Always at his side! Scottie SchefflerHe gave credit to his wife Meredith SchefflerThroughout his golf career.
The professional athlete and his future spouse met as teenagers at Texas’ Highland Park High School. Meredith continued cheering for Scottie throughout Scottie’s rise to fame and the pair exchanged vows.
Meredith, her husband, caddied for Meredith during the Par 3 Contest at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta (Georgia) in April 2022.
“First timers at the Par 3 & it definitely lived up to the hype. Mere is still working on cleaning the grooves …” he captioned a series of photos from the event via Instagram at the time.
Although the Par 3 Contest was not the most exciting part 2022 Masters Week, it was certainly the most entertaining. Scottie won his green jacket after winning the tournament. He was leading going into the final round. However the golfer said that he felt anxious on April 10, 2022. Meredith was praised for their faith and helped him pull through.
“So for me, my identity isn’t a golf score. Like Meredith told me this morning, ‘If you win this golf tournament today, if you lose this golf tournament by 10 shots, if you never win another golf tournament again’ — she goes, ‘I’m still going to love you, you’re still going to be the same person, Jesus loves you and nothing changes,’” Scottie told reporters after he won the 2022 Masters. “All I’m trying to do is glorify God and that’s why I’m here and that’s why I’m in position. So for me, it’s not about a golf score.”
He added that Meredith’s pep talk “100 percent” makes him less on edge. “I have such a great support system, and I’m so blessed,” he said through tears during another moment in the celebration. “I’m so thankful for the sacrifices my support system has had for me in my lifetime, and I’m so glad we could enjoy this moment together.”
