Scottie Scheffler is an American golfer who plays on the PGA TOUR.
He graduated from his first season on the Korn Ferry Tour as Player of the Year and the following year was named PGA TOUR Rookie of the Year.
Having struggled to win in his first two years on the PGA Tour, in 2022 he burst from promising talent to worldwide star with four wins in six starts, the last of them the 2022 Masters. He also topped the world rankings for the first time.
Amateur and university career
He led the Korn Ferry Tour finals points list and overall points list, earning a fully exempt PGA TOUR card for the 2020 season. He also won the Korn Ferry Tour Player of the Year award, capping off a sensational start to his professional career.
"We are thrilled to see him earn both the 2019 Korn Ferry Tour Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year. He is a fantastic example of the growing youth presence we are seeing on our Tour and we are excited to see what he will accomplish on the PGA TOUR."
His finished T4th at the PGA Championship at TPC Harding Park and then backed it up with the same result at The Northern Trust.
Confirmation of his fine start on the circuit came with the announcement that he had won the PGA TOUR Rookie of the Year award. However, he was in quarantine when he learned of this due to having tested positive for COVID-19 and missed September's US Open.
Three weeks later Scheffler was at it again. In difficult conditions at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, a third round 67 got him back into the hunt and a level-par 72 on Sunday was enough to clinch a second triumph.
