After U.S. Open struggles, world No. 1 Scheffler chasing another title at Travelers

After snapping his streak of 11 straight top-10 finishes, Scottie Scheffler looks to return to the top of the leaderboard this week at the Travelers Championship in Cromwell, Conn. The World No. 1 tied for 41st place and finished 14 strokes behind U.S. Open winner Bryson DeChambeau last week at Pinehurst, N.C. His top-10 streak began at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am from Feb. 1-3 and included a Masters championship and four other wins.

Just a long week,” Scheffler said of his result at Pinehurst No. 2. “I didn’t have my best stuff and that’s a pretty difficult golf course to try and make a lot of birdies and play some good golf around when you don’t have your best stuff.” Scheffler spoke with reporters on Wednesday at TPC River Highlands, where he is making his fifth career start and coming off a T4 finish in 2023. After putting together 41 straight rounds at par or better this season, Scheffler arrives at the Travelers on a streak of five straight rounds over par.
