Scheffler Shines Again

Twenty-seven-year-old phenom, Scottie Scheffler, kept his white-hot streak alive by winning his second Masters Tournament in the last three years and maintaining his status as the world’s No.1 player for over 80 consecutive weeks.

Scheffler scorched Augusta National in the opening round, shooting a sizzling 66, before bookending the tournament with a sterling effort on Sunday in shooting a 68 for a 277 total and an 11 under par over his four days at Augusta.

 

 


“I feel like I’m playing magnificent golf right now,” Scheffler said. “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 try not to focus too much on the past.”

Claiming his second Masters in only five starts at Augusta puts him second on the all-time list in that category, trailing only Horton Smith who won two Masters in just three years (1934 and 1936). Scheffler also became the fourth youngest player to win multiple Masters, trailing only Jack Nicklaus (25 years, 81 days), Woods (25 years, 100 days) and Seve Ballesteros (26 years, 2 days).

A Change Did Scottie Good

Scottie Scheffler’s stats throughout March illustrated why he was the favorite in April entering the Masters. Scheffler competed in three tournaments last month, winning the Arnold Palmer Invitational and then the uber-prestigious PLAYERS Championship at TPC Sawgrass before finishing second in the Texas Children’s Houston Open two weeks later.


Scheffler’s prowess on the green has grown increasingly proficient. PGA rumors began swirling last summer that the 27-year-old was tinkering with several different putters and those rumors proved to be true. After trying several iterations Scheffler found the one that he liked best, yet, it still needed another tweak.

The bespoke putter that the TaylorMade team crafted for Scheffler made its debut at the Arnold Palmer Invitational which he won by five strokes, shooting a searing 15 under par for the tournament. Next came his victory at The PLAYERS Championship just a week later when he notched a 20 under par.


And now Scheffler has won his second Masters with his new putter and is playing the best golf of his highly-heralded career. The Masters champ has said putting is easy because it’s become so simple with the newest weapon in his formidable arsenal.

I don’t have to use the line on the ball. I line the putter up really well, and I line up in the middle of the face, and pretty much as simple as that,” Scheffler said. “Kind of gives me just a really

good visual.


Barring any unforeseen events, we will see Scheffler and his primetime putter compete in the second major of the year, the PGA Championship at the Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Kentucky on May 13-19.
