Who is Meredith Scudder? Age and relationship explored
Meredith Scudder, 25, is the wife of golfer Scottie Scheffler. The couple met as teenagers in high school and started dating in 2014, PlayersGF reports.
When it came to setting off for further education, the two opted to study in Texas but at rival colleges. Scheffler attended the University of Texas while Scudder enrolled at the University of Texas A&M.
Despite this, the couple remained together and frequently visited each other on campus before both graduating in 2018. By 2020, Scottie decided to pop the question and the pair tied the knot.
Since then, Meredith has been Scottie’s biggest supporter, staying by his side for major moments in his career including his Masters win.

As Scottie and Meredith celebrated the golfer’s big win, the couple were pictured embracing, with Scheffler picking his wife up off the ground.
If you didn’t know, Scottie is a pretty tall guy, so it makes total sense the couple have a height gap.
According to Wiki.ng, Meredith is about 5ft 5in, whereas Scottie stands at around 6ft 3in. That gives them a height gap of about 10in. That’s not even a whole foot!
Meredith Scudder shares words of encourgement
Winning the Masters, as you can imagine, isn’t an easy task, and Scottie Scheffler was able to get through it with the help of his wife.
Reportedly, Scottie had some doubts on Sunday morning before his final round, but Meredith helped him compose himself.
“My identity isn’t a golf score,” he tweeted. “Like Meredith told me this morning, ‘If you win this golf tournament, if you lose by ten shots, if you never win another golf tournament again, I’m still going to love you, you’re still going to be the same person.’”
We love the encouragement. What a winning combination!
