AUSTIN (KXAN) — Former Texas Longhorns golfer Scottie Scheffler is back to defend his WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play championship as the No. 1 seed in the tournament that begins Wednesday at Austin Country Club.

Scheffler leads a star-studded group of professional golfers in the final year of the event being on the PGA Tour schedule. In two appearances at the tournament, Scheffler has advanced to the championship match both times, beating Kevin Kisner last year to win the title and finishing runner-up to Billy Horschel in 2021. He’s currently No. 1 in the World Golf Rankings and is coming off a win at The Players Championship.

Nine of the top 10 players in the World Golf Rankings will appear at the tournament with No. 10 Justin Thomas as the lone top-10 player not coming to Austin. Jon Rahm, Rory McIlroy, Patrick Cantlay, Max Homa, Xander Schauffele, Will Zalatoris and Victor Hovland are all in the tournament, along with Collin Morikawa, Tony Finau and another former Texas Longhorn in Jordan Spieth.

Jordan Uppleger, the tournament’s executive director, announced March 6 that this would be the last year for the tournament on the PGA schedule. This is the last year of the contract between the tournament and PGA, and as the PGA modifies its schedule for 2024 as a result of Saudi Arabia-backed LIV Golf, the tournament just didn’t fit with the PGA’s future plans.

PGA commissioner Jay Monahan didn’t rule out the return of some kind of match play event in the future during a press conference at The Players Championship, but he didn’t give a timetable on when it could be part of the tour’s schedule.

However, the PGA Tour increased the purse size of the tournament to $20 million , up from $12 million last year.

The field of 64 players is seeded using the Official World Golf Rankings and then organized into 16 groups of four players. For the first three days of the tournament, Wednesday-Friday, golfers play an 18-hole match per day against another player in their group. A win gets them a full point, a tie is half a point and no points are awarded for a loss. The golfer with the most points after everyone has played each other moves on to the Round of 16.

From there, it’s normal match play scoring with the Round of 16 Saturday morning, and the quarterfinals Saturday afternoon. The semifinals are Sunday morning with the championship and consolation matches concluding the tournament Sunday afternoon.

The top 16 seeds headline each group with Scheffler at the top. Here are the groups for pool play Wednesday-Friday:

  • Scottie Scheffler (1)
  • Tom Kim (17)
  • Alex Noren (38)
  • Davis Riley (54)

Austin Eckroat gets 1st PGA Tour victory at Cognizant Classic

  • Associated Press

Copy Link

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. -- Austin Eckroat waited a long time to become a winner on the PGA Tour. Another day didn't hurt.

Eckroat got the first victory of his tour career Monday, topping Erik van Rooyen and Min Woo Lee by 3 shots to win the weather-delayed Cognizant Classic. Among his prizes: $1.62 million -- by far his biggest golf payday -- along with tour status for two years and a trip to the Masters for the first time.

Eckroat shot a final round of 4-under 67, finishing at 17-under 267.

He said he was nervous Monday. He hid it well, never giving up the lead.

"This has always been my dream, to win on the PGA Tour," Eckroat told Golf Channel. "And just to win, I haven't won since 2019 -- it was a college event. It's just been so long. I'm just so happy."

He left PGA National on Sunday night when darkness stopped play with a 1-stroke lead and was never caught. Back-to-back birdies on the 12th and 13th holes protected his lead, and a 12-footer for birdie on the par-4 16th pushed the edge out to 3 shots.

"I just kept telling myself, 'I've put myself in this position for a reason,'" Eckroat said. "This is what I want to do."

Eckroat laid up on the par-5 18th to protect his lead and take water out of play, knowing all he had to do was avoid disaster to finish off his first tour win in 50 career starts. He made an easy par, sealing the win.

"I was just really happy I was able to perform in the situation," Eckroat said.

Van Rooyen had his round of 8-under 63 on Sunday to finish at 14 under. Cameron Young (66), K.H. Lee (66) and Jake Knapp (66) all ended their rounds Monday, wrapping up at 13 under. K.H. Lee made three birdies in the five holes he played Monday.

But nobody caught Eckroat, a 25-year-old who was a star at Oklahoma State before turning pro.

His most memorable tour moment, before Monday, likely was last year in the final round of the U.S. Open to become the sixth player in that tournament's history to post a nine-hole score of 29. Eckroat shot a 5-under 65 and finished in a tie for 10th at 3 under -- ensuring he'd play in this year's U.S. Open.

The season's first major awaits him now as well. He's going to Augusta National next month, with stops at Bay Hill and The Players along the way to Magnolia Lane.

"The adversity of sleeping midround, I'm just really happy with how I handled it," said Eckroat, who became the fourth first-time winner in nine tour events this season, joining Nick Dunlap, Matthieu Pavon and Knapp.

For Knapp, last week's winner in Mexico, he has now had three top-five finishes in his 10 career PGA Tour starts. His earnings are up to about $2.5 million.

"I was happy with how I managed everything this week," Knapp told Golf Channel.

The Monday finish was needed after a thunderstorm dumped nearly 2 inches of rain and brought lightning to the area Sunday afternoon, causing a 3½-hour delay in the final round. Of the 68 players who made the cut, 42 finished Sunday -- so 26 returned Monday to play somewhere between one and 13 holes.

It was a quick day for Billy Horschel . He couldn't get to the 18th tee before the horn blew to stop play Sunday night, meaning he had to come back and play the par-5 finishing hole Monday. He had a 9-footer for birdie, settled for par and was done in 15 minutes.

Horschel -- who vaulted into the mix with six consecutive birdies Sunday afternoon -- finished at 12 under. He ended up tied for ninth, along with Keith Mitchell , Peter Malnati , Alex Noren , Andrew Novak , Kevin Yu and Martin Laird .

Austin Eckroat Captures First PGA Tour Win at Cognizant Classic

  • Author: Gabrielle Herzig

The Oklahoma State golf program can add another PGA Tour win to its stacked resume.

Four-time All-American Austin Eckroat clinched his maiden Tour victory on Monday at the Cognizant Classic after the tournament’s Sunday finish was postponed due to extreme weather. 

With rounds of 65-67-68-67, Eckroat stormed to a three-shot victory over South Africa’s Erik van Rooyen and Australia’s Min Woo Lee at PGA National’s Champions course. Cameron Young, Jake Knapp and K.H. Lee tied for fourth at 13 under.

Eckroat, 25, handled the unconventional tournament scheduling like a seasoned pro after his Sunday tee time was postponed until 5 p.m. local time due to heavy rain and unplayable conditions. He finished his first seven holes in 2 under before play was suspended due to darkness. A long night ensued for Eckroat, who held a one-shot lead heading into the continuation of play Monday.

But the Cowboy maintained a level head despite the unusual circumstances and pushed through to a dominant victory. He finished his final 11 holes in 2 under par, going 1 under through the treacherous “Bear Trap,” which includes the tricky 15th, 16th and 17th holes. 

“The adversity of sleeping mid-round, I’m just really happy with how I handled it,” Eckroat said. “I just kept telling myself, I put myself in this position for a reason—it’s what I want to do. I was happy that I was able to perform in the situation.” 

At 25 years old, Eckroat’s path to the winner’s circle on the PGA Tour has looked a bit different than that of his former teammates, Viktor Hovland and Matthew Wolff. Eckroat was a member of the 2018 OSU team that swept Alabama for its 11th NCAA team championship title, but instead of pursuing a professional career immediately like Wolff and Hovland, Eckroat stayed on the roster until 2020. 

He turned professional in 2021 and earned limited Korn Ferry Tour status for 2022 through Q-School. In his third Korn Ferry Tour start, Eckroat made his first cut and tied for 23rd. The finish launched him into a career-defining hot streak. He posted nine top-25 finishes in 11 events to place 34th on the KFT points list. That result didn’t earn Eckroat his PGA Tour card immediately, but it did give him a place in the Korn Ferry Tour Finals. The college standout went on to seize that opportunity, finishing second at the Korn Ferry Tour Championship to secure 2023 PGA Tour membership. 

Last year Eckroat’s season was highlighted by a T2 finish at the AT&T Byron Nelson and a T10 finish at the U.S. Open at LACC. 

Eckroat’s win at the Cognizant Classic locks up his PGA Tour status for the next two seasons and earns him an invitation to next month's Masters .

His bank account will see another $4 million added to it. The World No. 1 golfer took home a one-shot victory at Muirfield Village and earned that distinctive handshake from Jack Nicklaus himself.

The former Texas Longhorn has won $24,024,553 this season , setting the single-season record for most money won in a season for the third time, per the PGA Tour website. He set the record in 2021-22 at $14,046,910 and once again last year at $21,014,342) The season is not even halfway over, and Scheffler is already at the $24 million mark.

That is over $12 million more than Xander Schauffele, who sits No. 2 on the money list. During the season, the 2024 PGA Championship winner has currently earned $11,597,071.

Schauffele finished T8 this week at Jack’s Place, collecting $579,000. Adam Hadwin did not win, but he did take home $1,400,00 for solo third place. Christian Bezuidenthout was the fourth PGA Tour player to win seven figures on Sunday, winning $1,000,000.

Austin eckroat claims first pga tour win at 2024 cognizant classic in the palm beaches, share this article.

Inclement weather delayed the final round of the 2024 Cognizant Classic in the Palm Beaches by more than three hours on Sunday afternoon and pushed the first event of the PGA Tour’s Florida Swing to a Monday finish.

After heavy rains pummelled PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, Austin Eckroat found himself in the lead at 15 under entering the fifth day of play. Eleven holes later he walked away with the trophy at 17 under for his first PGA Tour win in just his 50th start. Eckroat made two birdies over seven holes on Sunday afternoon before play was called due to darkness and the 25-year-old doubled down on Monday and signed for a 4-under 67 to seal the three-shot win.

Starting the day on the 8th hole, Eckroat eased back into his round with pars on his opening four holes before a pair of birdies on Nos. 12 and 13. A pulled putt from six feet for par led to his lone bogey of the final round on the par-4 14th, but the Oklahoma State grad extended his lead back to three shots with another birdie on No. 16.

Min Woo Lee (67) and Erik van Rooyen (63) finished T-2 at 14 under.

The PGA Tour is back in action next week in Orlando with the 2024 Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill.

WATCH: Sepp Straka sinks hole-in-one at Pinehurst during 2024 U.S. Open for first ace of PGA Tour career

Straka's good fortune followed one of the worst breaks of the championship.

sepp-straka-us-open-g.jpg

Sepp Straka's iron play has been dialed in during the second round of the 2024 U.S. Open. So dialed, in fact, that the smooth-swinging Austrian made the first hole-in-one of the championship from 194 yards on the par-3 9th. Straka's ace at Pinehurst No. 2 marks the first of his PGA Tour career, and it couldn't have come at a better time as his name hovered near the projected cutline in the year's third major championship.

Ace alert! 🙌 No issue with the flagstick this time for @seppstraka . 🇦🇹 pic.twitter.com/8pySzBFpha — U.S. Open (@usopengolf) June 14, 2024

Catapulting himself to 2 over for the championship, Straka has found new life at the U.S. Open as he navigates the back nine at Pinehurst. Straka's name fell on the wrong side of the projected cutline early Friday because of his iron play. Striking the flag stick with his approach into the par-4 3rd, Straka received perhaps the worst break of the evet when his ball ricocheted off the pin and flew back into the greenside bunker.

Straka put a triple-bogey seven on the card and added a couple bogeys to continue in the wrong direction. Following a few nice pars, Straka cashed in big time on the par-3 9th to get back to 2 over. After opening his U.S. Open with an even-par 70, the 31-year-old appears likely to play himself into the weekend.

Now THAT is a tough break 😔 pic.twitter.com/qQAFchfHeo — U.S. Open (@usopengolf) June 14, 2024

Scottie Scheffler 7th on all-time PGA Tour earnings list

Jun 9, 2024; Dublin, Ohio, USA; Scottie Scheffler tees off on the 18th hole during the final round of the Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village Golf Club. Mandatory Credit: Adam Cairns-USA TODAY Sports

Scottie Scheffler  earned his 11th PGA Tour win Sunday at the 2024 Memorial Tournament . In a quirk of scheduling, it’s his first victory after the month of April.

Regardless, a win is a win is a win, and Scheffler now has five this year, the first to win five in a season since Justin Thomas seven years ago.

What’s more, it’s yet another signature event victory, which means elevated first-place cash. This Memorial win was good for $4 million and brings his career on-course earnings on the PGA Tour to $66,589,782.

His win in April at the Masters moved him into  10th all-time . This latest victory has leapfrogged him past Justin Rose and Adam Scott into the No. 7 slot.

His 11 wins include two Masters, two Players (the richest event on the PGA Tour), two Arnold Palmer Invitationals, two WM Phoenix Opens (one of which was a signature event) as well as a Match Play, an RBC Heritage and now a Memorial.

He is a Tiger Woods-hosted Genesis Invitational shy of winning all three of the player-hosted events.

Scottie Scheffler’s 11 PGA Tour wins

  • 2022 WM Phoenix Open:  $1,476,000
  • 2022 Arnold Palmer Invitational:  $2,160,000
  • 2022 World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play:  $2,100,000
  • 2022 Masters:  $2,700,000
  • 2023 WM Phoenix Open:  $3,600,000
  • 2023 Players Championship:  $4,500,000
  • 2024 Arnold Palmer Invitational:  $4,000,000
  • 2024 Players Championship:  $4,500,000
  • 2024 Masters:  $3,600,000
  • 2024 RBC Heritage:  $3,600,000
  • 2024 Memorial Tournament.

Scheffler is one of 16 players in the history of the PGA Tour to reach the $50 million plateau in on-course earnings.

Runner-up Collin Morikawa and Ben An became the ninth and 10 th  players this season to cross $5 million in earnings.

Here’s a closer look at how much each player who made the cut in the 73-man field earned from a purse of $20 million.
