If Scheffler were to win this weekend, he would regain the No. 1 world ranking over Rory McIlroy.

"It definitely matters to me," Scheffler said Wednesday, via Yahoo Sports. "I don't let a ranking define what I think of myself as a player. It was definitely fun being No. 1 in the world and it's something I hope to get back to, but all my motivation's always been internal. I'm a crazy, crazy competitive person, so for me, I haven't really needed much outward focus to kind of get motivated to come out and play. If anything, I need to tone myself down a little bit and just let things go and kind of just go out and play."

Finau failed to make the cut in his first tournament of the season, at the Mayakoba Golf Classic in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. Toward the end of last season, Finau won back-to-back tournaments for the first time, the 3M Open followed by the Rocket Mortgage Classic.

Tony Finau and Scottie Scheffler asserted themselves as two of the best players in the world last season, and bettors are expecting them to continue that trend this weekend at the Cadence Bank Houston Open.
