The world’s No. 1 Scottie Scheffler ranks 135th in Stokes Gained: Putting. Rory McIlroy ranks 84th.

Despite their struggles with flat-sticks, both players won two times in the 2022-2023 season: Scheffler, at the Players and WM Phoenix Open; McIlroy, at the CJ Cup and Scottish Open.

The total wins could increase if you perform well on the greens. Scheffler has finished in the top five or higher at seven consecutive events, from AT&T Byron Nelson through to Scottish Open. McIlroy has seven consecutive finishes of T-9 and better.

The season could bring four or five victories for either player.

The two top players in the World arrived at TPC Southwind, Memphis, Tennessee for the FedEx St. Jude Championship. This is the first event in the playoffs. They were seen practicing with different putters.

McIlroy played his practice round on Tuesday with a Scotty Cameron Phantom 5.

The Northern Irishman used an old Scotty at the WGC Dell Match Play in March, but switched to his TaylorMade Spider X soon after.

Scheffler changed the bag at the U.S. Open by putting in a Scotty Cameron with a larger body.

McIlroy will be joined by Scheffler and Rahm for the first two round in Memphis. The trio will tee off at 10:26 am on Thursday. ET.
