Scheffler is really dialed in now after a rough start. That double by Morikawa, plus all the missed birdie chances early, are likely to sink him, unless he pulls off an eagle or two on the back.

Now I'm looking at Tiger's majors performance in the 00s. It is insane. Most are either wins or 2nd. 12 major wins total.
Yeah it is a wild rabbit hole to go down, just absolute dominance.

well my cash out option on morrikowa dropped from over $500 to under $50 in 20 minutes. Oh well

It's like looking at Barry Bonds' BR page. Just bold numbers everywhere. In Tiger's case, it's yellow wins, at least on Wiki.

Tiger in majors:
- 1st place: 15
- 2nd place: 7
- top 10 finishes: 38

Jack in majors:
- 1st place: 18
- 2nd place: 19
- top 10 finishes: 73

Tiger's career majors' resumé is unbelievable. Yet it's dwarfed by Jack's.

And there goes Homa.

This just became almost not worth watching in about 10 minutes of time.
I said like 30 minutes ago this is the first Masters where multiple people were in it on the final day. And then all the people except golf perfection Scottie Scheffler fell apart.

Scheffler outdrives most everybody and has the irons and the short game too. Gonna be in most every tournament.
Yeah. When he putts poorly, he's still a top 10 finish guy. When he putts well, he dominates. I don't understand how sometimes, when his footwork is all over the place when he swings, and he's got a hitch in his swing, but hey, it works for him.

It doesn't just work, it's nearly perfection. His ball striking is all time awesome right now, (I believe he's 2nd all time over the past year in strokes gained, Tiger is #1 from the 00s, I think 05) his strokes gained statistics are pretty crazy.

Yeah no doubt. He's incredible. I just don't know HOW, given the oddities in his swing.

Well, not officially over. But close.

Poor Homa. Everything was pretty tight and then boom, bush.
Yea, that shot was punished way more than it deserved.

Feels a bit like either Scotty makes a big mistake (or gets really unlucky somewhere) or someone needs to string together a bunch of birdies and maybe Eagle 15 (not unheard of but no one looks hot).
