Congrats to Scottie and Meredith Scheffler on the birth of their first child. With the new baby delivered safe and sound, the world’s No. 1 player should be competing next week at the PGA Championship.

Sports Illustrated golf writer Bob Harig reported this news, Saturday, although with a caveat.

Harig shared the news on X Saturday afternoon. He wrote “there’s been nothing official from Scottie Scheffler, his team or the Tour… But word is he will be at Valhalla for the PGA next week after winning four of his last five tournaments, including the Masters. He is currently on the Tuesday interview schedule for 3:30 p.m.” Harig also used the hahtag #babyborn
