Scottie Scheffler: Tiger Woods is here so nobody really remembers that I'm here

The PGA Championship will be a big challenge for most players and they are aware of how important this competition is. Scottie Scheffler thinks that the pressure on him is not so great, considering that Tiger Woods is in the tournament.

"Tiger's here so nobody really remembers that I'm here, so it's all good," Scheffler said for skysports. "I don't feel any different. I don't get any extra shots this week.
"It's nice to have the ranking, but at the end of the day when I show up at a tournament, I don't have any advantages over the field other than we all start even par.

For me, it's a tremendous honour, but at the end of the day when I show up to a tournament, I'm starting at even."

Scottie Scheffler on the pressure

Scottie Scheffler does not want to pay too much attention to the pressure of the media and others, given that he has his own goals and is ready for the biggest tournaments.

He has shown maturity many times. "Living in the moment is usually what works best for me. I don't want to get too high or too low. If you guys [the media] are really building me up then I may not prepare as hard because I show up thinking I'm the guy, I'm the man and no-one can touch me.

"That doesn't work for me and if I show up too low and you guys are saying 'Scottie doesn't have it, he's not any good any more', I'm going to show up and maybe prepare too hard and I'm not going to get enough rest.

"For me, staying in my own lane and doing my own thing is what works best. I've really just performed my best when I've kept my head down and not really paid attention to anything else."
