Let's get right down to business. Here’s what you need to know about what used to be known as the Colonial.  It is the longest running non-major event held at the same site, since 1946.  We’ve got a field of only 120 invitees which means in general you can take more risks in your lineups.  There are only 100 players who have a legitimate chance of winning this weekend and the Top 70 plus ties will make the cut.  If you remember close to 20 years ago, this is the tournament that invited the first woman to participate in a PGA Tour event, Annika Sorenstam. 

Colonial Golf & Country Club is a short Par 70 measuring out 7,204 yards.  It is a real test with very tight fairways and small bentgrass greens.  The short hitters are in play on this course and you’ll notice that throughout my playbook.  We’re looking for accurate fairway drivers, good ball strikers with the ability to get the ball in tight to the pin (better known as proximity), and always a solid putting stroke.  Jordan Spieth is built for this course, and if there was a week I was going to use him, this would be it.

You really need to have a combination of course experience and success before reaching the top of the leaderboard at the Charles Schwab. Since Sergio Garcia won this event in his debut back in 2001, among the tournament’s champions, only Adam Scott in 2014 hadn’t recorded at least one top-15 finish in a prior edition and only Steve Stricker in 2009 also hadn’t logged at least one top 10.  If you take out Jordan Spieth’s win s few years ago, another common trend among the previous winners of this event is being seasoned. Seasoned is the nice way of calling these players older. The average age of the winners of this even over the last 20 years is over 35 years old.

GOOD LUCK THIS WEEK!
