Here's Video of Scottie Scheffler Being Detained at the PGA Championship

Scheffler was involved in a misunderstanding while driving into the course on Friday.

Top-ranked player Scottie Scheffler was detained after what is being characterized as a "misunderstanding" with police Friday morning outside of Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville where the PGA Championship is being held.

ESPN's Jeff Darlington, who has been shadowing the Masters champion this week, detailed the incident in a shocking early-morning post on X, formerly Twitter, which occurred when Scheffler tried to drive past a police officer amid a heavy traffic delay.

In an appearance on SportsCenter in which he looked a bit shaken up about what he had just witnessed, Darlington tried to put into words just how quickly this situation escalated and how surprising it was to see Scheffler, both one of the most famous and mild-mannered players in the major's field, taken away in handcuffs. He also just provided video from the scene in which a police officer says "right now, he's going to jail and it ain't nothing you can do about it."

Second round action at Valhalla has been delayed over an hour and will begin at 8:35 a.m. Scheffler, who fired a 67 on Thursday to put himself in predictable contention, was originally scheduled to tee off at 8:48 a.m. That's now been moved to 10:08 a.m.
