World's Top Golfer Scottie Scheffler Arrested At PGA Championship

The No. 1-ranked player in the world and winner of The Masters last month , Scottie Scheffler, has been detained by police in handcuffs after a misunderstanding with traffic flow led to his attempt to drive past a police officer into Valhalla Golf Club for the second round of the PGA Championship, as per Jeff Darlington.

The police officer grabbed onto Scheffler’s car as it entered Valhalla and Scheffler stopped. Scheffler then stopped his vehicle at the entrance to Valhalla. The police officer then began to scream at Scheffler to get out of the car.

When Scheffler exited the vehicle, the officer shoved Scheffler against the car and immediately placed him in handcuffs. He is now being detained in the back of a police car.

The start of the PGA Championship’s second round has been delayed one hour after a pedestrian was hit and killed by a shuttle bus at about 5 a.m.

Scheffler is currently tied for 12th, five strokes off the lead at -4. He was due to tee off at Valhalla at 8:48 a.m.
