Scheffler wins Memorial to claim fifth title of 2024

Scottie Scheffler holed a five-foot putt on the last to hold off Collin Morikawa and win the PGA Tour’s Memorial Tournament by one stroke to claim his fifth title of the year.

In doing so, the world number one became just the second player after Tiger Woods to win the Players Championship, Masters and Memorial in the same year.

The American led on 10 under overnight, four clear of Morikawa, Adam Hadwin and Sepp Straka but, rather than the expected procession, he was pushed all the way.

It was the perfect tune-up for Scheffler who is hot favourite to win his third major at this week’s US Open at Pinehurst.
