Update: Scheffler has pulled into third place and is three shots behind the leader through 13 holes.
The No. 1 player in the world showed why once again, as Scottie Scheffler dropped in his second career PGA TOUR hole-in-one at the Charles Schwab Challenge on Sunday.
And it’s a beauty. A cut 7-iron on the 189-yard 8th hole.
For Scheffler, it moves him to -7, just five shots off leader Harry Hall with plenty of golf to play on Sunday. Could the eagle be part of a final round comeback? The bettors at DraftKings Sportsbook certainly think so, as Scheffler moves to +750 to win the event despite being that far behind.
With only Hall (-12) Harris English and Adam Schenk (both -10) in front of him as of now, there’s plenty of opportunity still. English is the only one of that threesome to have won a PGA TOUR event previously, he should be the favorite to close.
We’ll see what happens, but Scheffler’s one makes the rest of the tournament much more interesting.
