Scottie Scheffler has never seen the Old Course before last Sunday. This week's British Open will be a

difficult, but Scheffler is only two strokes behind leaders Rory McIlroy and Viktor Hovland. Scheffler replied, "I think so,
when asked if it was possible to make up the deficit. You can get moving here quickly. I was rolling it very well
today, and I could have gone really low. I couldn't get the putts in. I had a terrible break on 12 (where he made an

Masters and Open five times in one year is also quite short: Ben Hogan (1953), Arnold Palmer (622) and Tom Watson (1977).
