Scottie Scheffler gearing up for PGA Championship despite Wells Fargo absence

Scottie Scheffler will not be in the field for next week’s Wells Fargo Championship as he is still waiting on his wife Meredith to deliver their first child.

However, the World No. 1 golfer still found ways to get on the golf course to keep his game sharp.

News surfaced that he played with former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo on Thursday at Maridoe Golf Course in Carrollton, Texas, per Golf Channel’s Brentley Romine.

“Per a member at the club, Scheffler played with Tony Romo, used a push cart and shot 67 in wet conditions,” Romine wrote.

Romo may not be a PGA Tour-level competitor, but he is no slouch on the golf course either.

The CBS Sports football analyst is a talented golfer who has appeared in several PGA Tour events with a sponsor exemption. He has also won the American Century Championship three times in 2018, 2019 and most recently, 2022.

Meredith’s due date is approaching, leaving the Scheffler’s on high alert even before he won The Masters for the second time in three years.

Scheffler was willing to withdraw from The Masters had Meredith gone into labor. It is only logical to assume that will be the same at the PGA Championship in a couple of weeks.

That is, however, if he is even in the field.

He has not commented publicly on whether he will compete in the second major of the year. The timing of their child’s birth will likely determine how much of a chance the rest of the field has knowing how hot Scheffler has been.
