I have never even heard of this guy, and now look at all that he has done…He has flied under the sports radar, but in the process, he has won nearly 13 million dollars this season on the PGA Tour, and the season is just barely half over….This guy is going crazy, and we must all be crazy for never hearing his name before today…
Honestly, I had never heard nor seen this man’s name until 10:30am this morning…As the old saying goes, “You learn something new every day”, and we are never too old to start learning new things, and with the help of YardBarker.com, today, we have been educated…..
March on/Play on Scottie Scheffler…..

from Chelena Goldman, with YardBarker.com/www.yardbarker.com
Matt Fitzpatrick won the 2022 U.S. Open, but Scottie Scheffler still snagged a little bit of the spotlight for setting the record for most money earned in a single PGA Tour season.
The 25-year-old pro banked $1.56 million after coming in second place at the Open, bringing his current season total to almost $13 million with seven weeks left on the Tour event calendar.
Per the PGA Tour, Scottie Scheffler has set a new record for earned money on the golf course this season with $12,896,849 (doesn’t include bonuses)

The New Jersey native has had a strong hold on the No. 1 spot in the World Golf Ranking since winning The Masters in April. He has won four out of six tournaments this season and been the runner-up three times, including showings at the Charles Schwab Challenge, and, of course, the U.S. Open. Scheffler ended the Open just one stroke behind Fitzpatrick, tied for second place with Will Zalatoris.
The 2022 PGA Tour continues with the Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Conn., later this week.
