The Scottie Scheffler mugshot seen around the world

Tiger Woods, John Daly and now Scottie Scheffler… Another golfing mugshot that will be seen around the world!

 

We expected to be talking about Scottie Scheffler this week, but we weren’t expecting to see a mugshot from a police station…

Just after 5am ET, there was a fatal accident involving a pedestrian and a bus on the main road outside Valhalla Golf Club, which is hosting this year’s PGA Championship.

Scheffler’s arrest was not connected to the fatality in any way, instead coming after some confusion around an hour later.

The World No 1 was stuck in traffic outside the golf course. He switched to the other side of the road, and ended up dragging a police officer along after the officer attempted to stop Scheffler.

Following the incident, the 27-year-old was handcuffed and detained by members of the Louisville Metropolitan Police Department.

Scheffler was booked by the Louisville Metropolitan Department of Corrections just before 7:30am, with the mugshot soon then doing the rounds on social media.

He would be released from jail around 8:40am, before arriving back at Valhalla Golf Club with just 45 minutes to go before his tee time.

Due to the earlier tragic accident, tee times were pushed back by more than an hour. This actually gave Scheffler more time in the end, with his start time moved back to just after 10am ET.

A post was published on Scheffler’s social channels prior to him teeing off, expressing his thoughts after the rather bizarre situation.

Scottie Scheffler: Major champion to mugshot in a month

Scheffler is not the first golfing star to be arrested, and he probably won’t be the last.

There have been some ‘iconic’ mugshots over the years, with none other than Tiger Woods being the one that everyone remembers.

For Scheffler, this is another moment in what has been a crazy and incredible month. He secured his second major title, and second Green Jacket by winning the Masters five weeks ago. That is one of four wins the American has so far in 2024.

He was then celebrating away from the golf course just over a week ago, as wife Meredith gave birth to the pair’s first child.

Now, on Friday, May 17, Scheffler has been arrested, released, and continues to challenge at the PGA Championship. What a month!

Now have your say on Scheffler’s day…

What did you make of the whole situation? Could you have ever believed we would see a mugshot of Scottie Scheffler? Let us know your thoughts with a post on X, formerly Twitter!

Mention a European country, and Matt will tell you which resorts make the National Club Golfer Top 100s: European Resorts list. He might even throw in who designed the golf course and how many rooms the hotel has got at each one…

Matt got into the game of golf from a young age, following his old man to the local golf club. He fell for the sport, and now can’t seem to go a day without thinking about how to improve his game (Thanks Dad!). Matt has been a member of Howley Hall GC in Leeds since 2020, and is just about managing to maintain a single-figure handicap. He likes to remind people that he once broke 75, but won’t tell people that it was on a shortened course during the winter.

He moved to Leeds after graduating from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Honours degree in Sports Journalism. Matt joined NCG after almost five years travelling the world with the Professional Squash Association, working on events in all four corners of the globe.

Matt currently plays a Cobra King LTDx driver and RadSpeed 3-wood. TaylorMade monopolise the rest of his bag, with a SIM UDI, M5 irons and both Milled Grind and HI-TOE wedges, along with a Monza Redline putter. He uses a Vice Pro Plus golf ball, because he’s a bit different…

Away from golf, Matt is a Manchester United fan, and a keen runner, having ran the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon (his first and possibly last), in May 2023.
