How much money would you have made betting on Scottie Scheffler to win each time he plays?

Bettors backing him to win each time out since the start of the 2021-22 PGA Tour season would have turned an immense profit.

Here's a look at the numbers. 

If you had wagered $100 on Scheffler to win before each of his last 61 PGA Tour starts going back to the start of the 2021-22 season, you would be up $5,243.30.

That presents an 85.95% return on the $6,100 total wagered during that period. 

Scheffler has won 11 times during that span. Those victories include two at Augusta National in the Masters and a pair of wins in the THE PLAYERS Championship. THE PLAYERS is considered pro golf’s unofficial fifth major. 

Almost as impressive, Scheffler has finished second or tied for second 8 times. And he’s finished in the Top 10 in 40 of those 61 starts. Or 65.5% of the time. 

Scheffler tees off Thursday in Round 1 of the U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2 on Thursday at 1:14 p.m. He's paired with Xander Schauffele and Rory McIlroy

Here is a breakdown of Scheffler’s 11 PGA Tour event victories, with the date, tournament, and his odds to win before Round 1.

How Does Backing Scheffler Compare To Other Investments
 

The return on backing Scheffler each week he as played from October 11, 2021 through June 10, 2024 outpaces the return on many of the major stock indexes, in addition to the price of gold, silver, and Bitcoin.

October 11, 2021 was the first trading day after Scheffler missed the cut in the 2021 Shriners Children's Open. And Monday (June 10, 2024) was the first trading day after Scheffler won the 2024 Memorial last week. 

Here is a breakdown of where those major market indicators stood at the start of the 2021-22 PGA Tour season, where they stood as of Monday, and the percentage of your potential return compared to that of backing Scheffler over the same period.

Scheffler Gets Tiger-Like U.S. Open Odds

Oddsmakers at FanDuel, Fanatics, and DraftKings have Scheffler at +300 to win the U.S. Open at Pinehurst next week. He’s getting +333 at BetMGM, but sits +290 at ESPN Bet, and +250 at Caesars Sportsbook

As always, shop around for the best price. 

Scheffler’s price is the lowest of any U.S. Open player since Tiger Woods went off at +300 ahead of the 2009 national golf championship at Bethpage Black. Tiger opened that event with a 74 and rallied for a T6 finish. 

The action on Scheffler has been "similar to Tiger but in a smaller scale," SuperBook Sports VP of Risk Jeff Sherman told bookies.com. "His short odds have caused other golfers odds to escalate, but we used to get extremely large wagers on Tiger at even shorter odds. We see decent size wagers on Scottie but not in the neighborhood of Tiger." 

Scheffler followed a similar path this year as Woods did get to that 2009 U.S. Open. Woods finished first in the Arnold Palmer Invitational and Memorial in 2009. Scheffler has won both of these events this year. 

Scheffler was arrested and briefly detained by Louisville, Kentucky, police before the second round of the PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club. Unrattled, Scheffler carded a T8 finish. 

The value on Scheffler has long evaporated. He was +1800 before winning the 2022 Masters. He was a negative money favorite at -120 before his win at Augusta this past April. Scheffler dominated that field in winning by 4 shots.

Scheffler’s numbers reflect his dominance on the course. He’s unflappable no matter the situation – as reflected by his performance at Valhalla Golf Club. 

Scheffler rolled through the Masters field this year with the potential birth of his first child as a potential storyline. Scheffler made it clear he would leave Augusta and return to Dallas to be with his wife if she went into labor. 

He makes it look easy. Even though we know it isn’t. 

“I felt like I was battling the whole week,” Scheffler said after winning at Augusta. “It was a long week. I had to battle some ups and downs. And, you know, I’m very fortunate to be sitting here with you.”

At 27, Scheffler is in his athletic prime, if not his betting prime. 

Woods received a “Special Exemption” for the U.S. Open this year. Woods has won it three times. This year, Tiger is 125-1 to win, his longest pre-tournament U.S. Open odds ever.
