Charles Schwab Challenge Preview: Rose Returns
Charles Schwab Challenge Preview: Rose Returns

This article is part of our Weekly Preview series.

The PGA Tour heads back to Texas this week to play one of the shorter courses on the schedule. After a week at Bethpage, it's akin to going from Comerica Park to Ebbets Field, though that was never really possible as they didn't exist at the same time, but you get my point – it's a whole different ball game this week. Speaking of last week, there's simply not enough space here to describe how good Brooks Koepka has become during the majors. To put it simply, he's in a class with only Tiger Woods right now as guys who can intimidate the entire field. Sure, DJ is scary when he's on; but too often at majors, he fades, just like he did late on Sunday. Credit to DJ for the charge, but when it got real, DJ's game left him. You can blame the conditions, but if we are making excuses, then it's safe to say there is no way Koepka bogies four straight holes on the back nine. Anyhow, as for this week, there is a surprising amount of firepower in the field, and the course, while short, should provide plenty of entertainment.   

This week: Charles Schwab Challenge – Colonial CC - Fort Worth, TX 

Last Year: Justin Rose shot a final-round 64 on his way to a four-stroke victory over Emiliano Grillo.
