He reached the top of the world rankings almost on tiptoe. Similarly now Scottie Scheffler becomes number one in box office, even surpassing Jordan Spieth and, listen, Tiger Woods. Scottie Scheffler, the true revelation of golf 2022, has become a phenomenon of earnings as well.
With the second place in the US Open, he reached the quota of 12,896,849 dollars collected in 2022 which represents the record of winnings – as regards the tournaments – in a single season for a golfer. The American managed to surpass the previous record of Jordan Spieth (12 million in 2015) but also of Tiger Woods (10.8 million in 2007).
Scottie Scheffler, situation
The low profile professional, between faith and results, began his escalation last February with the exploit at the Phoenix Open. Then, in March, he won the Arnold Palmer and the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play.
Then, in April came the consecration to The Masters. In the middle there are also many top 10 who have now crowned him as the new Scrooge of the green. It is unlikely that someone so launched will be able to take the plunge, that is to leave PGA Tour to move to LIVGolf, a choice made in the last few hours by Brooks Koepka and the Mexican Abraham Ancer.
LIVSeries are not worth points for ranking. For its part, the PGA Tour does not stand by and after putting the players who have chosen the SuperLega off the circuit, it has revised the calendar for the 2023 season. From next September, eight tournaments could arrive without cutting, with prize pools of at least 20 million dollars per game, which will feature the top 50 players of the 2022 FedEx Cup.
Jay Monahan, commissioner of the major American circuit, would have informed the players of the PGA Tour about the news scheduled for next autumn. Scottie Scheffler (Ridgewood, June 21, 1996) is an American golfer. He was born in the town of Ridgewood, in the state of New Jersey, on June 21, 1996 into a wealthy family, the son of Scott and Diane Scheffler.
He became passionate about the world of golf as a child, playing at the city’s Highland Park. At the age of seven, he moved with his family to Dallas.
