‘Boring’, ardent Catholic, Olympic favorite: Who is Augusta Masters winner Scotty Scheffler?

Designed for a winner, the green jacket suits him perfectly. Moreover, his shoulders are starting to get used to it. For the second time in three years, American Scottie Scheffler won golf’s most famous trophy, once again winning the Augusta Masters. At 27 years old, the world number one sits a little further atop the little white ball. An ultra-low-key star who can no longer hide, especially from the French fans who will be waiting for him at the Olympic Games this summer.

And there’s a reason the adopted Texan is putting up some impressive stats this year. He hasn’t performed worse than second in Houston since early March. Otherwise, he won the three biggest tournaments of the season: the Arnold Palmer Invitational, The Players, considered the “5th” major, and the legendary Augusta Masters. “The start he’s making to the season is stronger than Tiger Woods at his best. His statistics are out of this world,” marvels Thomas Levet, a former player and consultant for Canal+.
