Scottie Scheffler Eagles Southern Hills' Massive 665-Yard Fifth Hole at PGA Championship
Scottie Scheffler entered the 2022 PGA Championship as the only person with an opportunity to win the Grand Slam in men’s golf in 2022. The World No. 1 and Masters Champion played in an afternoon feature group at Southern Hills that put him alongside Jon Rahm and Collin Morikawa. A group of the top three players in the world had the place buzzing.
Considering the circumstance, it would’ve been easy for Scheffler, 25, to be overlooked; Rahm displays brute power and force while Morikawa is widely considered the best iron player in the game. But Scheffler has proved that he’s great at everything, hence the No. 1 ranking.
Scheffler made the first impressive move of the bunch Thursday when he overpowered the beast of a par-5 fifth hole that played 665 yards. It was no match for Scheffler.
After a 348-yard drive, Scheffler took a massive swipe with a 3-wood from 308 yards. The ball landed short, took a couple small bounces and rolled onto the green, ending just 10 feet from the hole. Scheffler paid off the impressive shot by making the putt for eagle.
