Interestingly, Wyndham Clark seems to agree with the same, as he expressed his loyalty to the Jay Monahan-led circuit a while back. Well, if he is to achieve the best in the world rankings, who else can he beat other than Scottie Scheffler?

“I ultimately want to chase being the best that I can be,” said Clark in a talk with Drew Stoltz and Andres Gonzales on the SiriusXM PGA Tour Radio when asked about his goals. Divulging more about the same, he said, “I would love to try and get to No. 1,” before going ahead to dub dethroning Scheffler as his “career goal,” even if it was just for “one week or one day.”
Adding on, he confessed how he doesn’t “look at the rankings that much,” while admitting how “awesome” it was to move up to No. 6 from the 10th spot on the OWGR following his recent win. “I really just want to control what I can control,” revealed the athlete while alluding to his mind and his preparation while hoping to win more events and “getting to world No. 1.”
Currently, at 272.68352 points, the 30-year-old is 144.44372 behind the 2022 Masters Tournament champ, who has figures of 417.12724. That’s a long road ahead. Nevertheless, Clark was not discouraged at all as he expressed his hope of being the “best,” be it “this year or… two years or… never.”
