SEPTEMBER 14, 2022

HOUSTON, Texas - PGA star Scottie Scheffler, the current No. 1-ranked player in the Official World Golf Ranking, 2022 PGA TOUR Player of the Year and winner of the 2022 Masters Tournament is committed to play in the 2022 Cadence Bank Houston Open.

 

The 2022 Cadence Bank Houston Open is set for November 10-13 at Memorial Park Golf Course in Houston.

 

2022 will mark the fourth time in Scheffler’s career that he has played in the Houston Open. In 2021, Scheffler finished tied for second after holding the outright 54-hole lead at the Hewlett Packard Enterprise Houston Open. Other finishes include tying for 32nd at one-under in 2020 and tying for 28th at five-under in 2019.

 

Scheffler tallied four first places finishes in the 2021-22 season, none bigger than winning the 2022 Masters Tournament, finishing 10-under in his first Major win. He also had three other first place finishes last season, winning the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play, Arnold Palmer Invitational Presented by Mastercard and WM Phoenix Open. Overall, he recorded his first four PGA TOUR titles in a span of six starts, becoming the first player to do so since Jason Day during the 2014-15 season. Only Tiger Woods (eight times) had previously won four times, including a major and a WGC, in the same season. The 26-year-old was named the 2022 PGA TOUR Player of the Year as voted on by the TOUR's membership for the 2021-22 season.

 

The native Texan also finished the 2021-22 season on a high note, finishing in the top three in his last two tournaments of the year as he tied for third at the BMW Championship and tied for second at the TOUR Championship. In his best season on the TOUR, he collected 11 top 10 finishes and finished second in the FEDEX Cup standings after leading the standings for 24 weeks.

 

Scheffler has advanced to the TOUR Championship all three years on the TOUR, being just one of two rookies to advance to the Championship in the 2020 season, finishing his rookie year No. 5 in the FedExCup standings. In 2021, he earned his first runner-up of his career at the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play and finished ranked 22nd in the FedExCup standings. He also made his first Ryder Cup appearance, helping the United States to win the 43rd Ryder Cup.

 

In three seasons on the TOUR, Scheffler has made the cut in 69 of 88 events played, finishing in the top 25 in 49 of those events, with 26 top-10 finishes and 13 top-three finishes.
