World No. 1 golfer Scottie Scheffler made short work of the final three rounds of the 2022 Masters to win his first major on a 10-under (278) finish with a record $2.7 million payout.

Tiger Woods came in lower on the leaderboard but his comeback was still considered a success after his major car crash last year.

He joins Ian Woosnam (1991), Fred Couples (1992),  Woods (2001, 2002) and Dustin Johnson (2020) as the only golfers to enter the Masters ranked 1 in the world and win.

Scheffler shot a 69 in Round 1 and 67, the second day for a five-stroke lead. A 71 on Saturday turned out to be a bump in the road, though, as he sank a three-foot double-bogey putt to finish his improbable day.
