GLENVIEW, Illinois — Scottie Scheffler rallied from a six-shot deficit to claim his first Web.com Tour title at the Evans Scholars Invitational. The Web.com Tour rookie defeated Marcelo Rozo on the second playoff hole at The Glen Club. Scheffler posted a final-round 9-under 63 to force the playoff and drained a 15-foot birdie putt on the second extra hole to capture his first professional win.
“It feels great. It’s been a good season so far and it’s nice to get my first professional win out here,” Scheffler said. “To get the first professional win is awesome, and it kind of gets the monkey off my back. Hopefully, it’ll lead to some bigger things to come this year.”
