Silence on Scottie Scheffler’s incident, Steph Curry Darts attention to struggling golfer at PGA Championship

A bizarre incident uprooted the golf club during the ongoing PGA Championship. Blocked by traffic, the world’s number one golfer Scottie Scheffler sat in a courtesy car. These vehicles have unrestricted access by traffic outside the golf course to avoid disruption on match day. However, on this particular day, a fatal accident reportedly occurred on the stretch outside Valhalla.

Scheffler, unaware of the procedure, attempted to use his courtesy car’s powers and drive through the traffic block. Police tried to stop him, but the confusion made matters worse. Just before entering Valhalla, the ten-time Major winner was arrested by the Louisville Metro Police. The arrest took place at 5 a.m. early in the morning. Fortunately, Scheffler was released hours later and competed in the PGA Championship.

Naturally, the golf club could only talk about this event. A number of experts and even fellow golfers expressed support for the phenomenon. However, Stephen Curry, an avid fan of the sport, was not looking forward to the morning controversy.

The young and ambitious golf talent has not had much success in major tournaments so far. He has yet to achieve a top-10 finish in any of the four tournaments. Lee’s most successful PGA Championship was a T18 finish last year. Faced with drought, such moments are exceptionally good for an athlete’s self-confidence.

In other business, Lee is also part of Stephen Curry’s Bay Golf Club for Woods’ TGL. The indoor golf tournament, initiated by one of the richest athletes Tiger Woods, is expected to start in 2025. Lee, still in the hunt for a first Majors title, is hopeful his trophy hiatus will soon end in the near future. In addition, he will also represent his idol on the golf course, who wouldn’t want that?
