The 2024 RBC Heritage Recap

Hilton Head Island, SC – Scottie Scheffler has won the 2024 RBC Heritage.  This marks his fourth win in his last five starts.  That makes him the first player to do so since Tiger Woods achieved that feat in 2007-08.  This win also earns him $3.6 million.  This is his 10th career PGA Tour win and his 4th win of 2024 alone. 

Following a long rain delay on Sunday, play was called for darkness, and resumed early in the morning on Monday.  Then, Scheffler continued to prove why he is the best golfer on the planet.   In back-to-back weeks he has won, coming away with the RBC Heritage’s tartan jacket to match his pair of green jackets from the Master’s wins.  

Since Scheffler’s switch to the Spider Tour X mallet, he has been on an absolute tear, after having historically struggled with putting.  He would finish the tournament with a score of 19-under-par winning by three strokes.  Not only is Scheffler’s play earning him FedEx Cup points and prestige, but also massive amounts of money.  In 2024 he has aquired $18.7 million in winnings. 

Undoubtedly other players are yearning to win with Scheffler racking up these titles, and some of the best players in the world were close behind.  However, nobody could close the gap.  The closest ones were Sahith Theegala in solo second and Wyndham Clark and Patrick Cantlay in a tie for third at 16 and 15-under-par respectively.  

The players will travel to Louisiana next week to play The Zurich Classic of New Orleans.  That tournament is the only one of the year that features duos.  While Scheffler won’t be in attendance, some extremely talented pairs will be including Rory McIlroy & Shane Lowry, Collin Morikawa and Kurt Kitayama, and the Fitzpatrick brothers will all be vying for the title.
