Scottie Scheffler’s outstanding hot run of golf continued as he claimed his first major championship winning The Masters by three strokes. The win forms a stretch of victories where he has won four tournaments in his last six starts.

The World No.1 held his nerve and the lead from the second round through the final round winning with scores of 69-67-71-71.

The new Masters champion made two birdies on his first nine Sunday making the turn in 34 before holding strong on the second nine to secure the Green Jacket.

Only this year Scheffler signed a multi-year deal to join Team TaylorMade, playing the company’s Stealth Plus driver, Stealth fairway and P·7TW irons.

Scheffler’s four wins in 2022 include the WM Phoenix Open, Arnold Palmer Invitational, WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play and now The Masters. This remarkable winning stretch vaulted Scheffler to the World No.1 ranking in just a 56 day span.

The rapid rise to stardom has seen several other longstanding records broken. These include:

  • Joining Tiger Woods as the only players to win four times in a season including a major and WGC.

  • The first player to win The Masters and have 4 wins in the same PGA TOUR season since Arnold Palmer in 1960

  • Aged 25, Scheffler became the sixth player to reach World No.1 before age 26 joining Tiger Woods, Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas and Jon Rahm

  • Scheffler was the first American golfer to reach World No. 1 before winning his first major since 1999
