The GIST: Come for Tiger’s return, stay for the first-time winner. World No. 1, 25-year-old Scottie Scheffler is your 2022 Masters champion — his first-ever major title.

How Scottie did it: The 2020 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year, Scheffler already had the golf world on notice after rattling off three wins in his last five starts.

  • And that dominance continued at the Masters as Scheffler fought off a late push by second-place finisher Rory McIlroy to win by three strokes, his fourth tour win in 57 days. Green looks good on you, Scottie.

Zooming out: Though he finished in 47th place, this 86th edition of the Masters will undoubtedly be remembered for Tiger Woods’ miraculous comeback. Less than 14 months after shattering his leg in a life-threatening car accident, Woods returned to one of the most challenging tournaments on the PGA Tour, made the cut and played all 72 holes.

  • Yes, his legacy is a complicated one, but Woods’ impact on the sport is indisputable. The youngest-ever Masters winner, this latest accomplishment is yet another in Tiger’s inspiring career. The best part? He’s not done yet.
