Scottie was excellent at closing tournaments in the first half of 2022 but his record prior and record since is mixed. His Golf Betting Club Pressure Performance Rating is set at ⭐⭐⭐.

March 2023
❌ In second position and one stroke behind Kurt Kitayama at the Arnold Palmer Invitational going into the final round.  Bogeyed the last hole from the fairway and would finish 4th.

February 2023
✅Successfully defended his Phoenix Open title when leading after 54 holes.

December 2022

August 2022
❌ Started the final round of the Tour Championship 6 shots ahead and shot 73 to lose by 1 shot. Looked out of sorts all round.

May 2022

Significant Quotes

Sentry Tournament of Champions 2023
I think major championships set up well for me. I like the aspects of those tournaments where they're very challenging. I kind of like the grind of those tournaments where a par is a great score, where the easier golf courses, I don't think mentally I get as excited. For me, the majors are kind of exciting because you feel like you're going into a boxing match. You're going in to really fight the golf course and stuff like that, and those are really fun.
