Scottie Scheffler has taken the golf world by storm in 2022. The 25-year-old from Highland Park secured his third PGA Tour victory of the young season at the WGC Dell Match Play. He took down veteran Kevin Kisner four and three in the championship round at Austin Country Club.

The win moved Scheffler into the top spot in the Offical World Golf Rankings. He moved in front of major winners, Jon Rahm and Collin Morikawa to claim the throne.

It took Scheffler just 91 tour starts to earn the world’s No. 1 ranking. Only Tiger Woods (21) and fellow Longhorn Jordan Speith (77) accomplished the feat faster.

Scheffler played four seasons in a spectacular career at the University of Texas before turning pro in 2018. He is now the next Texas Longhorn holding the world’s No. 1 ranking.
