There’s heaters. And then there’s whatever Scottie Scheffler is on these days.
The new No. 1 in the Official World Golf Ranking has seen his victory total—and his bank account—swell in 2022.
The 25-year-old former Texas Longhorn came into the year still in search of his first PGA Tour win. A member of the winning U.S. Ryder Cup team, it was becoming a matter of “when” not “if” he would find the winner’s circle.
Well, Scheffler answered that at TPC Scottsdale in February, surviving a playoff against last year’s FedEx Cup champ Patrick Cantlay in the WM Phoenix Open.
So far in 2022, he’s banked $6,323,663 in on-course earnings. That’s almost half of his total career earnings of $14,901,992 (which ranks 141st all-time).

Scheffler is not in the field this week in San Antonio for the Valero Texas Open.
He will next tee it up at Augusta National Golf Club the following week for the Masters Tournament, where he will no doubt be one of the favorites to don the green jacket.
