One And Done pools head back to Texas for the Charles Schwab Challenge at the Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth. This is the first of two non-Signature Events in a row, sandwiched between the Wells Fargo/PGA stretch, and the Memorial/U.S. Open to come. As a result, we will likely see a lot of the top golfers take at least one of these two weeks off, providing opportunity to make other picks.

Let’s go through what to think about in taking on the Charles Schwab Challenge.

Charles Schwab Challenge One And Done Pick Strategy: Purse Info

The Charles Schwab Challenge has a total prize purse of $9,100,000 with $1,638,000 to 1st place. That puts it at the exact same amount as the Houston Open from March, and similar to other events like the Cognizant Classic, Farmers Insurance Open, and Valero Texas Open.

It’s also well below the remaining Signature Events and Majors, meaning you need to balance saving your best golfers for other events while still taking golfers with a reasonable chance to win.
