something we’ve never seen

Scottie Scheffler and Nelly Korda are chasing history this weekend.


After Nelly Korda won last week’s Seri Pak Championship, she celebrated in proper West Coast fashion.

“A nice In-N-Out burger and Animal Fries,” she said with a smile. It wasn’t a particularly glamorous celebration — the burger stop came as she and fellow pro Olivia Cowan were splitting the six-hour drive to Gilbert, Ariz., for this week’s Ford Championship — but it did the trick.

“Yeah, it was nice,” she said from Arizona, reflecting at a pre-tournament press conference.

Scottie Scheffler knows about celebrating with cheeseburgers. We don’t have confirmation on his Players Championship celebration two weeks ago, but in a 2022 interview with GOLF, Scheffler explained that when he wins, he celebrates at Burger House, a fast-food chain in Dallas — plus he served cheeseburger sliders, “Scottie-style,” at his Masters Champions dinner. (And when he misses the cut he gets Burger House, too, as a pick-me-up.)

But it’s not just beef that binds the two. Korda’s latest win got her back to No. 1. Scheffler’s latest win ensured he’ll stay at No. 1 for a while. And this week they’re chasing an intriguing bit of golf history.
