What golfers said about Scottie Scheffler’s arrest

“I was probably starting to come into the club around 5:05, 5:10, so I guess I got there right after all the police cars got there. I had no idea what was going on. I knew they weren’t letting anybody through from that side I was arriving from, so I had to turn around, go north of the course, took an extra 20 minutes or so, and then I got to turn into the club.

“But it’s dark, it’s raining, police lights everywhere. It was very strange coming into the course this morning. Not the normal quiet arrival.

“Obviously got here this morning, then news broke that Scottie had been detained and all that. We had no idea what was going on. That could have been any one of us. We’re all taking that same route coming into the club.

“Very unfortunate. You never want to hear about a person losing their life coming to the course. It’s just terrible. We’re out here playing a golf tournament, and somebody just got killed outside the entrance, which is very unfortunate, and our heart goes out to that family.

“Again, you’ve got to kind of refocus and get ready to play some golf because this is the PGA Championship. This is what a lot of us have been working for for a long time, and you’ve got to focus and got to play some golf.”

Q: How difficult is it to focus when all of that is going on?

“It was really difficult this morning because we didn’t really know what time we were teeing off. I had pretty much gone through my whole warmup in the physio room, and then there was the delay, the hour delay, and they kept pushing it back.

“You kind of take it all in, and talking amongst all the players and caddies and physios and our little bubble in there, and it’s just wild. Turn on ESPN and seeing Scottie in handcuffs, getting in a police car, I never would have thought I would have seen that this morning. It was just wild.

“But again, you had to lock in, had to get ready, got my rain stuff on and ready to play.”
