Charles Schwab Challenge Second Round Coverage
Is it old-timer’s month for the PGA Tour? 2001 Charles Schwab Challenge winner Sergio Garcia opened with his lowest score on Tour since 2016.
On the younger side, local favorite Jordan Spieth birdied his last three holes (Nos. 7-9) to post his best score in 33 rounds at the Charles Schwab Challenge. Spieth won the 2016 Charles Schwab Challenge champion and now seeks his second win of the season and third consecutive Top-10 finish in this event.
Playing on a sponsor exemption and in just his fourth Tour event since the conclusion of the 2015-16 season, Erik Compton opens with a bogey-free 5-under 65, his lowest score on Tour in six years. (See story below).
Defending Charles Schwab Challenge champion Daniel Berger opened with 2-under (68), while 2000, 2008 Charles Schwab Challenge winner and last week’s PGA champion Phil Mickelson opened with a 3-over (73) in his 17th Colonial start.
Since 1990, the first-round leader/co-leader has won the Charles Schwab Challenge just three times.
