In what would have been “Moving Day” at Colonial had the tournament been contested on its originally scheduled dates, the Charles Schawb Challenge moved closer to having its greatest field ever with the addition of Tony Finau, Adam Hadwin and Matt Wallace to the PGA Tour‘s return June 11-14 in Fort Worth, Texas.
Finau, currently ranked No. 16 in the world, was the runner-up in last year’s Charles Schwab Challenge, finishing four strokes behind Kevin Na. His lone PGA Tour win came in the Puerto Rico Open on the third hole of a sudden death playoff. Finau was in the final group of the 2019 Masters Tournament with Francesco Molinari and Tiger Woods, who went on to win his 15th major championship.
Wallace, who is ranked No. 43 in the world golf rankings, plays primarily on the European Tour, where he has four career victories. His Colonial debut would be his fourth PGA Tour start this season, but only the second in the United States following the Arnold Palmer Invitational where he finished in a tie for 24th.
Wallace finished in a tie for third along with Jordan Spieth and Patrick Cantlay in the 2019 PGA Championship behind champion Brooks Koepka and runner-up Dustin Johnson at Bethpage Black.
Hadwin is currently ranked 55th in the world and is No. 38 in the FedEx Cup standings. He has one PGA Tour victory, the 2017 Valspar Championship and played on the International team in the 2019 President’s Cup at Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Australia.
Hadwin is one of nine players to have a sub-60 round on the PGA Tour. He fired a 59 in the third round of the American Express at La Quinta Country Club where he would go on to finish as the runner-up to Hudson Swafford.
The 2020 Charles Schwab Challenge field currently has six of the top 10 in the world committed to playing at Colonial.
