Jon Rahm and Gary Woodland are the latest marquee names to join the PGA Tour’s return at the Charles Schwab Challenge June 11-14 at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas.

Rahm, the No. 2 player in the world golf rankings, has two top five finishes in his three trips to Colonial and is the only two-time Ben Hogan Award winner.

“It’s no secret that this is one of my favorite weeks all year,” Rahm said, prior to last year’s tournament. “The Ben Hogan Award has a lot to do with it…I’ve been treated so well every time I’ve come to Fort Worth.”

Reigning U.S. Open champion Gary Woodland will be making his first trip to Colonial since 2012.

Woodland, currently ranked No. 18 in the world, was a member of the United States winning President’s Cup team in December. He has four top 10 finishes this season, including a tie for eighth at the Honda Classic, the last tournament he completed prior to the PGA Tour’s shutdown in response to the Covid 19 pandemic.

No. 19 Louis Oosthuizen, Daniel Berger, J.B. Holmes, Patton Kizzire, Russell Knox, Keith Mitchell and Jhonattan Vegas have also joined the field that already includes seven of the top 10 in the world.
