One of Scottie Scheffler’s main rivals for the PGA Championship crown had a hilarious reaction to the golfer’s arrest outside Valhalla Golf Club.

Scheffler was the talk of the golf world when a major championship took place this weekend in Louisville, Kentucky.

Scheffler is the No. 1 golfer in the world and returned to competition for the first time since the birth of his son. The attention on him only increased after Friday’s incident when he tried to enter the venue.

Scheffler was held for about three hours and stretched from a jail cell before the second round of the PGA Championship.

It was rival Mark Hubbard who went to

Hubbard is still in contention for the PGA Championship despite shooting a two-over par on Saturday, making his total seven under par for the tournament.

Scheffler and Hubbard both started Saturday at nine under par and dropped 20 places in the rankings to start the final round tied for 24th.

They are both eight shots clear of co-leaders Collin Morikawa and Xander Schauffele at 15 under par.

Hubbard has four professional victories as a golfer, but none of them came on the PGA Tour.

Sunday will likely mark Hubbard’s best-ever finish at a major tournament, with his previously best finish coming at the 2020 PGA Championship, where he finished in 51st place.

Scheffler has been charged almost £200 at previous PGA events, with some on social media suggesting the £30 less charge came straight from his driving licence.

That would mean Scheffler likely weighed that amount during his late teens.
