Scoring 17-under-par, the 2022 Masters winner finished five shots clear of second-place Tyrrell Hatton at Players Stadium Course in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. Scheffler’s victory came with a staggering $4.5 million in prize money from a $25 million prize pool.
So when are the actual majors in 2023?
Here’s what you need to know about the four biggest golf events this year.
When and where is the Masters 2023?
The Masters is the first from April 6 to 9. Scheffler will be looking for a second green jacket at Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia after winning his first major championship there last year.
When and where is the 2023 PGA Championship?
Once the green jacket is awarded, the PGA Championship will be May 18-21 at Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, New York.
