Scottie Scheffler Dominates to Win Weather-Delayed RBC Heritage

World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler continued his recent fine form by securing a three-shot victory in the storm-delayed RBC Heritage in South Carolina.

The 27-year-old was on course for victory on Sunday but with three holes remaining play was suspended due to stormy conditions and then darkness caused play to be stopped and resumed on Monday.

The Masters champion did not let the weather affect his performance as he carded a three-under 68 in the final round to end the tournament on 19 under and seal his fourth win in five starts on the PGA TOUR.

“Last week was fantastic and then coming into this week, I didn’t have my usual prep work,” Scheffler said. “Showed up, rested, ready to go. Got off to a slow start on Thursday, but then I played some really nice golf in the middle of the tournament.

“I’m just maturing as a person on the course. I think the last month or so has been as good as I’ve been mentally in a long time. I think that’s why I’m seeing some of the results, you know, just staying in it and doing the best I can. A lot of that stuff is easier said than done, but I’m proud of how I’ve been mentally on the course the last bit.”

Scheffler finished three clear of Sahith Theegala, while there was a tie for third between American pair Wyndham Clark and Patrick Cantlay.

The next even on the PGA TOUR schedule is the Zurich Classic taking place between 25-28 April at TPC Louisiana.
