Scottie Scheffler’s Impressive Performance Continues with RBC Heritage Win

Published by PGA TOUR Staff

Scottie Scheffler, the world’s top-ranked golfer, continued his remarkable run of form by capturing the RBC Heritage title at Harbour Town Golf Links. A week after donning the coveted Masters green jacket, Scheffler added the tournament’s signature red tartan plaid jacket to his growing collection, securing his fourth victory in his last five events.

Scheffler carded a 3-under 68 in the final round to finish at 19-under 265, besting Sahith Theegala by three shots. Wyndham Clark and Patrick Cantlay finished tied for third at 15-under. The win makes Scheffler the first player since Bernhard Langer in 1985 to triumph the week after winning the Masters.

The only thing that could have slowed Scheffler down on Sunday was Mother Nature, as inclement weather caused a delay in the final round. However, the world No. 1 quickly regained momentum on Monday, completing his final three holes to wrap up the convincing triumph.

Scheffler’s remarkable run of success has been a testament to his consistent and dominant play. His only blemish during this stretch was a runner-up finish at the Texas Children’s Houston Open, where he narrowly missed a birdie putt that would have forced a playoff.

Elsewhere, Billy Horschel put on a stunning display at the Corales Puntacana Championship, firing a course-record 9-under 63 in the final round to secure a two-shot victory. Horschel’s impressive performance included four consecutive birdies on the front nine and an eagle on the par-5 12th hole.

As the PGA TOUR heads to the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, the spotlight will be on the team event, with marquee pairings such as Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele, as well as Rory McIlroy and Shane Lowry, set to compete. With the 2024 Paris Olympics golf competition just 100 days away, the excitement for the sport’s return to the global stage is palpable.
