Keep on reading for more on Scottie Scheffler after he earned Player of the Week recognition for his championship showing in Augusta.

Leaving No Doubt

When Scheffler won the Masters in 2022, he shot 67 in the second round to move into the lead.

Not even Rory McIlroy shooting a 64 in the final round was able to put much pressure on Scheffler as he had a 10-under-par score of 278 to win the tournament by three shots.

When looking at Scottie Scheffler’s stats, he took control this year with a score of 66 in the first round, only a shot behind Bryson DeChambeau.

Scheffler was tied with DeChambeau and Max Homa for the 36-hole lead of 6-under 138.

Scheffler picked up two shots on Homa and four on DeChambeau in the third round with Collin Morikawa moving within a spot of Scheffler.

Double bogeys by Morikawa on holes No. 9 and 11 ended his title hopes, while Scheffler had six birdies in a span of nine holes.

He led by at least three shots for the final eight holes, and a final-round score of 68 enabled Scheffler to win the tournament by four shots.

“It’s hard to put into words how special this is,” Scheffler said after winning his second title at the Masters. “It’s been a long week, a grind of a week. The golf course was so challenging, and to be sitting here wearing this jacket again and getting to take it home is extremely special.”

Title Run Almost Didn’t Happen

Scheffler made it clear that he was ready to withdraw from the Masters at any point if he got word that his wife Meredith went into labor.

That never happened, but he was on alert for all four days of the tournament.

“I definitely have a way to get home pretty quickly,” Scheffler told the media after the third round. “We have somebody here that has access to the cell phone.

“I’ll be available to go home then whenever I need to.”

A Look At the Numbers

Scheffler is currently sitting atop the PGA rankings but that is not the only No. 1 spot he is holding when looking at Scottie Scheffler’s stats.

Scheffler leads the PGA Tour with a scoring average of 68.8, more than a shot better than Xander Schauffele. It has helped Scheffler make the cut in each of his nine events this season and finish in the top 10 eight times in 2024.

His birdie average of 5.43 is also first with Byeong Hun An holding down the No. 2 spot at 4.89.

He has hit greens in regulation 74.6% of the time and that also is the best mark on the tour.

How He Got Here

The 27-year-old New Jersey native went to qualifying school to land a spot on the Web.com tour in 2019 and a year later he was the PGA Rookie of the Year thanks to a fourth-place finish at the PGA Championship, and in the same month, he shot a 59 at The Northern Trust.

Scheffler’s first PGA Tour title came at the 2022 Phoenix Open in a playoff against Patrick Cantlay. That was one of his four titles in 2022.

He won the Phoenix Open in 2023, his second straight win at that tournament, and then captured the first of back-to-back titles at The Players Championship.

Speaking of going back-to-back, he won the Arnold Palmer Invitational by five strokes in May and a week later added his second straight title at The Players Championship.

He also has second-place finishes at the 2022 U.S. Open and at the 2023 PGA Championship. The best could be yet to come for Scheffler.
