Charles Schwab Round 3 Recap & Final Round Preview

Charles Schwab Round 3 Recap & Final Round Preview

World number one Scottie Scheffler remains on course to win his fifth tournament in his last ten starts as he holds a two-shot lead heading into today’s final round of the Charles Schwab Challenge. Here is our Charles Schwab Round 3 Recap & Final Round Preview.

In the toughest conditions we have seen by far, Scheffler produced a stunning 68 in the third round to assert his dominance over the rest of the field.

Scheffler is putting together one of the finest seasons we have ever seen and it will take something special from someone today to deny the Texan native another victory here.

Starting level with Scheffler at the start of the day was the American combination of Beau Hossler and Scott Stallings. Hossler just couldn’t get the putter working and despite some solid golf could only end up recording a disappointing round of 73, leaving him five shots back. 

Things went better for Stallings who was able to match his three bogeys with three birdies to record an even par round. Stallings will tee off two shots adrift, but look for him to apply some early pressure. If he can, we could be set for a dramatic final round.

As they do for every round, JazzSports have priced up the final round of this year’s Charles Schwab. Whether you fancy Scheffler to stroll to the finish line or an upset to happen, you can review all of the latest odds and place a bet here.

If backing favourites is your thing, then Scheffler’s price of -140 is still a backable price. Yes, the returns might be minimal but Scheffler’s game looks to be in such a good place that it’s hard to see him letting his lead slip.

Brendon Todd carded the best score in the third round posting an impressive 65 which saw him move to a share of second place at -9. Todd seems to like it in Texas, as his only other top ten of the season came in the Texas Open where he finished in a tie for 8th. By no means a prolific winner, Todd carries good form and momentum into the final round and odds of +700 could be the best alternative to Scheffler. 

Scott Stallings will be looking to build off yesterday’s solid round and win his first tournament since the 2014 Farmers Insurance Open. Stallings has had a pretty miserable time of things lately missing four of his last five cuts. He has turned that around this week and has thrown himself into the mix. Odds of +900 could be generous if Stallings can jump out of the blocks quickly.

Perhaps Scheffler’s biggest threat will come in the form of Harold Varner. Varner is steadily becoming one of the most consistent players on Tour and starts today’s final round just three strokes behind. He has recorded two top 5 finishes in his last three tournaments and another top 5 finish looks to be secured. Varner will need to score quickly, and interestingly he sits in 11th when it comes to birdie average at 4.35 per round.  If Varner can match his average he could find himself in the mix. Odds of +1000 could be the value play of the day.
