Ted Scott will never forget the 2024 Masters. The caddie for Scottie Scheffler went to social media to post a video of him sleeping with the Masters pin flag to celebrate Scheffler’s win. Scott has now earned four Masters titles in his career, becoming to fifth caddie to reach that mark.

“I’m pinching myself. I don’t know how I get to do this,” Scott said on Sunday, per Golf Digest. “I don’t really know what I’m seeing. The guy is special. He’s a different kind of special. I think we’re all seeing it, and we’re all questioning where did this come from?

“I’ve just been very fortunate that great people will take me on as their caddie. I’ve worked for some incredible golfers. Scottie is just added to the list, and now it’s just incredible to be a part of it. I’m just very fortunate.”

What to know about Ted Scott

Scott is one of the top caddies on the PGA Tour. He helped Scheffler win the Masters in 2022 and was also the caddie to Bubba Watson when he won the Masters in 2012 and 2014. Scott became Scheffler’s caddie before the 2022 season after winning 10 events and two majors with Watson.

“I have no regrets, and I don’t think he does either,” Watson said of their split in 2022, per Golf.com. “[Scott] has made more money now without me. He needed 10 more years. I haven’t told anybody, but I had some struggles this offseason. Wrote a book about some struggles. My wrist, I had a wrist injury all last year. Had some PRP (platelet-rich plasma injections).

“So I called him and told him. I said, look, man, I’m 43 years old. I don’t know what I’m going to do. My wrist is killing me. He is like he needs 10 more years, and I gave him — I felt like a nice retirement package when we split up, but we split up mutually.”

After this year’s Masters, Scheffler praised Scott for guiding him all four rounds. “I was very focused out there today. I felt like I did a really good job,” Scheffler said. “Teddy did a great job of making sure that we kept the golf course in front of us. I didn’t get off to the best start, but I had some key up-and-downs, and Teddy once again did a great job of keeping me in it.”
