Fans want to know more about Scottie Scheffler’s wife Meredith Scudder as the Masters champion bids for a second major at the US Open.

Scottie Scheffler is a professional golfer on the PGA Tour and Ryder Cup rookie. The 25-year-old from Ridgewood, New Jersey, was named the PGA Tour’s rookie of the year in 2020.

In that same season, Scheffler tied for fourth at the PGA Championship. He followed that by finishing tied seventh at the 2021 US Open and tied eighth at The Open Championship.
