Golf WAG gives behind-the-scenes look at how players should arrive at tournaments... after Scottie Scheffler's shock arrest at the PGA Championship

Tony Finau's wife Alayna filmed herself 'taxi-ing' the golfer to a tournament Last week, Scottie Scheffler was arrested attempting to enter Valhalla MORE: Cops 'believe Scheffler's charges are excessive and should be REDUCED' 

Tony Finau's wife Alayna has given a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at life for players and their families during PGA Tour events - including their routine for arriving at the course.

It comes just a week after Scottie Scheffler's attempt to enter Valhalla ended with the world No 1 in jail facing four charges including a felony - second-degree assault of a police officer.

Scheffler is accused of dragging a cop to the floor and failing to stop as he tried to get into the course ahead of the second round of the PGA Championship.

The world No 1 was driving a courtesy car, which are given to players for every tournament and are supposed to ensure 'easy access' in and out of the course.

But a 'huge misunderstanding' instead ensued, with cops apparently unaware who was driving the vehicle.

Finau, the world No 30, has become accustomed to the routines and rhythms of tournament week, having joined the PGA Tour in 2015.

And in short video, posted on TikTok on Wednesday, his wife Alyna explained the value of players being given marked cars ahead of tournaments.

'Besides the fact that it's free and it gets us around, we're very, very grateful for it,' she said.

'So each week, there are different car sponsorships that provide the courtesy car. We dub it "Dad's Car" every week because it has an official vehicle sticker and these stickers.

'Once seen by security or police when rolling up to the golf course - they're like: "Bro, you're good to go. You have the right of passage. Then we can take the player right up to the golf course, easy access."

The video included a clip of the official cars players were given for the PGA Championship, when Scheffler's journey to the first tee took an unfortunate detour.

The world No 1 was driving himself to the clubhouse but Alayna lifted the lid on life as a taxi driver for her husband during tournament week.

'Someone will have to wake up at the butt crack of dawn - or whatever the tee time may be - and drop off their player in the courtesy car,' she said.

'Normally, the night before I'll be like: "Ok honey, here's the plan. I'm going to wake up early, I'm going to take you in the courtesy car, then I'll be back."

'I might go home and take a little nap, I might be back before you tee off. I might be back at the turn. I might actually be back in six hours when the round is done. But I'll be there.

'A lot of times, I'm usually taxi-ing family members in and out of the course in the courtesy car or I'm catering to my kids.' They have five children together - Jraice, Leilene "Neenee" Aiaga, Tony Sage and Sienna-Vee.

'But either way, it's really nice because we pull up right by the clubhouse, easy access to get in and out and this is how it works for players, family members. So we're very grateful. Thank you.'
