Scottie Scheffler live updates: World No 1 starts round despite arrest for assault of a police officer at PGA Championship

Ian Poulter, LIV golfer and three-time PGA Tour winner, on X:

💬 “So bizarre hearing the Scottie Scheffler chaos. This is crazy. We as players at multiple tournaments every year are told during traffic around the venue to put hazard lights on and proceed to the venue.

“This is as simple as a misunderstanding. And clearly all will be dropped. The End. Hope he goes and plays well now today.”

Graeme McDowell, LIV golfer and 2010 US Open champion and four-time PGA Tour winner, on X:

💬 “Most tour players can relate to trying to navigate around traffic getting into courses at massive tournaments (and no, not a problem we have at LIV events much )(yes, because we don’t get large crowds yet). I’d imagine the police were on high alert with the fatality, assuming timing was similar.

“Emotions would have been running high. Crazy stuff. If he shoots 65 today just go ahead and give him the trophy.”
