Scottie Scheffler baby, Collin Morikawa, Bryson DeChambeau scores, times, groups, how to watch

Are there a few nerves from world No.1 Scottie Scheffler on the opening holes?

Two years ago, when he was in the final group with Cameron Smith, Scheffler confessed to crying like a baby in front of wife Meredith at home on the morning of the last day, realising the enormity of the challenge he faced.

He’s been so much more dominant as golf’s best player in the last 12 months, but he’s scrambled par on the first hole and then left an approach with his third into the par-five second scattering patrons behind the green. It’s a minor miracle no one was seriously hurt from that.

He admits to touching the ball as he addressed the delicate downhill chip, but the ball didn’t move. Play on. He makes his up-and-down for par. Morikawa misses a very makeable eight-footer for birdie. Chance missed?

The second last group, Max Homa and Ludvig Aberg, both made earlier birdies on the second to close the gap. It’s remarkable to think Aberg is only playing his first major championship. He will be a star for a very long time.
