Top Players at the Charles Schwab Challenge
First on the Official World Golf Ranking is Rory McIlroy. He was one of the hottest golfers on tour at the time of the COVID-19 shutdown. McIlroy has finished fifth or better in his last seven events. Moreover, his most recent win was at the World Golf Championship HSBC Champions.
Second, on the Official World Golf Ranking is Jon Rahm. In his last eight events, Rahm finished ninth or better seven times. Rahm posted back to back wins at the end of 2019. Rahm was the winner of the Mutuactivos Open de Espana. Subsequently, he won the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai.
Next on the OWGR list is Brooks Koepka. Koepka was slumping badly at the time of the COVID-19 shutdown. Koepka finished 47th in the most recent Arnold Palmer Invitational. Prior to that, he missed the cut at the Honda Classic. Of great concern was the 43rd place finish at the Genesis Invitational. Also bad was a 17th place finish at the Saudi International. And a 34th place debacle at Abu Dhabi.
Golf Betting Odds Picks
In this situation is a series of unknowns with the Golf Betting Lines. Many see the long break as something of a potential equalizer. While other gamblers may want to rely on proven players. On the whole, nobody has been better more recently than Rory McIlroy. So too has the rest of the field not come close to his recent run. Only Jon Rahm has compared.
