Charles Schwab Challenge Round 1: How Did The Course Play
(3:23)

With the coronavirus pandemic still sweeping the nation and most of the globe, the PGA Tour has found a way to bring golf back with as many safety precautions as possible. This week’s Charles Schwab Challenge marks the first PGA Tour event in three months, the unintended benefit of which is an unbelievable field at a tremendous course for a sports-starved country to consume continuing Friday morning.

Colonial Country Club has always been one of the best — and one of my favorite — courses on the PGA Tour, and this week it has the field to prove it. Of the top 20 players in the world, only four will be absent this week, and all five of the top five in the world are playing. We should get a leaderboard packed with big-time names and some of the best players in the world.

Justin Thomas and Rory McIlroy are both making their first appearances at this tournament, while Brooks Koepka and Jon Rahm have both nearly won here before. They are among the innumerable storylines this weekend as the tournament expands its field from 120 players to 148 amid the pandemic. Thomas opened T3 after the first round with Justin Rose and Harold Varner III in the lead.

It’s been a strange year in golf, and maybe it will continue to be that way, especially with no fans at the first few events. But at least for a bit this week at Colonial, everything will feel familiar as the best players on the planet get their tee shots in the air and we get back to playing professional golf. Check out how CBS will be handling the weekend coverage of the Charles Schwab Challenge.

2020 Charles Schwab Challenge leaderboard: Live coverage, golf scores, updates, highlights in Round 1 – CBSSports.com

After the longest unplanned break for the PGA Tour since World War II, professional golf is back in a big way today at the 2020 Charles Schwab Challenge. A monstrous field that includes 80% of the top 20 players in the world is ready to roll at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas.

Storylines are abundant, and with the quality of this field, should be such all weekend. Rory McIlroy leads the way into the return of golf during a pandemic as the No. 1 player in the world who has not finished outside the top five on the PGA Tour since last August. He’s joined by Jon Rahm, Bryson DeChambeau, Webb Simpson, Justin Thomas — four of the best players on the planet this season — as well as a suddenly-healthy (and mustachioed) Brooks Koepka. We haven’t even touched on Phil Mickelson, Jordan Spieth and Rickie Fowler.

CBS Sports will be with you the entire way updating this story with the latest scores, updates and highlights from Round 1 of the 2020 Charles Schwab Challenge below. Check out the live scores at the top of this story or a more detailed leaderboard.

Brooks Koepka is off to a nice hot start after what has been a bumpy start to 2020. I was down on Koepka coming into the week, but he said his knee is much healthier, and he’s playing like it thus far. He’s played well here before, too, with a runner-up to Justin Rose (who is currently leading) back in 2018.

Largely untouched top of the leaderboard still, but this middle wave of golfers today is making a run, at least. Billy Horschel at 3-under through five; Danny Willett 2-under through five; Scottie Scheffler 2-under through five, too. Leader still Justin Rose, who is in the clubhouse at 7-under.

Jordan Spieth’s first hole: Bogey. Not a good start.

Big guns have arrived. World No. 1 Rory McIlroy — along with Brooks Koepka and Jon Rahm — are off the tee at No. 1. I’m predicting (hot take incoming!) the winner this week comes from this group.

Star-studded group of Justin Thomas, Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth are all off the tee on the par-5 first hole.

Justin Rose drops a tidy little 63 in his first round back in over three months. That’s amazing for a number of reasons. The first is that Rose has had a miserable 2020 thus far — although he did recently change equipment — and the second is that it’s lower than any round he had back in 2018 when he beat Brooks Koepka and Kevin Na to win this tournament. I’d be surprised if he isn’t at the very least the co-leader at the end of today.

Charles Barkley leaves Kobe and LeBron out of his list of top 5 NBA players of all-time – Yahoo Sports

LeBron James aren’t among the five best NBA players of all-time.” data-reactid=”16″ type=”text”>According to Charles Barkley, Kobe Bryant and LeBron James aren’t among the five best NBA players of all-time.

with Kentucky coach John Calipari this week. At the top, unsurprisingly, was Michael Jordan.” data-reactid=”17″ type=”text”>Barkley revealed his list of five best in a conversation with Kentucky coach John Calipari this week. At the top, unsurprisingly, was Michael Jordan.

“Michael’s one, Oscar Robertson’s two,” Barkley said. “[Bill] Russell, Wilt [Chamberlain] and Kareem [Abdul-Jabbar], no particular order after Michael. Kobe six, LeBron seven, then you’ve got Elgin Baylor, Jerry West.”

That’s a list that has some heavy throwback flavor. And while you may argue with the order of Barkley’s top seven, you can’t quibble much with the inclusion of all seven of those names. Each of them is one of the greatest players in NBA history.

And if you’ve been watching ESPN’s “The Last Dance,” that reason is a familiar one.” data-reactid=”21″ type=”text”>Barkley also explained why he had James (and, indirectly, Bryant) outside the top five. And if you’ve been watching ESPN’s “The Last Dance,” that reason is a familiar one.

I used to always tell people when you were playing the Pistons you had to call home and tell your family you love them just in case you never saw them again.”” data-reactid=”22″ type=”text”>“You know, I love LeBron and everything about him but I still think that the way they play the game today he didn’t want any part of those bad boy Pistons,” Barkley said. “Let me tell you something, those guys were out there trying to hurt people.
