He does not shy from criticism if he feels it is warranted.

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Scottie Scheffler wanted to be a professional golfer for so long he wore trousers to lessons at Royal Oaks in Dallas and even at junior tournaments, no matter how stifling the Texas heat.
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Jon Rahm lost his match and still made it to the weekend. Scottie Scheffler needed only 14 holes to win his match against Matt Fitzpatrick, and then six more to beat him in a playoff.

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Torrey Pines has had its share of conflict over the years involving some of the top players in golf. Just not during such a taxing major as the U.S. Open.
Think back to 2003 at the Buick Invitational when Phil Mickelson was quoted in a magazine interview as saying Tiger Woods played with inferior equipment and was the only player good enough to overcome “the equipment he's stuck with.”
The last time Patrick Reed teed it up at Torrey Pines, he had to dodge yet another rules controversy before hoisting the trophy at the Farmers Insurance Open.
Now he’s got an Open of a different magnitude in front of him.

KAPALUA, Hawaii (AP) — Justin Thomas won the Sentry Tournament of Champions, and he still doesn't know how.

KAPALUA, Hawaii (AP) — The only thing that resembled paradise to Xander Schauffele at Kapalua was his name atop the leaderboard Friday at the Sentry Tournament of Champions...
