Scottie Scheffler has ascended to the top of the golf world in record time — and he’s just getting started.

After winning three events and hitting OWGR’s No. 1 spot in 42 days — the shortest period of time between a first career win and attaining the top ranking — Scheffler won the Masters on Sunday, finishing 10 strokes under par.

The 25-year-old’s impressive on-course performances have sparked an equally meteoric rise in earnings.

  • Prior to 2022, Scheffler had earned $8.7M in his career.
  • After adding $2.7M from Sunday’s win, Scheffler has earned $10.1M since the start of the PGA Tour season — already the sixth-most ever in a single Tour season.
  • He’s won $8.6M just from the four wins in his last six starts.
  • Forbes estimates that Scheffler has made $6M from endorsement deals with Nike, TaylorMade, and Titleist — among others — in the last year.

Between the endorsements he’s likely to add following his triumph at Augusta and the remaining event schedule, 2022 could be a watershed financial year for Scheffler.

Four of the top five tournaments with the biggest purses have yet to be played, with the largest ever first-prize reward — $17.5 million — for the season-long FedEx Cup, which he leads by a massive 1,236 points.

Before that, Scheffler will set his sights on his second career major: He has the second-best odds (+1200) to win the PGA Championship, which starts May 19 in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
