For the second time in three years, Scottie Scheffler has won the Masters.

Scheffler finished with a score of 11 under at Augusta National Golf Club, fending off competition from Ludvig Åberg and Collin Morikawa, among others. The current world No. 1 is the first player to win the Masters twice in a three-year span since Bubba Watson accomplished the feat in 2012 and 2014. Scheffler was also the No. 1-ranked player in the world at the time of his 2022 victory, placing him with Tiger Woods as the only players since the inception of the Official World Golf Ranking to win multiple major championships while world No. 1. He's also the fourth-youngest player to win multiple green jackets.

The 27-year-old captured the Players Championship last month, and his subsequent victory Sunday put him in elite company. Only five golfers have ever won the Players and a major in the same calendar year. Scheffler additionally joins Woods and Jack Nicklaus as the only players to have multiple victories at both the Players and the Masters.

Scheffler paced well ahead of his competition. Åberg finished in second with a score of 7 under, making Scheffler the fifth player in Masters history to win multiple green jackets by 3-plus shots.

It didn't take long for social media to be filled with reactions to Scheffler's victory.
