Scheffler

The top-ranked player in the world, Scottie Scheffler, attempted to drive into the entrance of Valhalla Golf Club, home of this week’s PGA Championship, and was apprehended by Louisville Metro Police on Friday morning.

After a tragic event where a man was struck and killed by a shuttle bus at five in the morning ET, traffic around the golf course had been stopped.

At 8:40 a.m. ET on Friday, Scheffler was released from the Louisville Metro Department of Corrections without bond.

He is accused of felony second-degree assault of a police officer as well as several misdemeanors, including reckless driving, third-degree criminal mischief, and disobeying traffic signals from an officer directing traffic—less than an hour before his planned tee time of 10:08 a.m. ET, Scheffler arrived at Valhalla, according to Maj. Jason Logsdon, as reported by ESPN.

In the chaos that followed the recent fatal event, confusion pervaded the air and resulted in a major misinterpretation of the work at hand.

actions were a product of misunderstanding, not a deliberate attempt to disobey any orders. My attention is completely focused on today’s golfing activities as we work to move past this incident. I am excited to fully immerse myself in the sport’s calm rhythm and steadfast focus.

“Naturally, the family of the individual who died in the previous accident this morning has our sincere condolences. This is true for all of us engaged in the event. It really does put things into perspective.”  Scheffer quoted to espn.in

Scheffler drove around ten or twenty yards in the direction of the entrance, defying a police officer’s demands to stop, and at one time the officer was hanging on to the side of his car. The dramatic scene continued until Scheffler pulled into Valhalla Golf Club and eventually halted his vehicle.

Scheffler stalled for a moment before Darlington described how he was suddenly grabbed by the arm as he dropped his window to speak with the police. The cop quickly reached inside the car to open the door, pulling Scheffler out and packing him in against the car while handcuffing him.
