Quick Quotes

Q. What do you think of the news?

SCOTTIE SCHEFFLER: I was walking off 18. I wasn't really thinking about anything other than just going to sign my card, just get off the green. I saw Hospel was there and I didn't think twice about it and we get into scoring and he's standing in there and Jon looked very frustrated, which I thought was weird, so I kind of smiled at him thinking, I was, like, why, what happened? I was already inside. I didn't see any activity on the green, so I kind of smiled at him just to see and, I mean, he just goes, Good luck tomorrow, and, I'm, like, Thanks, man. You play good too. I was just really confused. He's, like, No, man, I just tested positive. My heart just sank. It's terrible that that happened. I think it's terrible they told him in front of the cameras. I just, my heart is still, it just sinks for him. I just feel awful. I don't know what the protocols are or how everything works, but I don't know how he tested positive after the third round and I don't know how they didn't tell him sooner considering he probably tested 10, 12 hours ago. So I don't know exactly how it works and my heart sinks for him and I feel terrible and I just, I'm really confused.

Q. Were you at all, I mean, now that you know all this, are you at all concerned or had you been around him much or?


Q. Were you vaccinated?

SCOTTIE SCHEFFLER: Yeah, we played golf outside in the sunlight and everything, I don't feel very concerned. I had COVID. I'm not going to say whether or not I got vaccinated. I had COVID in the fall and, I mean, I still feel great. I mean, I -- yeah, no.
