Who won the Masters? Details on the next golf tournaments in 2022 and Masters 2023 dates explained
Scottie Scheffler wins his first golf major at Augusta National and takes home prestigious Green Jacket but what are the next golf tournaments in 2022 and what are the 2023 Masters dates?
The current World Number One, American Scottie Scheffler won the Masters Golf Tournament 2022 and, in doing so, firmly established himself as one of the sport’s major forces.
Scheffler claimed the Green Jacket from 2021 winner Hideki Matsuyama after securing a one-under 71, missing two short putts for a double bogey on 18, to finish 10 under par.
Northern Ireland and former PGA Tour Champion Rory McIlroy, who shot a phenomenal 64, came in second, Scheffler finishing three shots clear of his nearest competitor.
The World number six, Australia’s Cameron Smith, finished third alongside Shane Lowry after hoping to have achieved a rare double of Players Championship and Masters Victories.
Scheffler remained calm throughout and overcame an 18th hole wobble and McIlroy’s sensational last-day comeback to win one of the sport’s most iconic tournaments.
Speaking after his triumphant win, Scheffler said: “I was very excited at the third hole, a bit surprised. It was not a shot I expected to see going in but it definitely got things rolling, after that and I played some really solid golf after that.
“It’s a long day, it’s a tough day and I was trying to keep my head down and execute shots.
“I was fortunate to put myself in a position where I was in control of the tournament today. I did see that Rory (McIlroy) posted seven under.
“The first time I thought of winning was probably Friday in the afternoon.”
When asked how he felt after the win, he replied: “I want to go home! I’m pretty tired right now - I’m really at a loss for words right now.
“I can’t thank my family enough - they’ve made many sacrifices over the years. To have the honour of winning the tournament and to have my family with me was incredible.”
