Scottie Scheffler drives to the Masters victory, the first major title
Masters Sunday lived up to expectations with spectacular performances from each of the last two pairings, but no one could overcome the dominant play of world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler as he secured his first green jacket.
The 25-year-old Scheffler shot 1-under for a 71 in the final round and finished 10-under at Sunday’s Augusta National, the culmination of four strong rounds for the American. Scheffler shot a 69 in the first round, a 67 in the second, and a 71 in the third. It was Scheffler’s first win in a major championship.
Rory McIlroy, who hit a stunning bunker shot on the 18th hole to close out the final round on a 64 – a shot short of the tournament record – finished second with 7-under.
Cameron Smith, who was in the last pairing with Scheffler, finished the tournament 5-under and shared third place with Shane Lowry after a rocky 1-over final round with a double bogey on 12 as the Aussie’s lowlight.
