Scottie Scheffler was forced to climb a fence and fall after a bad tee shot at the PGA Championship … he lost four shots in three holes on the third day after his arrest.


After starting his Friday with off-course problems, Scottie Scheffler had a poor start to Saturday on the course – after the world number one scored poorly on the first four holes.

Scheffler was high on adrenaline Friday morning after the shocking arrest, but he was able to play well enough to finish the day at nine-under in two rounds.

However, his start to Saturday’s third round was not the same as the previous day – Scheffler went double bogey-bogey-bogey on holes 2-4 with some truly awful golf.

His tee shot on the second hole found a fairway bunker, and his saving putt from the sand was very deep. Shot number three was caught in the thick grass, forcing him to putt four well before he needed two putts to jam for double.

After carding that six on the second par four, he hoped to recover on the third hole. Unfortunately, his six-foot putt for par just dropped out and he bogeyed.

That led to his tee shot on the No. 4 hole — which went well left, bounced short of the boardwalk and went through fans’ feet, past the cart path and under the fence.

The ball came to rest in the penalty area and was too close to the block to get a good shot. So Scheffler dropped just over 60 feet from the green.

A simple chip was all that was needed, but Scheffler got his putt down and missed the short grass. His fourth shot missed the hole and he ended up making a ten-foot putt for bogey.

It was a terrible start for Scheffler, but he almost immediately began to recover with a birdie on the par-four 5th hole.

It’s been a wild 48 hours for the Masters champion after he was arrested and charged with second-degree felony assault on a police officer, as well as three other non-criminal charges.

Scheffler’s attorney says his client plans to plead not guilty and said his client «has done nothing wrong.»
