Scottie Scheffler shot a 3-under 72 in the final round of The Players Championship at Sawgrass on Sunday to secure a five-shot victory over Tyrrell Hatton on Sunday.

However, as his golf game delighted fans over the weekend, it was Scheffler’s grandmother, Mary, who won hearts and minds. The 88-year-old walked every hole in all four rounds of the tournament.
The PGA Tour shared a video of Mary on the drive making sure to follow every move her grandson made, doing something even the other golfers didn’t get a chance to do.

He claimed the $4.5 million prize for the win. He now has six wins in his last 27 PGA Tour starts, including four wins he had last year capped off by his Masters victory.
