Scotty Scheffler (USA) won the ‘fifth major’ PGA Tour Players Championship (total prize money of 25 million dollars) and regained the top spot in the World Golf Ranking (OWGR).
Schaeffler won the tournament held at TPC Sawgrass in Pontevedra Beach, Florida on the 13th (Korean time) by 5 strokes, and won 6 wins, including 1 major win, in 1 year and 1 month, starting in mid-February last year. Looking at the graphics created by the PGA Tour, the ranking that started at 1640th in 2019 took three years to climb to the top without a single ups and downs.
Schaeffler, who competed in world No. 15 on February 13 of last year, won the WM Phoenix Open and climbed to 9th place, followed by winning the Arnold Palmer Invitational (March 6) and the World Golf Championship (WGC) Del Match Play for the first time in the world. climbed on top He followed this up by winning the Masters, a major in the first week of April. 토토사이트
After losing the first place to Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) who won The CJ Cup on October 23 last year, he succeeded in defending his title at this year’s WM Phoenix Open and rose to world No. I lost it, but after 3 weeks, I regained the world number one title for the third time.
With this, Schaeffler became the first player to reach the top for a total of 32 weeks, equaling Vijay Singh (Fiji). Nick Price (Zimbabwe) has maintained the top spot for 44 weeks, ranking 11th on the all-time list. For reference, Rahm stayed normal for 46 weeks and McIlroy for 122 weeks.
Schaeffler, who will challenge to defend the title at Del Match Play two weeks later, is currently leading the team in each field, including driver shots from tee to green, short game, and putt, so he is poised to continue this momentum. I wonder how long Schaeffler’s heyday, which belatedly blossomed four years after his professional debut, will last.
