Scottie Scheffler, 27, breaks his own PGA Tour earnings record AGAIN after picking up another $4 MILLION with Memorial win


Scottie Scheffler broke another new ground on Sunday when he set another PGA Tour single-season earnings record with a victory at the Memorial Tournament.

The world number one has enjoyed a remarkable start to the 2024 season with wins at both The Masters and The Players Championship.

Scheffler raised the bar in both 2022 ($14,046,910) and 2023 ($21,014,342). He has now won five of his last eight tournaments – including the RBC Heritage and Arnold Palmer Invitational.

He finished lower than T10 just once all season, although the 27-year-old also became a father and was arrested in notable scenes at the PGA Championship.

Scheffler earned another $4 million with his Memorial win, bringing his total for the year to $24,024,553.

That’s more than he earned ($21,014,342) in all of 2023. It’s also more than double the next highest earner, Xander Schauffele ($11,597,071).

The likes of Rory McIlroy ($7,712,665) and Collin Morikawa ($6,757,882), his nearest challenger at Muirfield Village, have earned less than a third of Scheffler’s total in 2024.

Incredibly, with only 27 years remaining, the world No. 1 has now climbed from ninth to seventh on the PGA Tour overall with career earnings of $66,589,782.

On Sunday, Scheffler was greeted on the 18th green by his wife Meredith and their son Bennett, after the world number one recorded his first victory since becoming a father.

In emotional scenes, Meredith handed Bennett to Scheffler and said, “We’re so proud of you! I am very proud of you! Say ‘Daddy, I love you!’. I’m so proud of you!’

The world number one’s family was waiting for him as he secured a one-shot victory over Morikawa despite shooting a two-over-par 74 on Sunday.

It was the first tournament Scheffler had won since becoming a father and also the first since police charges were dropped following his shock arrest at the PGA Championship in May.
