Here are the first 13 PGA Tour winners of the 2021-22 season

Scottie Scheffler didn’t know what to expect for his 2021-22 PGA Tour season.

Scheffler had never won on the PGA Tour before this season, but in February he won in the playoffs at the WM Phoenix Open. Then he won again. And even. And even.

Scheffler, who won four times during his incredible breakout season, was one of the first 13 winners on the PGA Tour this season, but he was arguably the most successful of them all. He also came close to winning the FedEx Cup, had it not been for the final-round heroism of Rory McIlroy.

There has been a first-time winner in more than 25% of PGA Tour events during the 2021-22 season. These wins have come in a major event, a FedEx Cup Playoff event and more.

Here is a look at the first PGA Tour winners of the 2021-22 season:

Talor Gooch has been in the news for other reasons lately, but he won his first PGA Tour event at the RSM Classic in South Carolina in November. Now Gooch plays in the LIV Golf Series and recently attempted to obtain a temporary restraining order against the PGA Tour to play in the FedEx Cup playoffs, but it was not granted.

Since then he has won the Arnold Palmer Invitational, the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play and the Masters. He set a record for most official earnings won in a PGA Tour season.

Fitzpatrick also won the 2013 US Amateur at the Country Club, becoming the second player to win a US Open and a US Amateur on the same course. The other? Jack Nicklaus.
