He did hold us all up on switching over to watch the Superbowl but there was something great about Scottie Scheffler getting his first PGA Tour win at the WM Phoenix Open. The 25 year old went on a four birdie run coming home but agonisingly missed a six footer on 18 to seal the win.
That set up a playoff with “Stone Cold” Patrick Cantlay and on the third playing of the 18th hole, Scheffler canned from 26 feet to set up a hugely popular victory, which was celebrated for all of five seconds by the broadcasters before all of America's attention turned to the Rams and the Bengals!
The win sees Scheffler jump to a career high ninth in the latest World Rankings.
