Scottie Scheffler storms to impressive four-shot Masters victory

Scottie Scheffler stormed to a stunning second Masters victory on Sunday to affirm his position as the best player in the world once more.

The 27-year-old American claimed his first Green Jacket back in 2022, and since then has been on an incredibly consistent run of wins and top-10 finishes.

His latest triumph at Augusta National by four strokes ahead of Ludvig Aberg cemented his place at the top of the Official World Golf Rankings, while it was also his third win in his last four professional appearances.

“It’s hard to put into words how special this is,” said Scheffler. “It’s been a long week, a grind of a week. The golf course was so challenging, and to be sitting here wearing this jacket again and getting to take it home is extremely special.

“I feel like I’m playing really good golf right now. I feel like I’m in control of my emotions as I’ve ever been, which is a good place to be. I feel like I’m maturing as a person on the golf course, which is a good place to be.

“I think it’s hard to argue with the results of the last few weeks. I’ve been playing some nice golf. But I really try to not focus too much on the past.

“I’m going to go home this week and reflect on this week and soak it in as best I can. Like I said, it’s not — it’s not a very satisfying sport because I’m supposed to tee it up again on Thursday. Back to the grind pretty quick.”

Scheffler is the 18th player to win the Masters Tournament multiple times and fourth-youngest to accomplish the feat.

“I try not to think about the past or the future too much,” the American continued. “I love trying to live in the present. I’ve had a really good start to the year, and I hope that I can continue on this path that I’m on.

“I’m going to continue to put in the work that’s got me here. I’m going to continue to put in the work, keep my head down. When I step up on the tee at a tournament, being able to tell myself that I did everything I could to play well and the rest isn’t up to me.

“So when I step up on the tee next week, I’m going to be thinking about the preparation, what it took to get there, and then I’m going to go out and just try and play as freely as possible.”
