It was a second Korn Ferry Tour title for Scottie Scheffler on Sunday, as he picked up the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship, in Ohio. 

A final round of 4-under 67 was all that was needed for Scheffler to finish on 12-under par and claim victory by two shots, over three others, including Beau Hossler. 

After making birdies at his fourth, fifth and sixth holes on the Scarlet Course at Ohio State University, Scheffler dropped his only shot of the day with a bogey on seven. 

More birdies followed from Scottie at twelve and sixteen and these were enough to seal his second victory of the season and give him plenty of confidence heading into his rookie season on the PGA Tour. 

“This definitely does a lot for my confidence”, Scheffler said. “It’s nice to get another win, it’s a lot of fun. I’m looking forward to the next couple of weeks and then getting the season started next month”. 

“My goal at the beginning of the year was to hopefully get the No. 1 spot and it’s nice to be in position to lock that up”, said Scottie, who is now Number 1 on the Korn Ferry Tour rankings. 

It was a good day too for Beau Hossler, who earned his PGA Tour card back, having posted four sub 70 rounds in Ohio. 

This season, Beau made 16 cuts in 27 starts in his sophomore season, leaving himself 145th in the FedEx Cup. 

Well done to both Scottie on securing another victory, just one week after earning his PGA Tour card and to Beau, who successfully earned back his playing rights for next season. 

Congratulations to Scottie Scheffler, who has earned himself a PGA Tour Card for the 2019/ 2020 season, due to being ranked 3rd at the end of the Korn Ferry Tour’s regular season.

The first 25 of 50 PGA Tour Membership cards were handed out on Sunday at the WinCo Foods Portland Open, at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club. 

Scottie will now carry over the points that he has already earned, to the Korn Ferry Tour finals, where positions on the Priority Ranking list will be finalised. 

Scottie has had a fantastic rookie season on the Korn Ferry Tour, recording his first professional victory at the Evans Scholars Invitational and also leading the tour in birdies made.

Overcoming a six-stroke deficit on Sunday at the Evans Scholars Invitational, Scottie shot a final round 9 under (63), to force a playoff with the 54-hole leader and made birdie on the second extra hole. 

The week previous, at the Nashville Golf Open, a final round of 8 under (64) saw him finish solo-second, losing to Robby Shelton in a play-off. 

There was another runner-up finish for Scottie at the Savannah Golf Championship earlier on in the year, falling just one shot short of winner Dan McCarthy. He shot rounds of 65 and 67 on Friday and Saturday to earn a share of the 54-hole lead. 

Well done Scottie on a fantastic Rookie season on the Korn Ferry Tour. We know that you’re destined for the PGA Tour!

Scottie Scheffler made up a six-shot deficit to claim his first Tour title at the Evans Scholars Invitational yesterday. 

The Texan rookie defeated Marcelo Rozo on the second playoff hole, having posted a final round nine-under par (63) to force the playoff and drained a fifteen-foot birdie putt on the second extra hole to capture his first professional win.

Scheffler started the day six shots back, but made three birdies in his opening five holes to cut the lead.

When he hit the back nine, Scottie recorded birdies at both the tenth and eleventh holes, a par at twelve and then went on to birdie thirteen, fourteen, fifteen and seventeen which catapulted him to the top of the leaderboard. 

Marcelo Rozo could not make birdie on either of his final two holes, meaning they were headed for a playoff. 

On the first playoff hole, both Scottie and Rozo missed their birdie attempts, so they went back to the eighteenth tee again. 

Rozo’s approach shot landed in the greenside rough, while Scottie put his second shot to fifteen feet. He rolled in this putt and with that picked up his maiden Tour victory.

“It feels great. It’s been a good season so far and it’s nice to get my first professional win out here,” Scheffler said. “To get the first professional win is awesome, and it kind of gets the monkey off my back. Hopefully, it’ll lead to some bigger things to come this year.”

With this win, Scheffler earns 500 Tour Points and moves into second in The 25. 

Well done Scottie, we are all so thrilled of you. Your recent performances showed that a win was just around the corner.
