Strong Field Set for 2021 Charles Schwab Challenge

Defending champion Daniel Berger will defend his title at the Charles Schwab Challenge next week against a strong field that includes 10 of the top 25 players in the world and a staunch group of former winners. The event is May 24-30 at historic Colonial Country Club, featuring a $7.5 million purse.

The top-ranked players are Justin Thomas (2), Collin Morikawa (6), Patrick Reed (8), Tony Finau (14), Berger (16), Billy Horschel (18), Abraham Ancer (19), Sungjae Im (21), Scottie Scheffler (22) and Lee Westwood (23).  Berger, Reed and Morikawa have all won tournaments this year and Berger and Morikawa dueled in last year’s playoff at Colonial. Thomas is the reigning PLAYERS Champion.  25-time European Tour winner Westwood will make his Colonial debut this year.

 

Local favorite and Colonial member Ryan Palmer will be on hand, along with Joaquin Niemann, K.H. Lee and Si Woo Kim. Other Charles Schwab Challenge champions scheduled for the stellar field include 2001 winner Sergio Garcia, 2016 champion Jordan Spieth, 2018 winner Justin Rose, 2019 winner Kevin Na, 2017 champion Kevin Kisner, 2015 champion Chris Kirk and two-time Colonial winners Zach Johnson and Phil Mickelson. TOUR favorites such as Matt Kuchar, Jason Dufner, Charley Hoffman, Brant Snedeker, Ian Poulter, Harold Varner III, Louis Oosthuizen and Gary Woodland will all be competing. 121 total players will play in the championship.
