Scottie Scheffler

Scottie Scheffler was born in the town of Ridgewood, in the state of New Jersey, on June 21, 1996 into a wealthy family, the son of Scott and Diane Scheffler. He became passionate about the world of golf as a child, playing at the city's Highland Park.

At the age of seven he moved with his family to Dallas. He made his professional debut in 2019.
