Nailed It

This Korn Ferry Tour volunteer volunteer predicted Scottie Scheffler's Masters win—three years ago

April 13, 2022

There were plenty of people who picked Scottie Scheffler to win the 2022 Masters. After all, he was arriving at Augusta National as the World No. 1 and on an absolute heater. Heck, one guy even bet on a Scheffler-Cam Smith exacta (ouch). But a Korn Ferry Tour volunteer takes top honors when it comes to Masters predictions this year—because his didn't even come this year.

The mystery man actually declared Scheffler would win a green jacket nearly three years ago after he claimed his first pro win at the 2019 Evans Scholar Invitational. Scheffler was only 22 and less than a year out of college, but this dude saw something special in the young player. And couldn't resist blurting out his prediction as Scheffler signed a cooler—a KFT winning tradition—following his win. Have a look and listen:

Boom. Nailed it. OK, who is this guy? Please track him down because he can see the future. And we'd like to know if he's spotted any other future major champs . . .

Anyway, a tip of the cap to you, sir. And whoever you are, hopefully, you made a few bucks off Scottie's win as well.
