Scottie Scheffler confirms birth of son in heartfelt Instagram post – World No 1 now set to play in this year’s PGA Championship


Scottie Scheffler confirmed the birth of her first child, a boy named Bennett, with a heartfelt Instagram post.

The world number one golfer uploaded a picture of the baby on Monday evening and tagged his wife Meredith in the post.

He wrote: ‘Welcome to the world baby. Your mom and dad love you so much.’

Although he did not confirm the name or gender, the official PGA Tour website said he and Meredith had a boy and named him Bennett.

The baby was born last week, May 8, and Scheffler is set to compete in the PGA Championship at Valhalla this week.

According to the Associated Press, Scheffler’s teammates congratulated him when he arrived at Valhalla for a practice round.

LIV golfer Jon Rahm was among the first to greet Scheffler on the green, hugging him and saying, ‘Did you get a lot of sleep?’

Scheffler has not played since winning the RBC Heritage at Harbor Town a week after winning his second Masters green jacket. He enters his second major of the year having won four of his last five tournaments – the exception being second place at the Houston Open.

He remains the betting favorite even though Rory McIlroy has made it two wins in a row (one of them a team event with Shane Lowry) and defending champion Brooks Koepka claimed his first win of the year at LIV Golf Singapore.

McIlroy won the PGA Championship at Valhalla in 2014, the last time he won a major. Koepka was tied for 15th in 2014, the year before he joined the PGA Tour.

Scheffler is trying to become the first player since Jordan Spieth in 2015 — and just the fifth player since 1960 — to win the first two majors of the year.
