Scottie Scheffler plays Genesis Invitational Collegiate Showcase 24 hours after PGA Tour victory

Less than 24 hours after defending his WM Phoenix Open title for his fifth PGA Tour win, Scottie Scheffler was teeing it up again on Monday.

At a college event in California.

Since 2015 the Genesis Invitational Collegiate Showcase has provided a college golfer with the chance to play into the field for the PGA Tour’s Genesis Invitational. A college player is grouped with a Tour pro and two amateur players for a team competition, in addition to the individual, where universities can earn a $50,000 donation to support their golf program.

A University of Texas graduate, Scheffler teed it up with Brian Stark, a graduate student and recent transfer from Oklahoma State.

Scheffler won the showcase in 2018 with a 3-under-par 68 but missed the cut with tournament rounds of 73-76. His fellow current Tour pros to win the event are Sahith Theegala (2017) and Will Zalatoris (2015).

The 2023 showcase came down to a playoff between Kentucky senior Alex Goff and Texas Tech senior Jack Wall after the pair finished the round even par. Both players made birdie on the short par-4 10th, but it was Wall who earned the exemption with an eagle on the par-5 11th.
