Scottie Scheffler’s number 1 secret

In another milestone for American golfer Scottie Scheffler (25) this year, he eased past Kevin Kisner to complete a 4&3 victory at Austin Country Club. Victory could not have been sweeter for Scheffler, the fifth seed who defeated former world number one Dustin Johnson in the semi-finals earlier and also eliminated defending champion Billy Horschel in the last 16 on Saturday.

Scheffler’s third PGA Tour victory of the year following wins at the Phoenix Open and Arnold Palmer Invitational saw him end Rahm’s 36-week reign at the top of golf’s global rankings. “I really don’t know what to say,” an emotional Scheffler said afterwards.

“I’m just really pleased." “It’s a tough week, a long week. I figured out my routine to keep some energy. But I’m pretty worn out right now to be honest. “It’s a dream come true to play in front of my hometown fans here, going to school here.

I have some good memories on this golf course, coming out to watch this tournament. “I’m pleased to be playing in it, and even more happy to win it”. Kisner paid tribute to Scheffler in defeat, saying "He's playing incredible golf.

I knew I needed my best – just couldn't get my putter to cooperate." Although Scheffler has been on the PGA Tour for almost two years, he only began winning championships this year. Although his game plan has remained almost the same, a small change with his equipment may be the main reason Scheffler started winning.

Changed his putter Scheffler had been using the same Scotty Cameron Tour Rat 1 prototype putter before 2022. After experimenting with the Scotty Cameron Newport 2 Timeless putter at home, the golfer thought it was time to change his old putter.

Although he liked the Newport 2 Timeless putter, he wanted something different. Thus, he went to Scottie Cameron Putter Studio to get himself a custom-made Titleist putter. He used both his old Rat 1 and the Newport 2 putters’ features on his new putter, which he thought suited him the most.

He couldn’t start the new season with his new putter as it is custom-made and took longer than expected to be made. Finally, the golfer got his new Cameron Special Select Timeless Tourtype GSS prototype putter just a week before the WM Phoenix Open.

After playing on the tour for almost two years now, he began to win as soon as he changed his putter. Until now, the golfer has earned $6.173m since his putter change.
