Scottie Scheffler strolls to Masters win as Rory McIlroy enjoys late surge into second

Written by on April 12, 2022

World no 1 Scottie Scheffler can now call himself a major champion after winning the 2022 US Masters at Augusta.

He started the day with a three shot lead over Cameron Smith, but after the Australian’s challenge perished with a disastrous triple bogey on the 12th, the unflappable Scheffler kept his composure to eventually win by three from runner-up Rory McIlroy.

The victory makes it four tournament wins for the American this year, and ultimately cements his status at the top of the rankings. And the manner in which he secured his first green jacket suggests he has the quality, and temperament, to challenge for major titles for years to come.
