2022 WM Phoenix Open was a coming-out party for Scottie Scheffler. Undoubtedly, a win for Scottie here at TPC Scottsdale was going to happen soon and I believe one of many to come. This is a golfer with a complete game. Think about how he won this?
NFT Golf Tour was in a skybox on 16 when Scheffler, in the last group came in 2 back of Theegala and Cantlay. I put my bet down, as is customary for the closest to the hole, on Scheffler. Cantlay pulled his tee shot and it ran off the green to the left and a chorus of boos. Scheffler stepped up and pinned the green about mid-deep and the ball ran out towards the hole. Thinking that my money was safe Theegala stepped up and got inside of Scottie by 8 feet. Still not convinced that the rookie could pull it off, Cantlay got up and down for his par and Scheffler drained his birdie, on a similar line to Theegala who even with a read, missed his putt. Now only 1 back we left 16, drinks in hands, and followed them down 17 with the masses. Scheffler and Cantlay hit shot 10 yards short of the green and safe. Theegala pulled a club that found him the water and a bogey 5. Scheffler again birdied to tie the lead.
On 18 he hit a monster drive but could not convert and Cantlay and he moved to a playoff. 3 Playoff holes later and Scheffler had his first win. He doesn’t give up, he keeps fighting and this positive shot of confidence has him lined up to win again soon.
