World’s Best Golfer Arrested Attempting to Enter PGA Championship

May 17, 2024

Scottie Scheffler, this year’s Masters champion and the No. 1–ranked golfer in the world, was arrested by police early Friday morning outside of Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, while trying to make his way to the second round of the PGA Championship.

A traffic jam resulted after a pedestrian was hit and killed by a tournament shuttle bus. ESPN reporter Jeff Darlington was on the scene when Scheffler attempted to drive past a police officer to enter the golf course. Scheffler was handcuffed and put into the back of a cop car. Darlington said the officers were not aware who Scheffler was, and they told the golfer he was going to jail.
