If you think Scottie Scheffler hasn’t won “enough” during the 2022-23 PGA Tour, you’ll probably say that the 27-year-old Texan “squandered” another title at the BMW Championship despite shooting a closing 66. But here’s the thing: Was there really any stopping Viktor Hovland on Sunday at Olympia Fields?

With 10 birdies, including seven on the final nine holes for a back-nine 28, the 25-year-old from Norway rallied with a course-record 61 to pass Scheffler and win the second leg of the PGA Tour Playoffs by two shots over Scheffler and Matt Fitzpatrick with a 17-under 263.

When Hovland finished his round, Scheffler trailed by one with two holes to play. But a bogey on 17 and a par on 18 left him with “only” his 16th top-10 finish in 22 starts this season.

If there’s a consolation for Scheffler, he still jumped to No. 1 in the FedEx Cup points standings, and put himself in a prime spot to win the title next week at the Tour Championship that slipped through his fingers a year ago.

Being the No. 1 seed means Scheffler will have a two-shot advantage on Hovland, now No. 2 in the FedEx Cup points standings, and a 10-shot edge on the final five players in the 30-man field when play starts at East Lake. This was the case a year ago, too, with Scheffler held a six-shot lead heading into the final round only to stumble home and watch Rory McIlroy walk off with the win, the FedEx Cup and the $18 million bonus. Needless to say, Scheffler hopes to make up for those mistakes this time around.
