After last week’s PGA Championship, several of the key players who contributed to the final-day drama of the second Major of the year are teeing it up at Colonial this week.

Justin Thomas claimed the second Major win of his career at Southern Hills, and, not resting on his laurels, the new World No.5 will be looking to continue that momentum as the PGA Tour heads to Texas. If he’s to win the Charles Schwab Challenge, he’ll have to beat a strong field that includes the man he defeated in last week’s playoff, Will Zalatoris.

The 120-man field is littered with other intriguing names, none more so than Mito Pereira, whose final-hole agony last week left the door open for Thomas to claim the Wanamaker Trophy for the second time in his career.

Several of the world’s top players flattered to deceive in Tulsa, including World No.1 Scottie Scheffler, World No.4 Collin Morikawa and World No.9 Jordan Spieth, but they all have a chance to get back on track in Fort Worth. The inclusion of those players alone would be enough to make this week’s field strong. Still, there are other high-profile entrants adding to a potentially fascinating tournament, including the holder, Jason Kokrak, who claimed the first of two PGA Tour wins in 2021 with a dramatic victory over Spieth by two shots

Add in Tommy Fleetwood, who finished in a tie for 5th last week, Abraham Ancer, who finished tied for 9th, World No.7 Viktor Hovland, World No.10 Sam Burns, and the ever-popular Rickie Fowler and we have the potential for one of the year’s most intriguing tournaments to date.
