Scottie Scheffler has secured his 10th PGA Tour title with a win at the RBC Heritage, making it his fourth of the season. The 27-year-old is the first player to win ten or more times on the PGA Tour in three seasons since Dustin Johnson between 2015 and 2018.

Scheffler held a five-shot lead through 15 over Wyndham Clark, Patrick Cantlay, J.T Poston and Sahith Theegala, when play was suspended due to severe rain and lightning at Harbour Town Golf Links.

Play resumed on Monday morning with four groups left on the course, where the Masters champion carded a par-par-bogey finish to win by three over Theegala.

This week’s victory ties his career-high of four wins in a season — previously achieved in 2021-2022 — and makes him only the fourth player with multiple four-win seasons since the start of 2000, joining Phil Mickelson (2), Vijay Singh (3) and Tiger Woods (10).

Scheffler has also matched Vijay Singh and Tiger Woods as the third player in the last 30 years to win or finish runner-up in five consecutive starts (Win-Win-T2-Win-Win).

The 27-year old's win should also help to put the past behind him.

After failing to win for the remainder of the PGA Tour season following his 2022 Masters victory, the world number one has now become the first player to win a major and on tour the following week since Tiger Woods in 2006.

“I was able to go home for a couple days and celebrate,” Scheffler said.

“I didn’t really put much thought into it. I had committed to playing the tournament here, it was part of the plan, so we stuck to the plan.

“I talked about it at the beginning of the week – I didn’t show up here just to have some sort of ceremony and have people tell me congratulations. I came here with a purpose, got off to a slow start but after that played some really nice golf.

“I do have fairly high expectations for myself and when I show up at tournaments, I try to do my best.

“I’ve talked a lot about kind of the preparation and what it takes for me to show up on a first tee ready to go, and I feel like I’ve been putting in the work and been playing some good golf, and it’s nice to be seeing some results for that with wins.

“On the course, I think the last month or so I’ve been as good mentally as I have in a long time and I think that’s why I am seeing some of the results"
