Scottie Scheffler Player Profile And What's In The Bag
Article Updated March 2023
SCOTTIE SCHEFFLER became the first golfer since Tiger Woods to hold both the Masters and Players Championship titles at the same time as the brilliant American produced a masterclass in leading to triumph at TPC Sawgrass.
The 26-year-old shot rounds of 68-69-65-69 to secure the prestigious title, the staggering $4.5m first prize, and regains the world number one spot from Jon Rahm.
England's Tyrrell Hatton produced a sensational final round of 65 to finish in second at the PGA Tour's flagship event, but it was Scheffler who ultimately won by a comfortable five strokes, ending the week on 17-under and establishing himself as the man to beat ahead of his defence at Augusta National in April.
Scottie Scheffler was born in Ridgewood, New Jersey on June 21, 1996 and is married to Meredith. He started playing at the age of three when his parents gave him a set of plastic clubs and ball.
Scheffler had prolific success at the youth level, and won 75 times on the PGA junior circuit. He was barely 5ft tall when he started high school but experienced a growth spurt and is now 6ft 3in.
In 2013 he won the US Junior Amateur and went on to attend the University of Texas from 2014 until 2018. He was a member of the US Walker Cup team in 2017 and qualified for the US Open in 2016, when he missed the cut by a stroke. He qualified again in 2017 and this time played all 72 holes, finishing as low amateur.
He turned professional and joined the Web.com Tour, winning the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship, gaining his PGA Tour card and being named Korn Ferry Tour Player of the Year.
In August 2020, Scheffler finished tied for fourth at the US PGA Championsip. In August 2020 he shot a 12-under-par 59 at the Northern Trust. It was the 12th sub-60 round in PGA Tour history. He was named rookie of the year in 2019-20 and qualified to play for the US Ryder Cup team after a series of top-five finishes. His first win came at the 2022 Phoenix Open. Three weeks later he added the Arnold Palmer Invitational and then claimed the WGC Dell Technologies Match Play. His crowning achievement came when he won The Masters and climbed to the top of the world rankings. He was named 2022 PGA Tour Player of the Year and qualified for the US Presidents Cup team.
