The PGA Tour is back on the course this weekend with the Charles Schwab Challenge in Fort Worth, Texas. For the first time since the Arnold Palmer Invitational in early March, the best golfers in the world will head to Colonial Golf Club for the first PGA Tour event in over three months. BetRivers.com provides a wide variety of odds, moneylines and live betting for the PGA Tour’s return to the course.
“Golf betting is really popular with our bettors, as we saw with The Match 2 being the highest handle event outside a major in the US,” said Mattias Stetz, the C.O.O of Rush Street Interactive, which operates BetRivers.com and PlaySugarHouse.com. “We are looking forward to this weekend’s event, and expect the four days to beat the handle of any previous golf event, including any of the majors.”
The first round of the Charles Schwab Challenge begins on Thursday, June 11, with the final round taking place on Sunday, June 14. The Charles Schwab Challenge will be broadcast on The Golf Channel and CBS.
Rory McIlroy (+800) enters the Charles Schwab Challenge as the favorite to win. Currently ranked No. 3 in the FedEx Cup standings, he has finished in the top five in every event he has entered in 2020, including a victory at the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions on the European Tour.
McIlroy leads the PGA in average first-round score (67.50). The three-time PGA Tour Player of the Year is currently +1600 to hold the lead after the Thursday round on BetRivers.com.
