AUGUSTA, GA (AP) – World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler claimed his first major championship with a win at the 86th Masters. It’s his fourth victory in his last six starts on the PGA TOUR.
Birdies on 14 and 15 pushed the lead to five before a double-bogey at the last dropped the winning margin to three.
A tee shot into Rae’s Creek on the 12th hole from Cameron Smith was the final blow to the Australian’s Green Jacket chances. He’d make triple bogey to fall six shots behind Scheffler heading to the 13th tee.
Scheffler posted a bogey-free 34 on the front nine to reach 11 under for the tournament before a bogey at No. 10 dropped him back a shot with eight holes to go.
Scheffler’s front nine included an epic chip-in for birdie on the par-4 third hole to restore some breathing room after Smith had drawn within one shot of the lead with birdies on each of his two holes.
The round of the day came from Rory McIlroy who capped off an 8-under 64 with a bunker hole-out for birdie on the 18th.
Tiger Woods shot a 6-over round of 78 on Sunday in the final round. He finished at 13 over for the week, but none of the numbers seemed that significant on a week where the score was secondary.
