The internet is currently flooded with celebrations of the World No. 1’s recent victory at TPC Sawgrass.

You must have seen golfers having their kids and wives on the field to walk a few holes along with them. In some cases, even friends and coaches have done that for professionals. However, in this case, Scheffler had his granny have his back at the Players Championship. In fact, the golfer’s grandmother didn’t only walk halfway, but the entire course with him.

When asked about how it made him feel to have Mary on the field rooting for him, he said it was really impressive“I mean, it’s pretty impressive she’s walking so many holes out here. She’s a trooper.” Scheffler said in his Players Championship press conference after securing the $4.5 million winner’s check. “We’ve been coming here to spend time with her for a long time.”

However, Scheffler also added that his grandmother was going through a really rough phase in her life. But she chose to support him anyways, and that meant the world to him. “She’s had a rough last year with Grandpa passing away, and we have an uncle that’s pretty sick, and I’m just happy that we’re able to kind of enjoy all this together.”

Not to forget, this wasn’t the first time Scheffler’s grandmother did something like this for him. Back in 2022, Mary walked all 18 holes at the Arnold Palmer Invitational Bay Hill to support the PGA Tour star. And currently aged 88, it is not as easy as she made it look to walk the entire field with her grandson.

But luckily for Scheffler, he has more than just his grandmother supporting him during tournaments. Even his wife, Meredith Scudder, has been present during most events throughout his 18-hole walks. Married in 2020, Scheffler has been dating Scudder ever since his high school days. Although the two started as just friends in the beginning, the golfer’s wife has always been by his side.

Surprisingly, despite being one of his biggest supporters, it was quite funny how Scudder learned about her husband’s star-studded career. While discussing his relationship with Meredith, Scheffler explained how he got an opportunity to play in the Byron Nelson tournament as a high school student. But poor Scudder had no idea about it at the time.

“I was at her house one day, we were hanging out with her dad or something and the commercial came on TV. And she was kind of looking around, she was like, ‘Wait a minute. Isn’t that next weekend? Isn’t that what you’re doing?”, the golfer recalled. But no matter what, Scheffler highly credits his wife for always being super supportive towards him in his career.
