Scottie Scheffler extended his remarkable winning streak with major Masters glory, his fourth win in just six starts, but is the world No. 1 getting enough recognition for his dominating start through 2022?

Scheffler’s three-stroke win at Augusta National lifted the 25-year-old even further to the top of the world rankings, with the American holding off playing partner Cameron Smith and a charging Rory McIlroy to take the biggest win of his career to date. .

“He showed us many times that he could fight, as his Ryder Cup performance as a rookie was phenomenal and he showed no fear in everything he did. I think the Ryder Cup performance, heading into the new year, laid the foundation for what he went on and did.

“I think if you asked Scheffler now if what he’s accomplished in the last two months has surprised him, I think he’d say yes, if he were being honest. The more he keeps doing what he’s been doing, the more he’s going to get used to being the Scheffler we’ve seen for the past eight weeks or so.

“A phenomenal player. Yeah, for some reason he doesn’t necessarily have the charisma you’d say a Jon Rahm or maybe a Collin Morikawa, but what a golfer he is. It was all downsides to him if he didn’t win that green jacket, even though he just showed everyone what a great player he is. »

“McIlroy rides on emotion and when he has that push behind him, that’s when he plays his best. I hope he can keep that feeling he had before the summer, because I still see him having a really big season and I would like to love him for doing that.

“I think he’s unfortunate because the media has been pushing for this fucking Grand Slam. There are only five guys who have won the Grand Slam. Gene Sarazen is probably the one people don’t really talk about and he needed to win seven majors to pick all four.

“Try to win other major tournaments. Win the Open this year. Win the PGA Championship this year and then just let the Masters come when it happens, because when you think there’s no other major tournament to consider, that’s counterproductive for him, I think. ”
