Scottie Scheffler Net Worth

Scottie Scheffler’s net worth is reportedly now north of $50 million, a staggering figure for a guy who’s had his PGA Tour card for only four years and doesn’t turn 28 until June 2024.

LIV Tour Money Scheffler Turned Down

When the Saudi-funded LIV Golf League attempted – sometimes successfully – to recruit top stars from the PGA Tour, Scheffler declined the opportunity despite the lure of a reported $150 million to join.

With his talent and on-course earnings, though, he doesn’t have to leave the PGA Tour.

His additional forms of income include deals with Nike, Rolex, NetJets and Titleist, as well as more than $5 million from the Player Impact Program, which rewards players for their role in promoting the PGA Tour.

Forbes recently put Scheffler’s endorsements, sponsors and contracts at approximately $15 million per year.
