Scottie Scheffler was born in Ridgewood, New Jersey but moved to Dallas, Texas . He played golf and basketball at Highland Park High School and later played college golf at the University of Texas from 2014 to 2018, where he helped the team win three Big 12 championships and was named “Phil Mickelson Freshman of the Year” in 2015. Before his time at UT, he won the 2013 U.S. Junior Amateur. He was also part of the U.S. team that won the 2017 Walker Cup.

In 2016, Scheffler qualified for his first U.S. Open. He opened with a first round 69, but would shoot a second round 78 to miss the cut by one stroke. Again in 2017, Scheffler qualified for the U.S. Open after surviving a 4-for-3 playoff to earn a spot in the field. He and Cameron Champ were the only two amateurs to make the cut at the 2017 U.S. Open. Scheffler finished as low amateur at 1-under-par, one stroke ahead of Champ.
