If Scottie Scheffler wins this week's FedEx Cup playoff at East Lake, he can finally afford that new car. You see, Scheffler is great at driving an old SUV that has 200,000 miles on it.
Even though he's in such a financial situation that he obviously could have traded in the vehicle a long time ago,
maybe the last straw will be another $18 million in his bank account capping off the richest single season in the history of PGA Tour.
"When I'm home, I go to the golf course, I go to where I practice, and then when we go out to dinner, it's probably no more than 5 minutes from my house,
" Scheffler said. weeks ago. "We usually take [my wife's] car because she doesn't want to drive mine.It would definitely add to the story around the car,
but I don't really drive much when I'm home."
It's a humorous nod to how much dough Scheffler has made in this breakout season,
in which he's held onto the world's No. 1 ranking for 22 consecutive weeks.
Scheffler, who has earned just over $14 million this season,
previously reset the regular-season record for the most money earned by a player before the FedEx Cup Playoffs, eclipsing Jordan Spieth's 2015 campaign ($12 million).
