Scottie Scheffler's caddie is BANNED by Twitter... but why?!

Ted Scott Twitter Account

Plaudits have (rightly) been pouring in for Ted Scott after the experienced caddie helped guide Scottie Scheffler to Masters victory on Sunday.

Scott, who was on the bag for Bubba Watson when he triumphed at Augusta in 2012 and 2014, has been looping for Scheffler since the start of the current PGA Tour season.

It's a partnership that has paid off handsomely for both men.

Scott has helped transform Scheffler from one of the best players yet to win on the tour into a four-time winner and Masters champion. In turn, he has earned close to $1million (assuming he is paid in the region of 10% for his efforts).

Why is Ted Scott banned by Twitter?

A once-prolific user of the social media platform, Scott's account is currently offline.

Here's what you currently see if you try to view his page...

It has been this way for several months now, much to the bemusement of Golf Twitter...

Nobody appears to know exactly why Scott's account has been suspended, albeit different theories have been suggested.

Whatever the reason, Scott continues maintains at least some kind of a presence on social media through his Instagram account. 

And judging by his latest post, he seems to be loving life...
