Who Is Scottie Scheffler's Wife?

Scottie Scheffler was named the PGA Tour Rookie of the Year in 2020. During that season he finished tied for fourth at the PGA Championship and shot a 12-under 59 at The Northern Trust. Since then his career has had a meteoric rise, winning three times in 2022 at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, Arnold Palmer Invitational, and WGC-Dell Technologies Matchplay. As a result he got to world number one. 

As well as these successes, Scheffler also married his girlfriend of six-years Meredith Scudder in 2020. Get to know her here.

Who Is Scottie Scheffler's Wife?

The pair both grew up in Texas, with Scottie attending Highland Park High School, where he would meet and date Scudder. However, as the pair set themselves up for University, Scheffler would be attending the University of Texas, whilst Scudder would be attending the rival University of Texas A&M.

Despite the rivalry, Scheffler would often visit his girlfriend on the TAMU campus, with the couple both graduating in 2018. Whilst at University, Scudder had a brief internship in Zambia. Despite the long-distance, the couple remained together and, in June 2020, Scheffler popped the question to Scudder whilst out on a hike at the Arbor Hills Nature Preserve.

Posting on Instagram, Scudder said: “YES! I can’t believe God gave me my best friend to spend the rest of my life with, can’t wait to be your wife, Scottie!!!! Blown away at the Lord’s faithfulness and goodness to us. [LET’S] DO THIS!!”

One particular story we heard about relating to Scheffler and Scudder, came whilst Scheffler was preparing for the Sentry Tournament of Champions. He cracked his Nike VR Pro Ltd 3-wood, a club that the American owned and used since high school!

With Nike no longer in the club manufacturing market, Scheffler wasn't able to attain a new one in time for the tournaments start in two days. Therefore the American reached out to Scudder who promptly brought 10 potential 3-woods to Royal Oaks Country Club. 

In recent times Scudder has been in attendance at several of Scheffler's successes including all his PGA Tour wins.

Matt studied Sports Journalism at Southampton Solent University, graduating in 2019. Now a freelance writer for Golf Monthly and the PGA, he covers all aspects of the game, from Tour news to equipment testing and buyers’ guides. Taking up the game at the age of six, Matt currently holds a handicap of 3 and despite not having a hole in one…yet, he has had two albatrosses. His favourite player is Rory McIlroy, despite nearly being struck by his second shot at the 17th during the 2015 BMW PGA Championship.
