Scheffler extends streak with dominant RBC Heritage win

Scottie Scheffler secured his fourth PGA Tour win in five starts after completing a dominant three-shot victory in a weather-delayed finish at the RBC Heritage.

The world No 1 was four under for his final round with three holes remaining when play was suspended due to darkness on Sunday at Hilton Head, following a two-and-a-half-hour delay due to thunderstorms, leaving Scheffler one of nine players returning on Monday to finish.

Scheffler resumed on 20 under and five clear of the chasing pack, with two pars and a bogey over his closing holes seeing him complete a three-under 68 and register a 10th PGA Tour victory in 26 months.

Victory sees Scheffler become the first player to follow a win at The Masters with another the following week since Bernhard Langer’s double in 1985, with the American the first to win on the PGA Tour the week after a major since Tiger Woods in 2006.

Scheffler’s latest success follows wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players, prior to claiming a second Green Jacket in three years earlier this month, with the 27-year-old only the third player this century to win or finish runner-up in five consecutive PGA Tour starts.
