Masters Winner Scottie Scheffler



World No. 1 golfer Scottie Scheffler defeated Collin Morikawa to win yesterday's 2024 Masters Tournament. The win at Augusta National marks Scheffler's second Masters title, earning him a $3.6M prize.


Last year's champion, Jon Rahm—currently No. 3 in the world rankings—finished nine over par and tied for 45th place. Tiger Woods, a five-time Masters winner, endured a challenging 72 holes, ending the four days with the worst score of any tournament in his professional career.


The weekend tournament came as the sport faces a crossroads in terms of organization and viewership. The PGA Tour and Saudi-backed LIV Golf league have yet to reconcile the terms of last year’s merger, splitting the opportunities for a number of star players to appear at the same events. Meanwhile, notable tournaments have seen a drop in viewership, with recent invitationals seeing more than a 30% year-over-year drop in viewers.
