Travelers win puts him 5th all-time PGA Tour

Travelers win puts him 5th all-time PGA Tour

Scottie Scheffler earned his 12th PGA Tour win Sunday at the 2024 Travelers Championship, his sixth just this season. In a quirk of scheduling or timing or both, it’s his second victory after the month of April in his career.

Regardless, a win is a win is a win, and Scheffler now has six this year, the first to win that many times in one season since Tiger Woods 15 years ago.

What’s more, it’s yet another signature event victory, which means elevated first-place cash. This Travelers win was good for $3.6 million and brings his career on-course earnings on the PGA Tour to $70,262,087.

His win in April at the Masters moved him into 10th all-time. Two weeks ago at the Memorial, his victory has leapfrogged him past Justin Rose and Adam Scott into the No. 7 slot. Now, he’s No. 5 all-time in career money earned on Tour.

His 12 wins include two Masters, two Players (the richest event on the PGA Tour), two Arnold Palmer Invitationals, two WM Phoenix Opens (one of which was a signature event) as well as a Match Play, an RBC Heritage, a Memorial and now a Travelers.

It’s the third consecutive season that Scheffler set the record for most official money ($14,046,910 in 2021-22; $21,014,342 in 2022-23).
