CNN: Scottie Scheffler won the 2022 Masters on Sunday following a dominant performance at Augusta National.

The world No. 1 finished ahead of Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy to claim his first major title.
After two close-range misses on the 18th green, he rolled home the winning putt and carded a final round one-under par 71 to finish on 10-under for the tournament, five shots ahead of second-placed McIlroy.
 
Over the four days at the lush, sprawling golf club in Augusta, Georgia, Scheffler produced some excellent golf, refusing to falter under the pressure of being the tournament's leader for nearly three days.
In the end, he was rewarded for his recent run of good form, winning the most prestigious tournament title out there, as well as going home with the famous green jacket and the $2.7 million winners purse.
Asked how he felt in the immediate aftermath, Scheffler said he was "pretty tired."
"I want to go home! I'm pretty tired right now -- I'm really at a loss for words right now," he said.
"I can't thank my family enough -- they've made many sacrifices over the years. To have the honor of winning the tournament and to have my family with me was incredible."
