The Charles Schwab Challenge has been held annually since 1946 at the Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas.
The event has been renamed several times with sponsor changes. The event has been called the Fort Worth Invitational, Dean & DeLuca Invitational, Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, Bank of America Colonial, MasterCard Colonial, Colonial National Invitation, Southwestern Bell Colonial and the Colonial National Invitation.
The event is one of five tournaments that are given an “invitational” status by the PGA Tour and does not offer open qualifying. The 2020 field will be larger than previous fields because of the coronavirus pandemic.
There are several players who have won the tournament more than once but only one golfer who has won the contest more than twice.
Here are the golfers who have had great success at the event.
