Scottie Scheffler on another planet to Rory McIlroy as golf star left red-faced

Scottie Scheffler ‘s dominance on the course is hammered home by his mind-blowing lead over Rory McIlroy in the world rankings.

Golf ‘s No.1 claimed his latest victory at the Memorial Tournament at the weekend, edging out Colin Morikawa (-7) on eight under. It’s his fifth win of the PGA Tour season so far from just eight events.

It’s extended his staggering lead at the top of the Official World Golf Ranking. His total points are now 754.78093, with second-placed Xander Schauffele on 375.32636 and McIlroy following in third despite having more on 381.53462, as the rankings are based on average points and he’s played four more events.

The gap between Scheffler and McIlroy is 373.24630 points, which put into context is only just beaten by the difference between the latter and world No.559 Harry Hillier, who’s on 8.17870 overall points.

Scottie Scheffler claims first PGA Tour win since arrest and shows how much it means
The Masters champion set another single-season PGA Tour earnings record with his triumph at Jack Nicklaus’ Memorial event. Claiming the $4million (£3.1m) top prize has taken his total for the year to $24,024,553 (£18.9m).

That’s beaten out his previous records from both 2022 ($14,046,910) and 2023 ($21,014,342). Scheffler has finished lower than T10 only once all season, all while becoming a father for the first time and getting controversially arrested at the PGA Championship last month.

At just 27 years old, he’s now up to seventh on the PGA Tour’s all-time money list, with his career earnings reaching $66,589,782 (£52.4m). And he’s showing no sign of slowing down any time soon either.
