Scottie Scheffler held off Cameron Smith and didn’t flinch during Rory McIlroy’s incredible fourth round to win the Masters tournament on Sunday and his first green jacket.
Scheffler and Smith were among the leaders going into the final round before the New Jersey native pulled away from Smith in the final stages of the tournament.
“I was fortunate to put myself in a position where I was in control of the tournament today so I didn’t have to worry about what anybody else was doing out there. If I took care of stuff and play good solid golf, I felt like I would get the job done. That was the goal going into today, just keep my head down,” Scheffler told CBS’ Jim Nantz.
