Valhalla Golf Club, Louisville, KY — May 16, 2024

Scottie Scheffler has won four of the last five tournaments he has entered, including this year’s Masters. Scheffler took three weeks off to be with his wife Meredith to celebrate the birth of their son on May 8th. He is back this week in Louisville to compete in the 106th PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club.

He started his opening round as if he expected to continue his recent streak of victories by holing out from the fairway on the first hole. The eagle put him at two-under-par and served notice he would be a contender for the Wanamaker Trophy.

Scheffler finished the day with a four-under-par score of 67, tied for 12th.

It was Xander Schauffele who shot lights, posting nine birdies for an opening round of 62. Tieing the record for the lowest round in a major tournament.

Sahith Theegala, Tony Finau, and Mark Hubbard trail the leader, tied for second at six-under-par.

Seven players are tied for fifth at five under, including Rory McIlroy, Collin Morikawa, and Tom Hoge. Defending Champion Brooks Koepka matched Scheffler’s score of 67 and is a group of six tied for 12th.

Tiger Woods is in the field this week. His score of one over par 72 included some shots that made the highlight reel.
