He then birdied the second extra hole for his first Web.com Tour victory.

Scheffler’s father Scott was a stay-at-home dad, while his mother Diane worked as a chief operating officer at the law firm Thompson & Knight.
His interest in golf began at age 3, when his parents gave him a set of plastic clubs and ball.
After the move to Dallas, Scheffler received tutelage at the Royal Oaks Golf Club under instructor Randy Smith, who coached Justin Leonard to a victory at The Open Championship in 1997.
Scheffler had prolific success at the youth level, and won 75 times on the PGA junior circuit, competing against the likes of fellow Dallas-area native Will Zalatoris.
To catch you up, Scheffler walked in front of Smith when he was lining up a putt during the first round of the FedEx St. Jude Championship.
Folks online began to theorize that this was 100 per cent a shot fired by the Masters champion over Smith’s reported Saudi-backed future.
Of course, there was more than likely absolutely nothing in it. Scheffler was perhaps just a tad frustrated with his start. I mean, he did this to his putter.
Anyway, a hole later at TPC Southwind, Smith holed out for an eagle and high-fived the 25-year-old leading the FedEx Cup standings.
If there was bad blood there, it was short-lived. But apparently, when the pair got back into the clubhouse they found the incident utterly hilarious.
The great swings of the Masters come in many different shapes and forms, timings and tempos.
We’ll almost certainly see a new addition to the pantheon on Sunday, with six of the seven players within eight shots of the 54-hole lead all vying for their first green jacket.
The overwhelming favorite is Scottie Scheffler, the only player in the tournament to string three consecutive rounds under par, and the leader by three going into Sunday.
His swashbuckling golf swing has caught the attention of players and fans alike.
“You can’t teach that. It’s unteachable,” Jon Rahm said of Scheffler’s swing. “If you try, you’d probably end up hurting people.”
When fans or fellow golfers talk about Scheffler’s move, they often key in on two moves: His footwork, and his funky follow through.
Always by his side! Scottie Scheffler has given credit to wife Meredith Scheffler throughout his golf career.
The professional athlete and his future spouse met when they were teenagers attending Highland Park High School in Texas.
The pair exchanged vows in December 2020 and Meredith continued to cheer for Scottie as his career took off.
In April 2022, Meredith caddied for her husband during the Par 3 Contest ahead of the 86th Masters Tournament at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia.
“First timers at the Par 3 & it definitely lived up to the hype. Mere is still working on cleaning the grooves …” he captioned a series of photos from the event via Instagram at the time.
