Scottie Scheffler | Travelers Championship

By The Associated Press

CROMWELL, Conn. (AP) — Scottie Scheffler beat Tom Kim on the first playoff hole to win the Travelers Championship on Sunday, waiting out a disruption by intruders who sprayed powder on the 18th green for his sixth win of the year.

That’s the most in one PGA Tour season since Tiger Woods won six in 2009.

And Scheffler, the world’s top-ranked player, still has two months to go.

It was Scheffler’s fourth victory of the year in the PGA Tour’s $20 million limited-field, no-cut signature events, earning him a payday of $3.6 million. He also won the Masters and The Players Championship.

Scheffler closed with a 5-under 65 for a four-day total of 22-under 258 at the TPC River Highlands. After the disruption on the 18th, which delayed play for about five minutes after police tackled the intruders, Scheffler left a 26-foot putt from the fringe on the edge of the cup and tapped in for par. Kim then made a 10-foot birdie putt to match Scheffler at 22 under.

The hole location on the 18th was moved for the playoff to avoid the parts of the green affected by the intruders. Scheffler hit his approach to 11 feet while Kim found a plugged lie in a greenside bunker. Scheffler two-putted for par and the victory.

Coming off a tie for 41st in the U.S. Open, by far his worst finish of the year, Scheffler trailed Kim by three strokes after the first round, by two after the second round, and by one heading to the tee on Sunday.
