Scottie Scheffler Wins The Masters


Running April 11-14th, the Masters tournament finished off its last round this previous Sunday (April 14) with Scottie Scheffler taking first place with a score of 11 under. Scheffler, who is currently ranked #1 in the world for men’s golf and has maintained that position for over 80 weeks, won a sum of $3.6 million and a second green jacket after beating out golfers from around the world for the #1 position in the tournament. This marked Scheffler’s second Masters win, as he previously finished first in 2022 at Augusta National. Scheffler’s Sunday win already brings his total golf winnings to over $15 million through only his first nine events of the year, with further successes likely throughout the rest of the season.

By his side since their 2022 Masters win, Ted Scott once again caddied for Scheffler, aiding in the pair’s second Masters win together. Scott, who previously caddied for Bubba Watson, ranks among the top caddies at the Masters with a total of 4 Masters wins alongside his golfers. The veteran caddie has caddied for 16 PGA Tour wins and has been by Scheffler’s side since Bubba Watson’s retirement in 2022. Scheffler and Scott have repeatedly publicly shared their admiration for one another and, after his win on Sunday, Scheffler insisted Scott take their victory walk together.

Despite ultimately winning by a relatively large margin, Scheffler began the tournament in second, before moving into the lead on the second day; although he was tied with Bryson DeChambeau and Max Homa in that position until Scheffler moved one stroke ahead on the third day. In the end, Scheffler pulled away to win, while Ludvig Aberg of Sweden placed 2nd at 7 under, and Max Homa, Collin Morikawa, and Tommy Fleetwood faced a three-way tie for 3rd at 4 under. 

Scheffler’s win came at a hectic and exciting time in his life as his wife is due to have their first baby very soon; this meant that she was unfortunately not able to attend the event to support her husband, but after the tournament ended, Scheffler made sure to tell his wife “I love you sweetheart” and that he would try to get home to be with her “as soon as I can.” During the tournament, Scheffler also commented on his wife’s pregnancy and upcoming due date by saying he was “ready to go at a moment’s notice,” despite his considerable lead, in the unlikely event she were to go into labor. Luckily, he was able to finish off the tournament with a win and quickly return to Dallas for the upcoming birth of his first child.

Overall, congratulations to Scottie Scheffler on his exciting Masters success, and the best of luck to him as a soon-to-be parent.
