Based on the description of what happened that's floating around on twitter, Scottie is very likely to be charged at least one felony. Possibly more.

How is this still going on???

EDIT: Thanks for the edit on the charges @DeadMan. Seems like there's more to the story. I am going to refrain from jumping on the cop bashing bandwagon, until we know more.

In the hypothetical case of a right hander: Is the rope here a TIO anyway? I would think they could displace it sufficiently should an opportunity have risen, yes? 

Ropes are usually "M" not "I".

As for the other stuff… is this just Scottie showing that his recognition factor is still remarkably low given his play on the golf course?

Shitty situation any way you slice it.

Crazy thing for sure.  It's still real early to jump to conclusions.

The charge list looks pretty intimidating and the 2nd-degree assault charge especially so.  It wouldn't surprise me if some of these charges are dropped once the dust settles. 

Still, Darlington's description does make it sound like Scheffler is going to have some issues going forward.

I guess I missed it but what did he do with respect to getting a 2nd degree charge against a police officer?

Reports are saying the officer jumped onto his car. So he assaulted the officer with his car, that the officer voluntarily jumped on top of.

His recognition factor may be even lower if he has to play in that orange jumpsuit. May be mistaken for Rickie Fowler.😉

I read this story yesterday about Scottie, interesting to read something a little different than the standard coverage about him. If you have NYT or Athletic access. 


Scheffler has worked to tame his inner competitive fire but those who've seen it up close have...

Yep. 

If a vehicle is even moving at 25 mph, that covers 37-FT in one second, or 10 yards in one second. It is highly probable that Scottie didn't have time to react, and ended up driving further than what the cop probably deemed acceptable and thought Scottie was trying to run him over. 

The fact is, the cop should not have put themselves in that position to begin with. 

Edit. I didn't even calculate the stop distance needed (when Scottie hits the brakes). That 10 yards is if he never slowed down. Human reaction time is about .25 seconds, maybe longer when it is 5AM.

Scottie's stuff was at 6am. He should have been able to react in 0.31 seconds at worst.

With the limited information it sounds like both sides, Scottie and the police, handled the situation poorly. Scottie not realizing his recognition factor is low as he’s quite the dud, and the officer being way too aggressive in the situation. 
Jumping in/on the car was an asinine move by the cop. Scottie trying to get around the stop before getting assistance was a bone head move as well.

It’s Louisville, so from living here  in Kentucky for 28 years, it doesn’t surprise me.. lucky he didn’t get tazed.. Not saying scottie is in the right,  just guessing it escalated quickly. And this is why I stay in Lexington:-)

Well put.

If Scottie is a proper thug, then he is going to light up the course today.

They (DA) will work out a plea deal, probation, pay a chunk of money that sort of thing. LPD/ State of KY only see this as a payday. Seems like a situation that escalated way further than it should have by both parties, Scotties anxious to get to the course, rainy, traffic confusion. Cop probably has a fat wife who's cheating on him so he's pissed off. Lose-lose situation.

Damn. Will he have to DQ?

I wonder if that would have happened if it was Tiger.

Edit: He’s apparently released from custody.

Nah. He's teed off. 

Kind of wish I were somewhere I could watch it.

    • My boss, out of the blue yesterday, asked me if it ever gets too hot for me to play. I've played in 112* in Phoenix before. Fairly frequently play in mid-90s in NY. Those days are worse than the 112 in Phoenix. I said no. But I'll play in anything. I've played in sleet, snow, hail (one time it hailed on us while blowing a steady 45mph gusting to 55mph - as verified by an anemometer in the clubhouse), torrential rain, high winds, cold, hot, you name it.  Lightning will get me off the golf course though. I'm not an idiot (well, not that much of one anyway).
    • I'm an all weather golfer. Luckily in my part of the Bay Area, it never get's much hotter than mid-70s, and the only humidity fog, so I don't have to deal with hot and humid weather. Most of the year I only have time to play once a week, and it's my weekly psychological break from the daily experience of work/parenthood so I hate to miss it. The only thing that really gives me pause is high winds, because my home course has tons of trees, and quite a few are diseased/dying. Often times when I am out playing and the weather is really shitty I will momentarily question my decision to play, but I rarely regret it.
    • I can't really vote. I'll play in 50° if it's even a little sunny and not pouring. I'll play in 90°. I generally won't play when it's pouring, ridiculously windy, or > 100° or below about 40°.
