Scottie Scheffler won his fifth tournament of 2024 on Sunday and was able to celebrate with his new baby for the first time.

Bennett Scheffler, who was born on May 8, rested in Meredith Scheffler’s arms as Scottie Scheffler sank a crucial putt on the 18th hole Sunday afternoon to beat Collin Morikawa by one stroke and win the Memorial Tournament.

Scottie Scheffler’s baby

Scheffler made his way over to his wife and son after he celebrated the putt with some intense fist pumps.

He hugged them as Meredith Scheffler talked about baby Bennett being proud of his dad.

Scottie Scheffler later told CBS reporter Amanda Balionis that “it (was) pretty fun” for the three of them to be together to celebrate the win.

He appeared to get choked up as he looked over at his wife and son.

“He’s getting a little sunburnt right now it looks like but it’s all good. I’m going to give him my hat here in a second,” Scheffler added.

Scheffler’s baby also needed protection for his ears during the festivities since the crowd noise was deafening at times. Bennett Scheffler wore stick-on ear covers throughout his appearance at the Memorial Tournament.

As Scheffler spoke with Balionis and then received his trophy, Meredith Scheffler bounced the baby around in her arms to help him stay calm.
