The 2024 Arnold Palmer Invitational Recap

Bay Hill, FL – Scottie Scheffler has won the 2024 Arnold Palmer Invitational with a score of 15-under par. This win marks his seventh PGA Tour title. More than that, this resolidifies him as the number-one-ranked golfer in the world and earns him $4 million.

This is a venue and a tournament that Scheffler has always felt comfortable with. His second PGA Tour win was at this tournament two years ago. This year though, the difference was the final round.

On a day where the other top four players shot Sunday scores of 2-under or even par, Scheffler went out and won the tournament carding a 6-under 66. The equipment story this week was undoubtedly his switch in flatsticks. It’s been a known issue that Scheffler has struggled with his putter. Yet, in just his first start after transitioning into a Spider Tour X mallet, he made all 16 putts he faced within 15 feet today.

It should come as no surprise that he bested some of the best players in the world as the Arnold Palmer Invitational is known for having a deep field. Other notables this week included major-winner Wyndham Clark who finished in second, and the Irishman Shane Lowry who finished in third with scores of 10 and 9-under par respectively.

Next week is one of the most prestigious events of the year, The Players. There, Scheffler will look to continue his hot streak by going for a second win in a row. He’ll also look to defend his title as he won The Player’s last year as well. With arguably the strongest field outside of one of the four majors, however, that task will not be an easy feat.
