Golf is back at the Charles Schwab

All you need to know, well sort of

Finally, golf is back after a three-month wait following the COVID-19 pandemic. Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth is hosting the Charles Schwab Challenge and nearly all the world’s best players will be teeing up today.

So here is the GolfPunk quick guide as to what to look out for

Brooks Koepka’s moustache

World number three is sporting a new Magnum, P.I look as he emerges from the COVID-19 lockdown.

Bryson DeChambeau’s muscles

Bryson came back from the winter break and was launching it with his new muscle-bound frame. Given another three months of lockdown watch out for how far the man from California will be booming it.

Players Mic’d up

The first man to wear a mic this week will be the crowd’s favourite (oh hang on there are none!), Ricky Fowler. Let’s hope they have a slight delay on the feed in case a player shows mild displeasure with a shot!

Higher scores and lost balls?

With no grandstands or banks of fans, there is going to be nothing to stop those wayward shots. Also, as Brooks Koepka pointed a while back, the lack of additional eyeballs to search for balls will mean more guys losing balls.
