Scottie Scheffler (-19) Wins the RBC Heritage for 4th in 5 Events — 1st Golfer in 39 Years to Win First Event After The Masters

The No. 1 players in the world in men’s and women’s golf are on some epic hot streaks at the moment. Sunday, it was Nelly Korda’s fifth straight victory. Monday, Scottie Scheffler — one week removed from conquering The Masters — became the first golfer since Bernhard Langer (1985) to win his first PGA Tour event after securing the green jacket. He won the RBC Heritage at Hilton Head on a Monday after a rain-delayed weekend, and he did it by three strokes (-19). Scheffler played 70 out of 72 holes at par or better, only carding a double-bogey and a bogey on his third and 72nd holes, respectively. And as great as Scheffler’s been, it’s still difficult to describe his level of dominance in modern-day golf.


Let Scheff Cook

Scottie’s recent success can be measured with all sorts of snapshots that feature win streaks in rare air. He’s played 40 consecutive rounds under par (seriously) since last August. He’s won 10 of his 51 starts since the 2021-22 season, including four of the last five. That means Scheffler captures 19.6 percent of the tournaments he plays. He also has 35 top-10s (68.6%) and 23 top-3s (45.1%) in that span. He’s the first player since Tiger Woods to crack the 15-point average mark, and the first player since Woods to win four of five straight tournaments (2007-08).


Being No. 1 in the world is one thing. What we’re witnessing is a golf legend who’s just getting started (27 years old). From green jacket to red jacket… Let the Scheff cook!
