Scottie Scheffler stormed to his second Masters title with a Sunday masterclass at Augusta National.

The imperious world No.1 turned a tantalising final round into a procession with a ball-striking clinic, making seven birdies in his closing 68 to win by four shots and live up to his billing as the overwhelming pre-tournament favourite.

Sweden’s Ludvig Aberg finished runner-up on his major championship debut, while Tommy Fleetwood shared fourth with Collin Morikawa and Max Homa.

For the second time in three years, Scheffler has slipped into a Green Jacket. The Texan also collects a $3.6million winner’s cheque after following his wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players with another commanding performance.

“I’ll be home as quick as I can,” he said in a message to his wife in the Butler Cabin.

He added: “I can’t put into words what it is like to win here again and what it will be like to become a father for the first time.

“I did my best to stay calm and stay patient on the course and was able to make some key shots and putts to keep my round going.”
