Later, Scheffler’s lawyer, Pat Forde, weighed in on the situation. 

“Multiple eyewitnesses have confirmed that he did not do anything wrong but was simply proceeding as directed,” Pat wrote on X, formerly Twitter May 17. “He stopped immediately upon being directed to and never at any point assaulted any officer with his vehicle. We will litigate this matter as needed and he will be completely exonerated.”

The second round of the golf tournament, originally set to begin at 7:15 a.m., was delayed due to the crash, instead resuming at 8:35 a.m. Scheffler arrived back at the golf club around 9 a.m., and teed off about an hour later. 

The incident comes amid a whirlwind time for Scheffler as he won the 2024 Masters Tournament at Augusta Golf Club for the second time last month, just weeks before welcoming his first baby with wife Meredith

“I feel like I’m maturing as a person and a player,” he told the Golf Channel shortly after his Masters win. “I think emotionally this has been one of my best weeks on the course.”
