Scottie Scheffler live score: Updated leaderboard, results, highlights after arrest at PGA Championship

Scottie Scheffler had an eventful second day at the 2024 PGA Championship. And that’s before his morning tee time.

The world No. 1 golfer was headed to the course early Friday morning. There was a heavy police presence and a major traffic backup, and Scheffler attempted to drive around the traffic to reach the Valhalla Golf Club. Police had been on the scene of a fatality in which a pedestrian had been struck and killed by a bus while attempting to cross the street around 5 a.m. ET.

Scheffler attempted to drive around the police on a median, and after being instructed by police to stop, he reportedly continued to drive toward the entrance. An officer attached himself to Scheffler’s car and Scheffler drove for 10 to 20 yards before Scheffler stopped.

Scheffler reportedly told police he did not know they were officers. Scheffler believed they were just security officers, and attempted to explain the miscommunication, but was placed in handcuffs and taken to jail
.

Scheffler was booked in jail at 7:28 a.m. ET, according to Louisville Metropolitan Department of Corrections records. The Kentucky Court of Justice listed the charges faced by Scheffler as second degree assault of a police officer, third degree criminal mischief, reckless driving and disregarding signals from officers directing traffic. The assault of a police officer is considered a Class C felony.

Hole 11, Par 3

Hole 10, Par 5

Shot 3: Scheffler drops a nearly perfect shot onto the green and nearly started his day with another eagle. He’ll have a short putt for birdie to start his second round.
