Scottie Scheffler will be oozing with confidence when he tees off at the Genesis Open which will be played in Pacific Palisades, California, USA.
The American golfer won the most recent tournament on the 2021-2022 PGA Tour which was the Waste Management Phoenix Open. 
Scheffler was crowned champion after he won the third hole of a sudden-death playoff against his compatriot Patrick Cantlay.

This was the New Jersey-born golfer's first win on the PGA Tour having started playing in America's main professional golf tours in 2020.
Scheffler finished tied for fourth at the 2020 PGA Championship and he won $528,000 in prize money in the tournament, and he was named PGA Tour Rookie of the Year.
The Korn Ferry Tour Player of the Year played on the US team in the 2021 Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin. 
The US team won 19-9 and Scheffler went 2–0–1 including a win in his Sunday singles match against world number one Jon Rahm.

“This is a lot of hard work,” Scheffler said after he won the Phoenix Open. 
“We worked really hard for this and I am so appreciative. It’s such a great place and such a fun week. I am very pleased.
"Patrick [Cantlay] is obviously a phenomenal player, and I knew one of us was going to have to make a birdie," he continued.
"Par wasn't going to do it. This is a really hard tee ball for me. It's hard for me to get it in play, so I knew if I had an opportunity I really had to take advantage of it."
Macdonald Smith and Lloyd Mangrum are the most decorated players in the history of the Genesis Open having won the title four times each.
