U.S. Open 2024: Scottie Scheffler got a haircut before his first round—and Golf Twitter had jokes

June 13, 2024

The World No. 1 arrived at Pinehurst No. 2 on Thursday with a fresh haircut. And people were talking. Oh, they were talking.

Scottie Scheffler showed up to his first-round tee time with his head mowed more closely than Pinehurst's slick greens. Not surprisingly, Golf Twitter pounced with plenty of jokes about the new do.

Before we get to those, here's what Scheffler's hair (underneath his cap) looked like on Wednesday:

Pretty standard. Maybe getting a little scraggly, especially the sideburns, but nothing too crazy. However, with temps in the 90s in North Carolina this week, maybe Scheffler wanted a little less fur (he also shed the beard he's been rocking of late). In any matter, he visited Monti the Barber on the eve of the tournament:


Love that U.S. Open barber cape, by the way. And here's how it turned out:

Interesting. Now, we're sure Monti does a nice job. He posted photos with several other players this week, including Tiger Woods, so he's a trusted barber. But Scottie's extra high-and-tight look was certainly drawing looks on Thursday:

Tough crowd. Scottie even getting dunked on by a fellow Masters champ! But . . . they kind of have a point. Although, nothing will ever top Rickie Fowler's Olympics haircut. For our money, though, given Scheffler's run-in with the law at the last major, here was our favorite reaction:

Boom, roasted. And butchered. Sorry, Scottie. Anyway, while the USGA will continue to mow the rest of this week, Sccheffler should be good for the rest of the summer.
