Scottie Scheffler appeared to take five minutes assessing his shot during the first round of the PGA Championship Thursday.
Scheffler, the World No. 2, shot an impressive 3-under par 67 during the first round of the season's second major, however, he still took some heat online for his round.
The 26-year-old is one of the PGA Tour's biggest current stars after winning four times in a matter of just a few months in 2022. He's followed it up with two more wins in 2023.
In his short time under the microscope of the PGA Tour, he's largely stayed out of controversy. But he might need to pick up the pace if he wants to continue that way.
The topic of slow play has been a leading discussion on the PGA Tour ever since The Masters in early April.
Cantlay, 31, quickly became the face of slow play on the PGA Tour.
And now, Scheffler's accidentally taking some heat off of his fellow American.
In a clip posted on Twitter, it appears as though the former Masters champion takes nearly five minutes to assess his second shot at the par-4 14th of Oak Hill Country Club.
Scheffler was in the rough, left of the green, with 52 yards to set up a chance for birdie. He's seen running up and down the hill to take a peak at the green multiple times.
Though, it's not entirely clear whether this was a result of confusion as to whose turn it was or just indecisiveness.
Here is nearly 5 minutes of Scottie assessing his shot. Brooks with the hand gestures lol and Gary looks to have said something before Scottie threw up his hands seemingly not knowing he was up idk pic.twitter.com/g8kpXCPMK3— Joe I (@TourPicks) May 18, 2023
Scheffler ended up hitting his shot to within 15 feet and then made that putt for his birdie to get to 3-under par.
Once again, Koepka had a front-row seat to the slow play, as he and Gary Woodland were in the group with Scheffler.
Koepka shot a 2-over par 72 while Woodland recorded a 3-over par 73. They were one of the groups who were able to finish their round before play was suspended due to darkness Thursday.
