The American professional golfer, Scott Alexander Scheffler is currently the world number one with a $50 million net worth as of 2023. He is regarded as one of the best golfers of all time. He is also the man who turned pro back in 2018 and 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.



Scheffler has amassed most of his wealth from his golfing career, during which he won the Waste Management Phoenix Open which got him more than $1.4 million against Patrick Cantlay. He also got a cash prize of $2.1 million after winning the PGA Tours "2022 Arnold Palmer Invitational." Scheffler then went on to win another cash prize of $1.4 million for the “WM Phoenix Open” last year and before that $528,000 for winning the PGA Championship in 2020.

Scheffler received $2 million for winning the WGC-Dell Technologies game, which carried his total earnings beyond the $56 million mark, and that includes $37 million from official tournaments.

One of the major qualities that helped him stay relevant in the world of Golf is his consistency. Scheffler is a reliable and very strong putter, which Golf experts say is extremely crucial when it comes to winning on the PGA tour. Apart from this, he also had a brand deal with TaylorMade and is sponsored by Nike and Vokey Wedges.

Scottie Scheffler's earnings

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.

Scheffler walks home with a payout of around $1.5 Million every year including tournament prize money and endorsement paychecks. He added more than $29 million to his wealth by winning four tournaments in 2022 and had already won more than $12 million from two tournaments in 2023 till the month of May.

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 who 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.

He has signed many deals with popular brands like TaylorMade, a company that makes golf clubs,  Nike, who is the official sponsor of his apparel and shoes, Rolex who has appointed him as their brand ambassador, NetJets and Variety Community Bank.
