Scottie Scheffler wins RBC Heritage to follow up Masters glory with ANOTHER $3.6m purse while he awaits birth of his first child… world No 1 has now earned $18.6m this season – more than double any of his PGA Tour rivals

Scottie Scheffler secured a three-shot victory at the rain-delayed RBC Heritage on Monday to continue a dominant streak not seen since the best of Tiger Woods.

The world No 1 has now won four of his last five tournaments – including at The Masters earlier this month – with the only blip in that remarkable run coming at the Texas Children’s Houston Open, when he finished tied second. 

Scheffler led by five shots when the rain stopped Sunday’s final round in South Carolina. 

He had three holes to negotiate on Monday in order to collect another $3.6million before heading home to his wife Meredith, who is due to give birth to their first child in the coming days.

Scheffler has now pocketed $18.69million this season – more than double the next highest earner, Wyndham Clark. The US Open champion finished third at RBC Heritage to take home $1.36m.

Scheffler has won four of his 10 events on the PGA Tour this season. He has finished in the top 10 in all but one of those tournaments. No other player has earned more than one victory.
