Charles Schwab is looking to capitalize on its unexpected moment in the spotlight next week when the California-based multi-national financial services company will title-sponsor the first event back on the PGA Tour in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.

It will feature many of the world’s leading golfers, including Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm, Rickie Fowler, Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, and Patrick Reed. It is widely considered the greatest field in the history of the event, which dates back to 1946.
