Scottie Scheffler made his fans and audience laugh with one problem that bothered him during the Open Championship at St.Andrews. Namely, Scheffler admitted that he had a problem with ‘infection at the butt crack’ Scheffler didn’t plan to reveal what he had a problem with, but Scottie still decided to tell everyone, considering that he had a problem while playing.
“Yeah, I didn’t ever really plan on telling anybody,” he said for golfdigest.com “It’s kind of one of those things you put on the back burner, and it’s stuff that happens. Guys deal with injuries over the course of the season, and that one popped up at a wrong time for me when I was playing really well”.
Scheffler also revealed how Pilonidal cysts appear and what is the main cause. “Pilonidal cysts usually occur when hair punctures the skin and then becomes embedded. If a pilonidal cyst becomes infected, the resulting abscess is often extremely painful.
The cyst can be drained through a small incision or removed surgically”.
Scottie Scheffler: It was really hard for me
During the tournament, he had a huge problem precisely because of this, but he tried to ignore it and focus on his game.
Considering the pain he was in, Scheffler was really impressive. “It was really hard for me to bend down. It was really hard for me to make a swing on Sunday. Walking was actually extremely difficult, “Scheffler said.
“I don’t know if any of you have ever had something like that, but if you talk to someone that does, it is excruciatingly painful. It was brutal”. In the end, the journalists were interested in how it happened, but Scheffler laughed and did not want to reveal more details. “Yeah, I’m not going to say it here. I’ll tell you after because that would really be TMI”.
