Scheffler didn't exactly impress last season, considering he faced a lot of challenges. He tried to stay calm, believing that changes had to come. It turned out that his patience paid off. Scheffler emphasized that he tried to block out the noise that came week after week. He didn't intend to give direct responses to fans, but he knew there would come a moment when he would show his best. He succeeded in doing so this time.

“I tried to do my best to block out the noise, but it was tough coming in here every week and having to answer questions about my putting. It's like, listen guys, I'm doing the best I can, I promise,” Scheffler said, as quoted by PGA Tour.

“I wouldn't trade those weeks that I had back or the year I had last year, just because I felt like I learned a lot about myself and what makes me tick and I think it made me a better player today. A lot of the challenges in this game, I think, can only toughen me up.”-said Scheffler.

Ted Scott, Scheffler's longtime caddie, couldn't hide his delight at Scheffler's recent performances, particularly in light of the challenges he had faced in the weeks prior. The passing of Grayson Murray, a fellow golfer and friend, hit Scheffler hard, and the subsequent legal issues only added to the weight on his shoulders. However, true to his resilient nature, the 27-year-old swiftly pushed through this, returning to the winner's path.

With each swing of the club, Scheffler seemed to assert his dominance on the course. It became increasingly evident that Scheffler was in a league of his own.

“I don't know how he does it. With what happened at Louisville and then the tragedy with Grayson, that really affected him a lot. So yeah, it's been a whirlwind of emotions for the last month, but sometimes it's probably a safe place to go, you get in contention and you’re just focused on what you’re trying to do and can get away from the noise.”-Scheffler’s caddie Ted Scott said.

Scheffler emphasized after the tournament's conclusion that he made many mistakes, but he did enough to secure the victory. The American stresses the course was challenging, but he managed to withstand everything and achieve the win. The most cherished victories are those that require more effort than before. The American is aware that he is far ahead of his competition at the moment, and it's truly incredible that someone can play with such feeling and composure.

"I didn't do a whole lot well but I did enough to get it done," said Scheffler, as quoted by BBC.

"I feel like I've had some close calls in this tournament. The golf course was playing so tough, firm and fast - 16, 17 and 18 were brutal.

But it was a fun test of golf, I like it when it gets hard."

Collin Morikawa was close, waiting for his chance, but in the end, he finished second. Morikawa was aware that he would have a tough task against a player of Scheffler's caliber.

Scottie Scheffler has shown immense mental strength when it was most needed. There are many aspects of his game that make him different from his peers. The American seems to have a new mindset this year, not fearing anyone and focusing on the game. He looks unstoppable, and probably that mentality will make his job easier in the future. Scheffler will aim for the Majors again, ready to win them. Looking at his current form and qualities, he shouldn't have any problems, although the competition is tough.
