Scottie Scheffler of the U.S., the world’s No. 1 player in men’s golf, will delay his court appearance and participate in the PGA Tour tournament this week.

Scheffler is aiming for his fifth victory in the Charles Schwab Challenge (total prize money of 9.1 million U.S. dollars) of the PGA Tour, which will take place at Colonial Country Club (par 70, 7,289 yards) in Fort Worth, Texas for four days from Monday. He has won four games including the first major tournament of the season, the Masters Tournament, and the Fifth Major Players Championship, and is dominating in all categories including prize money and FedEx Cup ranking, but is going ahead with his original schedule without a break.
Scheffler was arrested and released for a while on charges of attempting to enter the golf course in violation of police instructions while driving a car at a time when on-site traffic was blocked due to an accident in which a volunteer was hit and killed by a shuttle bus in the early morning of the second round of the 106th PGA Championship. Scheffler was charged with “second-degree police assault” that injured a police officer blocking him in the process, and “third-degree criminal act,” disobedience and signal violation, and radical driving, but the judge’s decision pushed it back to the 3rd of next month.

In the second round on the day of the accident, Scheffler continued to play 5-under 66, but he shot 2-over 73 to stop under par for 41 consecutive rounds next month and ended up tying for eighth, failing to achieve his goal of winning two consecutive major tournaments. Fans’ expectations that if Scheffler continues to keep momentum, he could win four major tournaments this year have been dashed amid unexpected negative developments. Enthusiastic fans are criticizing Louisville police for over-reacting by arresting the world’s No. 1 player and taking mug shots.

The Charles Schwab Challenge is a regular competition with 20 million U.S. dollars in total prize money and 70 players without cutouts, so not many top-notch players participate. However, Scheffler, a Texas golf star who grew up in Texas and learned golf from the age of six, made plans to participate in the competition near his Dallas home and join his home fans.

At the PGA Championship last week, he played in a T-shirt that asked him to “unleash Scheffler (for innocence)” amid fans’ cheering, and is expected to compete for the title this week with even greater support.메이저사이트

Collin Morikawa, ranking ninth in the world, tied for fourth in the PGA Championship, Max Homa, ranking 10th, Brian Harman, ranking 11th, and Jordan Spieth of Texas (25th, USA) will compete with Scheffler for the title. Korean players will be Kim Joo-hyung, ranking 26th in the world, and Lim Sung-jae, Kim Si-woo, Lee Kyung-hoon and Kim Sung-hyun, who have done well in the PGA Championship by tying for 26th.
