Scottie Scheffler brought autographs - and even a cake - to fans waiting for him in Connecticut.

Fans waited outside the TPC River Highlands clubhouse for a chance to see and get an autograph from World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler.

They got something in return from the best golfer on the planet, who was celebrating his birthday Friday while playing in the Travelers Championship.

After the day was delayed due to bad weather, fans stayed and shouted with joy when they saw him approaching with a box in his hand.

‘How was the cake?’ a fan shouted at the golfer, who was walking his newborn son in a stroller.

‘You can keep it… We’re not going to eat it, I had a piece inside (and) they gave me the whole cake,’ Scheffler responded.

Scheffler only ate a slice before handing the cake to fans and signing the box.

Just to make sure they knew he wasn’t joking, Scheffler said, “Take the cake, seriously.”

Fans even got Scheffler to sign the cake box, as well as a random Dominos pizza box amidst the typical hats and photos taken.

It was a kind gift from the tournament organizers to give Scheffler a cake from a local bakery, specifically Mozzicato’s in nearby Hartford, to help him celebrate his 28th birthday.

So far at the Travelers, Scheffler has gone 65-64 to put himself at 11 under par for the tournament.

He is just two shots behind fellow birthday celebrant Tom Kim, who sits atop the standings at 13 under for the tournament.
