Scottie Scheffler Wins 2022 Masters, Earning First Major Championship

Two months ago, Scottie Scheffler had yet to win on the PGA Tour. Since then he has collected four wins and the world No. 1 ranking — plus a Masters green jacket.

At just 25 years old, Scheffler is the youngest Masters victor since fellow-American Jordan Spieth earned the green jacket at the age of 21 in 2015. Scheffler finished three strokes ahead of runner-up Rory McIlory, who had a record-tying final round.

Scheffler now has four wins in his last six PGA Tour tournaments, all of which have come in the last 56 days. The Dallas native captured a win at the Phoenix Open in a playoff, delivered a victory at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, and then took first place at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play.

With Sunday’s win at the Masters, Scheffler pocketed $2.7 million and has now earned $8,872,200 over his last six starts.
