Scheffler edged Cameron Champ for low-amateur honors in the 2017 U.S. Open at Erin Hills. A year earlier, he missed the cut at Oakmont Country Club, despite a first-round 69. He turned professional in 2018 after a successful four-year career at the University of Texas, earning the 2015 Phil Mickelson Award for being the nation's top freshman golfer.
