American Scheffler wins Masters

American Scottie Scheffler has won the Masters marking a remarkable rise to world number one.


Its Scheffler's first major tournament victory but is in a rich vein of form winning four tournaments since February.


Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy produced a stunning final round of 64, one off the course record, to finish runner-up.


Aussie Cam Smith finished tied third after starting the day three shots behind Scheffler but it all fell apart when he tripled bogey on the 12th hole.

Smith was left to lament a missed opportunity.


"Just too many mistakes. I felt like my front-nine bogeys weren't really deserved and kinda halted my momentum a little bit.

"A poor shot on 12, and there's the tournament."


Scheffler had the luxury of being able to four-putt on the final green and still closed out the tournament.


Amongst the remainder of the Aussies Min Woo Lee finished two over, Marc Leishman five over, Cameron Davis 12 over and Adam Scott 14 over.
