Scottie Scheffler reinforces the number 1 position in the world ranking by winning The Masters •

Except for that closing four putt, except for the 18th, Scottie Scheffler looked Teachers Sunday have everything under control in Augusta. He always did what he had to do, saving par from him when asked, pocketing a chip at a crucial moment early in the round and letting it get tight for just one hole. His first green jacket brings him into several rows with leading figures in the world of golf. For example, he is the fifth world-ranked No. 1 to win The Masters, after Ian Woosnam, Fred Couples, Tiger Woods and Dustin Johnson. Winning four times in a season, including a Major and World Golf Championship, has only been Tiger before in golf history. Special, because every time we saw a Scheffler swing on television, the initials would fall on the soles of his shoes tw read. “I play with Tiger’s irons. I wear his shoes, his shirts. Tiger on the golf course is just ridiculous and we’re so happy to have him back.” With one cut, Woods rose from 973 to 745 in the world rankings.

crying like a baby

The fact that Scheffler was going to consolidate his three-shot lead on the final lap and even extend it a bit was anything but a given to him. “I cried like a baby this morning, she was so stressed. I didn’t know what to do, I sat down and told Meredith (his wife of hers, ed.) that she wasn’t ready. She was overwhelmed.” the New Jersey-born Texan said. “I was tired last night, but we went to get some food. I messed up my dinner in the car and it was very frustrating. My wife still laughs at me.” Once turned off, he had no more problems. “I feel calm on the golf course. I think the part off the course is the hardest of all. Just being a part of The Masters has been a wonderful experience for me. Being able to come back here for the rest of my life It’s something I’ve always wanted to do.” I can barely understand.”

Are you sure for now?

The big star of the moment has already won his fourth tournament in the last two months (57 days to be exact, also a record), failing to do so once in 70 appearances. Since the first win in Phoenix, she has doubled her career earnings, became number 1 in the world and also Masters Champion. What else is to come? We have an idea, because his favorite golf course in the world is Southern Hills. In fact, the track where the PGA Championship is taking place in just over a month. Until that tournament, it is unlikely that his leading position in the Official World Golf Ranking will be threatened again.


The golf world also applauded the winner of the 86th Masters Tournament. “The number 1 in the world has shown why he is number 1,” record holder (six green jackets) Jack Nicklaus said via social media. Bryson DeChambeau, who still appeared to be injured and missed the cut, spoke of an “incredible performance.” “See you next year for lunch at the champions locker room”, tweeted Charl Schwartzel, the 2011 champion.

Also under this heading, we unfortunately have to talk about a male golfer this week. A boy, more accurately, Thai teen sensation Ratchanon “TK” Chantananuwat. At the age of 15 he triumphed in the Trust Golf Asian Mixed Cup, in which the women of the Ladies European Tour played alongside the men of the Asian Tour. He made him the youngest winner on a major golf tour. Chantananuwat showed on Sunday that he was way ahead of his age and had two shots left at the end of the stage. He enters the top 300 of the world ranking. In joint sixth place we find the first woman in Chanokhan Angurasaranee. Pasqualle Coffa missed the cut on the course that is also being played this week.
