Scottie Scheffler has earned more than $28,000,000 (£22m) in competition winnings so far in 2024, after topping the tees of The Masters, The Memorial, The Arnold Palmer Invitational and more. Despite a sub-par performance at The US Open earlier this month – having tied 41st alongside the likes of Jordan Spieth and Billy Horschel – Scheffler has managed to break the bank with gold-standard finishes across a number of other majors.

He kicked off his year with a T5 finish at The Sentry to take home $690,500, before a T17th at The American Express Cup at PGA West topped his balance up by $132,300. A T6 at the  AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and a T3 at the WM Phoenix Open would add another $1,161,700 to Scheffler's winnings while a T10 at The Genesis Invitational would see him a further $455,500 better off.

The World No. 1's first tournament win wouldn't come until the Arnold Palmer Invitational of March, where Scheffler would take home the top prize of $4,000,000 for his outstanding performance, before going back to back in The Players Championship the week after to add another $4,500,000 to his winnings for the year.

A second-place finish at the Texas Children's Houston Open would see him rake in another $553,735, before wins at The Masters and the RBC Heritage would come with respective prizes of $3,600,000-a-piece. The PGA Championship would spell trouble for Scheffler, with the golfer being arrested for second-degree assault of a police officer, third-degree criminal mischief, reckless driving, and disregarding traffic signals.

The charges were subsequently dropped shortly after his arrest, and Scheffler was able to pave his way to a T8 finish in the competition and an extra $521,417 to his earnings – while a T2 at the Charles Schwab Challenge would land him another $809,900.

Scheffler was back to winning ways at The Memorial earlier this month to take home $4,000,000 while his lowest finish of the year at The US Open (T41) would offer $72,305. But the 28-year-old would bounce back at The Travelers at the weekend to clinch his sixth tournament of 2024 thus far, bagging a cool $4,000,000 to top his total takings up to $28,096,857.

With the golf season nowhere near finished, Scheffler will have the chance to bolster his earnings for the year even further at the likes of the John Deere Classic, The Open at Royal Troon and the Genesis Scottish Open. The latter was taken last year by Rory McIlroy, who will be hoping to defend his championship after he missed out on his first major title in 10 years at The US Open earlier this month.

McIlroy would tense up in monumental fashion on the last five holes, allowing Bryson DeChambeau to capitalise on mistakes and take home the second major of his career. And while McIlroy is one of the sport's biggest earners to date, he'll have some stiff competition in an in-form Scheffler if he wants to improve on the $10,034,665 that he is reported to have racked up this year so far.
