Scottie Scheffler claims sixth PGA (PGA)

Scottie Scheffler reclaimed his spot in the winner’s circle on Sunday, outdueling Tom Kim in a thrilling one-hole playoff to capture the Travelers Championship and his sixth PGA TOUR victory of the season. Kim forced the playoff with a clutch birdie on the 18th hole, but Scheffler’s steady nerves and skill finally prevailed.

Scheffler’s triumph marked a triumphant return to form after a disappointing performance at the U.S. Open, where he finished tied for 41st. His last win came at the Memorial Tournament in June, where he edged out Collin Morikawa by a single stroke.

With this victory, Scheffler joins an elite group of golfers, becoming the first player since Tiger Woods in 2009 to record six or more wins in a single season. He also becomes the first player since Arnold Palmer in 1962 to achieve six wins before July, a testament to his remarkable talent and dedication.

Scheffler’s reaction to his win was characteristically humble and gracious, praising Kim’s tenacity and skill. “Tom played his heart out today,” Scheffler said, cradling his six-week-old son, Bennett. “He’s a great player, great champion, it was fun battling with him today.”

As he hoisted the trophy aloft, Scheffler beamed with pride, acknowledging the importance of his achievement. “It’s pretty special,” he said. “It’s been a great season, I’ve been fortunate to come away with some wins, and it’s been a lot of fun.” With this win, Scheffler cements his status as one of the golf world’s brightest stars, and his future looks brighter than ever.
