Scottie Scheffler chasing another title at Travelers

After snapping his streak of 11 straight top-10 finishes, Scottie Scheffler looks to return to the top of the leaderboard this week at the Travelers Championship in Cromwell, Conn.

The World No. 1 tied for 41st place and finished 14 strokes behind U.S. Open winner Bryson DeChambeau last week at Pinehurst, N.C. His top-10 streak began at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am from Feb. 1-3 and included a Masters championship and four other wins.

“Just a long week,” Scheffler said of his result at Pinehurst No. 2. “I didn’t have my best stuff and that’s a pretty difficult golf course to try and make a lot of birdies and play some good golf around when you don’t have your best stuff.”

Scheffler spoke with reporters on Wednesday at TPC River Highlands, where he is making his fifth career start and coming off a T4 finish in 2023.

After putting together 41 straight rounds at par or better this season, Scheffler arrives at the Travelers on a streak of five straight rounds over par.

“Well I didn’t really think about it very much when I was shooting under par, so I’m probably not going to think about it too much when I’m shooting over par,” he said. “Just one of those deals. Like, I was playing good and I was able to survive kind of the harder golf courses.

“… It’s just kind of those weird little stats. Like, I think I shot over par a couple times at Colonial and I finished second. So it’s not like, you know, I played that bad and shot over par. It’s kind of one of those deals that just out of sight, out of mind.”

Likewise, Scheffler said he wasn’t too concerned about the high temperatures expected this weekend in Connecticut.

“As far as the heat goes, I’m from Texas so it’s actually cold up here to me,” he said. “I was a little chilly this morning when I got out there on the course.”

Scheffler’s not-so-secret weapon this week is caddie Ted Scott, who was on the bag for Bubba Watson when he won the Travelers in 2010, 2015 and 2018.

“This is a golf course that he’s had a lot of success on, so if there’s a difference of opinion I’m probably going to lean towards him a little bit more than myself, just because I haven’t had the success on this golf course specifically,” Scheffler said.
