Even though Riley went into the final round with a strong lead over Scheffler, he never counts out the No. 1 ranked golfer in the world.

Riley was ranked 250th and 151st in the FedExCup entering the Charles Schwab Challenge. He told reporters on May 25, “When you got Scottie breathing down your neck, you can’t really let up any. I know it’s going to be tough. I know it’s going to be a fun day.

“It’s a golf course. You just got to put yourself in position and then you can be aggressive. So, I’m just going to hit honestly as many fairways as possible and just try to continue some good iron game.”

Riley and Scheffler have known each other for a long time. The two met at the final match of the 2013 U.S. Junior Amateur Championship at Martis Camp Club in Truckee, California. The PGA Tour reported, “Scheffler won that match, 3 and 2, after Riley called a one-stroke penalty on himself after his ball moved as he addressed a birdie putt on the 16th hole. The resulting bogey ended the match.”

Riley told reporters of the Junior competition, “He got the best of me there. We’ll see if we can re-write the script a little bit.”

On Sunday, Riley finished at 14 under and five in front of Scheffler and Keegan Bradley. After winning the Charles Schwab Challenge, Riley is now ranked 55th.
