From the Green Jacket to green dollar bills, Scottie Scheffler's breakthrough 2022 season continues to go from strength to strength after his recent Masters success added another $2.7 million to his ever growing bank balance. In this video, we look at some of the perks of winning the Masters.
The 25-year old entered the 2022 calendar year without a win and 11th in the Official World Golf Ranking. The Texan broke through with his first PGA Tour victory in February at the WM Phoenix Open and followed that up with a win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.
A disappointing Players Championship in blustery conditions ensued but he captured his first World Golf Championship at the Dell-Technologies Match Play and added his maiden Major title at the Masters to his resume. In the process, pocketing a hefty $10,098,014. It pays, quite literally, to be good at golf.
Scheffler's performances this year have catapulted him to the top of the Official World Golf Ranking, the FedEx Cup standings and the official money list. His earnings so far have surpassed that of Jon Rahm; who led the money list in 2021 with $7,705,933. What is perhaps most impressive is that Scheffler still has twenty PGA Tour starts available to him this year.
The newly-crowned Masters champion recently teamed up with Bubba Watson's former looper, Ted Scott. The American split with Watson in the off-season last year and thought his days caddying out on the PGA Tour may be behind him, but that was before Scheffler called him up. Scott has now been on the bag for three Masters victories - Scheffler this year as well as Watson in 2012 and 2014. Assuming Scott receives 10% for his services, it would place him 77th on the PGA Tour money list, between Dough Ghim and CT Pan.
Jordan Spieth currently holds the record for the most money won in a single season when, in 2015, he won both the Masters and US Open alongside the Valspar Championship, John Deere Classic, the Tour Championship and the season long FedEx Cup, pocketing an astonishing $12,030,465 along the way. Scheffler now has this figure firmly in his sights.
