“It’s exciting. We’re starting to get the players to come in and put in their requests for exemptions as well as commitments to the tournament," Jim Whitten, the new Chairman for the Charles Schwab Challenge, said ahead of the 2022 event.
"It’s starting to happen, and everything is starting to grow around here. This is an unbelievable canvas and we don’t want to rush getting it done. We’re keeping the same charm as it is. 
"We’re not adding a par-5. It’s going to be the same thing, but it’s going to be new and improved. I think the fans, as well as the membership here, is going to really be pleased when it’s all done.”
Ben Hogan is the most successful golfer in the history of the Charles Schwab Challenge having won the tournament a record five times.
