The Huge Sum Scottie Scheffler’s Caddie Has Earned In Two Weeks

The Huge Sum Scottie Scheffler’s Caddie Has Earned In Two Weeks

Scottie Scheffler overcame a neck injury to win his second PGA Tour event in a row at The Players Championship.

That bagged the World No.1 a first prize of $4.5m to add to the $4m he claimed for his win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational the previous week. However, Scheffler’s caddie Ted Scott will also have benefitted very well financially from his two victories.

Caddies typically earn 10% of a player’s winning prize money and, assuming that is the case for Scott, Scheffler’s two victories will have seen Scott’s bank balance swell by $850,000 in the last two weeks alone.

Amazingly, that figure is also more than Rory McIlroy’s earnings on the PGA Tour so far this year. The four-time Major winner, who is currently ranked second in the world behind Scheffler, has earnings of $798,205 from his five PGA Tour appearances so far this year – over $50,000 less than Scott’s earnings in March so far. Scott’s earnings over the last two tournaments are also more than the Tour average for the year so far of $773,049.

Of course, Scott will also have taken home good money from Scheffler’s other PGA Tour appearances since the turn of the year. Before his back-to-back victories, the American had made five starts with top-10 finishes in four of them.
