Round 4 Recap — Sunday

Jason Kokrak claims his second win of the season at Charles Schwab Challenge

Even though he didn’t have his best round on Sunday, Kokrak ($9,000; 114.5 DKFP) did enough to outlast Jordan Spieth ($11,200; 105.5 DKFP) in the final round at Colonial Country Club. Kokrak had five bogeys in his final round but matched them with five birdies to shoot even par while Spieth shot two-over with five bogeys and just two birdies, including a bogey on the last hole which he entered one shot behind Kokrak. Kokrak also won the CJ Cup at Shadow Creek last fall and posted top-10 finishes at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, THE PLAYERS Championship and the WGC-Workday at The Concession. Spieth finished runner-up and now has five top-10 finishes in his past six events and three second place finishes at this event. — Zach Thompson

Charley Hoffman surges to tie for third with lowest round of Sunday

Hoffman ($8,700; 98.5 DKFP) fired a five-under on Sunday at Colonial Country Club to surge into a tie for third at the Charles Schwab Challenge. Hoffman had six birdies and just one bogey to tie with Troy Merritt ($7,000; 83 DKFP) for the best score of the day. Merritt finished solo-seventh with a -7 while Hoffman finished with a score of -10 that left him knotted up with Patton Kizzire ($7,400; 105.5 DKFP), Sebastian Munoz ($7,000; 96.5 DKFP) and Ian Poulter ($7,700; 94 DKFP). Hoffman now has five top-10 finishes this season and has been in the top 20 in eight of his past nine events. — Zach Thompson

Round 3 Recap — Saturday

Jordan Spieth holds narrow lead over Jason Kokrak at Charles Schwab Challenge

At -15, Spieth ($11,200; 106.5 DKFP) leads Kokrak ($9,000; 88 DKFP) by one stroke heading into the final round of the Charles Schwab Challenge. Both players converted six birdies apiece on Saturday and shot four-under 66s at Colonial Country Club. Competing in his home state of Texas, Spieth was owned by 18.3% of the field in the $750K Flop Shot while Kokrak was only at 8.3%. From a betting perspective, Spieth is the current favorite on DraftKings Sportsbook at -250 to win this event with the one shot advantage, and Kokrak is right behind him with the second-best odds at +225. — Alex Hunter

Sergio Garcia, Sebastian Munoz and Ian Poulter all in the hunt at Charles Schwab Challenge

Garcia’s ($7,500; 81.5 DKFP) stellar week at Colonial Country Club continued Saturday with a two-under 68. Following this round, the 2017 Masters champion currently sits at -10, five shots behind leader Jordan Spieth ($11,200; 106.5 DKFP). Next on the leaderboard are Sebastian Munoz ($7,000; 75.5 DKFP) and Ian Poulter ($7,700; 76.5 DKFP), who are eight shots under par. Munoz struggled Saturday, only carding an even par 70, but Poulter made his mark on moving day, firing a six-under 64 — the lowest number of the third round. It’s worth noting all three of Garcia, Poulter and Munoz were less than seven percent owned in the $750K Flop Shot. — Alex Hunter


Round 2 Recap — Friday

Jordan Spieth leads after second round of Charles Schwab Challenge

Spieth ($11,200) was the most expensive golfer for this week’s Charles Schwab Challenge, and he’s lived up to expectations early in the week. He opened with a seven-under-par 63 on Thursday and followed that up with a four-under-par 64 on Friday. That brought him to 11-under-par for the tournament, which gives him a one-shot leading heading into the weekend. Jason Kokrak ($9,000) is in second place heading into the weekend, while Patton Kizzire ($7,400), Sebastian Munoz ($7,000) and Sergio Garcia ($7,500) are tied for third at eight-under-par. Spieth is the betting favorite to win the tournament at -106 on DraftKings Sportsbook, but Kokrak isn’t far behind at +450. — Matt LaMarca

Phil Mickelson headlines missed cuts at Charles Schwab Challenge

Mickelson ($8,500) made history last week at the PGA Championship, becoming the oldest player in history to win one of the four major championships. He came seemingly out of nowhere to pull it off, with his best finish over his past 10 outings checking in at T21. Unfortunately, he came crashing back to reality this week at the Charles Schwab Challenge. He finished at two-over-par, which put him on the wrong side of the cut line by one stroke. That said, Mickelson’s disappointment isn’t a huge shock to fantasy owners. He commanded an average ownership of just 2.6%, so him missing the cut didn’t come as a huge surprise. Chris Kirk ($7,600) was the only golfer with a top-10 ownership who failed to qualify for the weekend— Matt LaMarca


Round 1 Recap — Thursday

Jordan Spieth, Sergio Garcia race out to lead at Charles Schwab Challenge

Spieth ($11,200; 62.5 DKFP) played an exceptional round of golf on Thursday at the Charles Schwab Challenge, opening the tournament with a seven-under 63 to take a share of a two-shot lead into Friday. He went off at 18.3% ownership in the $750K Flop Shot and rewarded his many owners with a bogey-free round and seven birdies, including four in succession from holes seven to 10. He currently holds +175 odds on DraftKings Sportsbook to win the event from here, while Sergio Garcia ($7,500; 65 DKFP), the co-leader, has the next-best odds at +600 after carding five birdies and an eagle on Thursday. Erik Compton ($6,000; 42.5 DKFP) sits all alone in second at -5. — Kenny Ducey

Brian Harman, Abraham Ancer have work ahead of them at Charles Schwab Challenge

Harman ($8,000; 17 DKFP) and Ancer ($9,700; 22 DKFP) were the two most popular players in the $750K Flop Shot, both north of 21% ownership, but they each had so-so opening rounds. Harman sits in a tie for 24th after a very pedestrian day that saw him trade two birdies out for a bogey on the 14th, while Ancer shot even par for the day, but had a far more erratic go of it — he started on the back and was even through seven with a bogey on 14 and a birdie on 15 before he double-bogeyed 17. Ancer then got those two shots back with an eagle on the first. He went on to make three bogeys and three birdies on the front to finish seven back of the leaders at -7. — Kenny Ducey
