Scottie Scheffler had a meteoric rise in 2022, winning four times on the PGA Tour and claiming a coveted Green Jacket at the Masters. By his side during all this success was Meredith Scudder, Scheffler’s wife who he married in 2020 after a six-year relationship.
Here’s everything you need to know about Scudder and the couple’s relationship.

A Texas native through and through, Meredith went to Providence Christian School as a child before attending Highland Park High School until 2014. It was here she would meet future husband Scottie Scheffler before attending the university Texas A&M as a communication major, securing her bachelor’s degree in 2018.
Scudder has since worked as a university counsellor, event planner and humanitarian organiser. She is now the co-founder of a company which supports the lives of cancer victims.

In June 2020, Scheffler popped the question to Scudder whilst out hiking at the Arbor Hills Nature Preserve in Texas.
When did they get married?
Scottie and Meredith were married at a Winter Wonderland themed wedding in December 2020. The service took place at Arlington Hall in Dallas.

Anything else about Scottie Scheffler’s wife?
Meredith is regularly spotted on the PGA Tour supporting her husband. After winning both the Arnold Palmer Invitational and WGC Dell Technologies Match Play, Meredith greeted Scheffler on the 18th green to congratulate the soon to be world number 1.
When Scheffler was asked how he was going to spend his Saturday night ahead of the final round of the 2022 Masters, the PGA Tour rookie of the year said he was probably just going to grab some takeout and watch The Office with Meredith. “We’re about halfway through season four,” he said. “It’s about as relatable as any of us will get to one of the finest golfers on the planet right now.”
She has since been spotted supporting Scheffler at the PGA Championship, US Open and Presidents Cup.
