Fans' Shocked by Massive Earnings of Golf Champion's Caddie

Scottie Scheffler has had a historic PGA Tour season. He's on pace to break the record for most money made in a single season. Through the PGA season, Scheffler has made nearly $28 million.

This makes him the highest-paid golfer in the organization. It also makes his caddie, Ted Scott, the highest-paid aide in the PGA. Scott has reportedly earned $2.63 million from Scheffler's tour winnings, per Barstool Gambling.

The No. 1 golfer in the world has six tournament wins this season. He's the first player to achieve this before July 1st since Arnold Palmer in 1962, per The Athletic.

Scheffler has been with Scott since 2021. Since then, the duo has dominated the professional golf scene.

Scheffler's career earnings are estimated to be around $70 million. This is through his 12 PGA Tour victories.

His caddie's earnings don't compare to others around the tour. Through the 2024 season, he's making more money than three-time major winner Jordan Spieth.

Fans reacted to the caddie's earnings on social media. They shared their initial thoughts on the news.

Scott and Scheffler will have a chance to add to their purse in the Scottish Open in July.
