Scottie Scheffler Player Profile And What's In The Bag

By: Golfshake Editor | Mon 13 Feb 2023 | Comments

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.

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.
