Scottie Scheffler: What's in the bag of the new World No.1?

Scottie Scheffler used the new TaylorMade Stealth Plus driver on his way to becoming World No.1 at the WGC Match Play.

On February 12, Scheffler was still winless on the PGA Tour and ranked 14th in the world. Now, he is a three-time winner on the PGA Tour and top of the rankings pile.

The 25-year-old showed his match play expertise at the Ryder Cup in 2021 when he beat Jon Rahm 4&3 in the Sunday singles and he earned 2.5 points for Team USA in three matches.

Scheffler came through tough matches against Billy Horschel, Seamus Power and Dustin Johnson before meeting Kevin Kisner in the final at Austin Country Club.

Kisner came from 3 down with four to play against Adam Scott in the last-16 to win on the 18th hole. He then impressively beat Will Zalatoris and Corey Conners to reach his third final in four years.

But Scheffler was too strong. The man from Texas led from the second hole and sealed the deal on the 15th hole. He won 4&3 and avenged his defeat in the final in 2021.
