PGA champion Justin Thomas, Masters winner Scottie Scheffler and three-time major champ Jordan Spieth highlight the field for the 2022 Charles Schwab Challenge this week at Colonial Country Club. The invitational tournament in Fort Worth, Texas tees off Thursday, and Scheffler will be looking to bounce back from his missed cut in last week's PGA Championship, where Spieth tied for 34th. Thomas beat Will Zalatoris in a playoff to win his second major last week at Southern Hills. Spieth was the runner-up to Jason Kokrak at Colonial last season, and 2020 winner Daniel Berger and Collin Morikawa, the runner-up that year, also are among those scheduled to compete as part of the strong post-major field.        

Scheffler is the 10-1 favorite in Caesars Sportsbook's latest 2022 Charles Schwab Challenge golf odds, with Thomas right behind at 12-1. Spieth is priced at 14-1 and Morikawa is 16-1, while Berger (35-1) and Kokrak (40-1) are longer shots to contend for the Charles Schwab 2022 title.

Which players can you trust for your 2022 Charles Schwab Challenge fantasy golf picks? Before you bet this PGA Tour event or lock in your lineups, you NEED to see the 2022 Charles Schwab Challenge Fantasy golf rankings from Fantasy expert Riley Gates.

Gates is a writer for 247Sports and has covered a range of sports for nearly five years. He has followed golf closely for much longer and has a profound knowledge of the sport. He also knows what it takes to win, on the course and in fantasy sports.

Before the PGA, Gates had both Thomas and 30-1 shot Zalatoris among his top five picks. "He ironed out any wrinkles at the Byron Nelson and will attack the PGA", Gates said of Thomas. The result? Thomas stormed back from seven shots back on Sunday and beat Zalatoris in a playoff to win his second PGA Championship.  

The previous week before the Wells Fargo Championship, Gates was on fire, with four of his top six players finishing in the top five. That included winner Max Homa, a 40-1 long shot, and runners-up Keegan Bradley (35-1) and Matt Fitzpatrick (22-1).   

Gates has been on a roll all season. He nailed Jon Rahm as the winner in the Mexico Open, and eight of his 20 picks finished in the top eight at the Masters. He was on the money with his predictions at the Sentry, with four of his top seven picks posting top-five finishes, and he duplicated that at the Hero World Challenge. Anyone who has followed Gates is WAY UP!

Now, Gates has ranked his top players for the 2022 Charles Schwab Challenge. We can tell you that Gates is continuing to back Zalatoris. The young star nearly backed up the expert's confidence in him at the PGA Championship, and Gates expects Zalatoris to get that first win this week.

On the other hand, Gates is fading Spieth after the Dallas native had a rough go at the PGA. Spieth has played well at Colonial, but the expert says "you just never know for sure which Spieth you're going to get." The three-time major winner barely cracks Gates' top 10 this week.

For the 2022 Charles Schwab Challenge, the Fantasy expert is behind a long shot who comes in priced at more than 50-1! Gates said this player's results this year should earn him more respect, and the Fantasy expert is giving it to him in his rankings this week. You ABSOLUTELY need to see who Gates is backing and check out his top picks before you bet the 2022 Charles Schwab Challenge or enter any 2022 Charles Schwab Challenge fantasy golf picks.
