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.
