The American professional golfer's official net worth is $50 million as per Celebrity Net Worth. The man who turned pro back in 2018 has been named the world's top golfer thrice in his career. Scheffler was one of the few players who infamously turned down a massive paycheck of $150 million only to join the rival team.

He stands to benefit from the PGA Tour's merger with Saudi Arabia-backed LIV Golf after the rivals battled for more than a year to become the world's top league. Scheffler, who has played at 18 events in the PGA Tour season and earned close to $18.5 million, has become the league's first golfer to earn $1 million per tournament.

He even set the record for most earnings in a single season of gold back in 2022. Scheffler is also the No. 1 player in the world that has not missed a single cut and finished in the top 15 in every tournament he played, as per Celebrity Net Worth.

Explaining his decision to stay with PGA, Scheffler said that he never really dreamed about playing for this much money. He said he didn't know how much he made in a year, but it was too much for hitting a white ball around.
