Phil Mickelson, who was priced as high as 250-1, won his sixth career major Sunday at the PGA Championship. He also became the oldest player to win a major on the longest golf course in major championship history. Mickelson led the best field of the year for Strokes Gained: Tee-To-Green and was fifth for SG: Approach. This week, "Phil the Thrill" is priced at 50-1 at the Charles Schwab Challenge.
Jordan Spieth (10-1) never factored into the mix at the PGA and finished tied for 30th, but is the tournament favorite this week. He won the Colonial in 2016 and finished second in 2015 and 2017. Spieth’s good friend Justin Thomas (12-1) tied for 10th in his first appearance here last year but was one of three of the top four players in the world, along with Dustin Johnson and Xander Schauffele, who missed the cut at Kiawah Island last weekend. Last year's Colonial champion, Daniel Berger (18-1), also missed the cut last weekend. Collin Morikawa (14-1), the man Berger defeated in the playoff last year, is back for redemption after missing a short putt on the first playoff hole and did backdoor his way into a top-10 finish last week.
Also finishing in last week's top 10 were Abraham Ancer (20-1), Tony Finau (22-1), Will Zalatoris (25-1), Scottie Scheffler (25-1) and Justin Rose (33-1). Patrick Reed (22-1), Corey Conners (25-1) and Sungjae Im (30-1) all finished in the top 20 in the PGA.
