COLUMBUS, Ohio — Scottie Scheffler won the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship, closing with a 4-under 67 for a two-stroke victory in the Korn Ferry Tour Finals opener.
Scheffler finished at 12-under 272 on Ohio State University Golf Club’s Scarlet Course. The former University of Texas player won the Evans Scholars Invitational in May and finished third on the Korn Ferry Tour’s regular-season money list to earn a PGA Tour card for next season. Scheffler earned $180,000.
Brendon Todd (67), Beau Hossler (68) and Ben Taylor (68) tied for second. Defending champion Robert Streb (66) and Brandon Hagy (71) followed at 9 under.
The players who have yet to earn PGA Tour cards are fighting for 25 spots based on their finishes in the four-event Finals standings.
