  • The Charles Schwab Challenge is May 25-28 from Colonial Country Club.
  • It’s a positional course where length isn’t necessary to contend.
  • Prop bets are a good alternative to outright winner bets.

Prop bets are a nice alternative to outright winners in golf betting each week. For example, instead of selecting a player to win, picking him to finish in the top 10 might have better value. 

Given that Scottie Scheffler is a massive favorite (+400) this week at the Charles Schwab Challenge, these could make a lot more sense.

Below are my best prop bets for the Charles Schwab Challenge.

Charles Schwab Challenge 2023: Best Prop Bets 

Brian Harman +200 Top-20 Finish

Don’t let the missed cuts in three of his last four starts scare you, as Harman is much better suited for shorter, positional courses, which is what Colonial Country Club is. The one made cut in that stretch was a T-7 at the RBC Heritage, where Harbour Town Golf Links is very similar to Colonial.

The 36-year-old has five career top-25 finishes at this event, including a T-8 in 2021.

Eric Cole +280 Top-20 Finish

Cole is another player suited for courses like this where distance isn’t needed, and it’s about hitting fairways and greens. The 34-year-old has top-25 finishes in three of his last four starts.

The one thing against him this week is a lack of experience at the event, as this will be his first appearance.

Sepp Straka +300 Top-20 Finish

Straka hasn’t made a cut in two tries at this event, but he’s coming in hot. The 30-year-old finished T-7 at the PGA Championship and closed with a final-round 65.

He’s one of the streakiest players on Tour, so this is the time to ride his hot wave.
