All About Scottie Scheffler’s Son, Bennett

The professional golfer welcomed his firstborn child, son Bennett, with his wife Meredith amid the PGA Championship Tour in May 2024.

Scheffler, who is currently ranked No. 1 in the world, had been open about becoming a first-time dad in the weeks leading up to his son’s birth. “I really can’t put into words what it means to be a father for the first time,” he told reporters of the major milestone in April

At the time, Scheffler noted that he’d withdraw from the Master’s Tournament at Augusta National Golf Club on April 14 in Augusta, Ga. if his wife went into labor. That fortunately wasn’t the case, allowing him to secure another big win.

Scheffler went home to be with his wife when she gave birth and witnessed the arrival of his baby firsthand. Days later, he returned to play in the tournament at Valhalla Golf Club and shared with Golf Channel’s Todd Lewis the emotions he was feeling as a new dad.

“I had pretty high expectations of what I would feel like… and those are far exceeded,” he began. “It’s a pretty amazing feeling,” he added, though he admitted it was “challenging” to leave home and compete.

Welcome to the world little one. Your mom & dad love you so much,” he captioned the post, giving his followers a glimpse of the newborn swaddled in white as the first-time dad cradled him in his arms.

News that Scheffler and his wife were expecting came after Meredith debuted her baby bump at the Arnold Palmer Invitational — which he won — in early March.

“It’s going to be pretty wild. I don’t think it’s hit either of us quite yet, maybe sometime when the baby is moving around in her stomach a bunch, but it’s an exciting time for us as a family,” Scheffler told PGA Tour Sirius/XM Radio, via Golf Week.

He added, “It’s been a pretty exciting last seven months or so and we’re looking forward to hopefully getting the baby out of there nice and healthy and with a healthy momma and then we’ll go from there.”
