This week the PGA Tour hits Fort Worth Texas and anther new sponsor for this event Charles Schwab, which is played over the stunning Colonial Country Club. The history of CCC is quite interesting as it came about through one man’s crusade to bring bent grass greens to Texas.
That man was Mr Marvin Leonard, who was so intent on bringing bent grass greens to his then golf club, the River Crest GC, that he offered to pay for two or three greens to be dug up and reseeded with bent grass. If the experiment did not work, he would then pay for them to be dug up again and reseeded back to Bermuda grass!
The president of River Crest GC at the time grew so weary of Marvin’s insistence about the greens that he told him "Marvin, if you're so sold on Bentgrass, why don't you go build your own golf course and put them in?" That became Marvin Leonard’s Eureka moment and the idea of the Colonial Golf Club was born.
Mr Leonard then commissioned John Bredemus of Texas and Perry Maxwell of Oklahoma to both submit five alternative course designs but after looking at the designs he asked them to submit five more. From the initial designs Marvin Leonard put together a composite course from which sprang the Colonial Country Club.
By 1935 the golf course and the first clubhouse neared completion and less than 10 years later the Colonial Country Club held its first US Open Championship in 1941. By 1946 the Colonial had its own tournament, ‘The Colonial Invitational’ with the inaugural event being won by none other than Ben Hogan, who retained the title the following year and won the event five times in his career.

My tips to Win:
This week’s defending champion is Justin Rose 11/1 – with BetFred – who has now slipped down to third place in the world rankings after Koepka’s win last week in the PGA Championship. The reason why I have stated that fact is because I know after spending several weeks as world number one, it will hurt him and he will be doing everything he can to gain top spot and that will be a driving force for him this week.
After missing the cut at last week’s PGA Championship, I am sure Jon Rahm 12/1 – with BetVictor – will be chomping at the bit to get his game back on track this week. Jon has a good record over the Colonial course with a runner-up in his first start and he followed that up with a Top 5 last year.
We will know over the next couple of weeks if Jordan Spieth 14/1 – with Ladbrokes – has really regained his mojo on the greens, but it certainly looked that way at Bethpage last week. Jordan’s third place finish should give him a lot of confidence coming into this week in his home state, to a tournament where he has only been outside the Top 15 once in six starts and has a win and two runner-up finishes.
I was surprised to see Kevin Kisner 40/1 – with SportingBet – miss the cut at last week’s PGA Championship and although he wasn’t one of my tips I did take a hard look at him thinking he may challenge. Kevin like a lot of players will be looking to put that performance behind him and what better way to do that than on a course you have played well on before, Kisner has three Top 10s in his last four starts here including a win.
Two wins should tell you all you need to know about how Zach Johnson 66/1 – with Ladbrokes – feels about the Colonial course, but he also has three other Top 10 finishes two of those being in the Top 5. Zach started well at the PGA Championship, but started to fall away on Saturday, but I am sure he will be looking forward to teeing it up here this week.
After such a great start at the PGA Championship last week firing an opening round of 64 Danny Lee 100/1 – with SportingBet – gradually slid out of contention. But it’s that opening round that I feel he will take a lot of positives from especially coming back to a course where he’s had a couple of Top 10 finishes in recent years.
Try Max Homa 150/1 – with SportingBet
As always good luck
