World number one Scottie Scheffler (10/1 Fav PGA Championship Outright) is happy for Tiger Woods to take the focus and insists he isn’t feeling any extra pressure ahead of this week’s PGA Championship at Southern Hills Country Club.

Scheffler hadn’t won a PGA Tour event prior to 2022 but he heads to Oklahoma seeking his fifth victory after a remarkable start to the year.

The 25-year-old’s breakthrough success came at the WM Phoenix Open before adding titles at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, WGC-Technologies Match Play, which propelled him to the top of the rankings, before winning The Masters last month.

Many are tipping Scheffler to further bolster his growing reputation this week, however, the American claims he isn’t allowing the extra expectation to play on his mind, especially with four-time winner Tiger Woods (75/1 PGA Championship Outright) in the field.

“Tiger’s here so nobody really remembers that I’m here, so it’s all good,” Scheffler said. “I don’t feel any different. I don’t get any extra shots this week.

“It’s nice to have the ranking, but at the end of the day when I show up at a tournament, I don’t have any advantages over the field other than we all start even par. For me, it’s a tremendous honour, but at the end of the day when I show up to a tournament, I’m starting at even.”

Scheffler finished fourth on his PGA Championship debut at Harding Park in 2020 and he was eighth at Kiawah Island last year.

He’s set to partner fellow major champions Jon Rahm (12/1 PGA Championship Outright) and Collin Morikawa (20/1), who sit second and third respectively in the rankings, over the first two rounds at the PGA Championship.
