All eyes will be on Scottie Scheffler as the best golfer in the world at the moment looks to clinch his maiden major title at the 2022 Masters Tournament.
The American golfer is the hottest property in golf and he is currently sitting at the top of the Official World Golf Rankings thanks to his scintillating form in 2022. 
Scheffler's 2022 results leading into the Masters read like an early 2000s Tiger Woods: three wins in his last five starts, all against loaded fields.

The talented golfer, who has won five professional tournaments including three PGA Tour events, is set to make his third appearance in the Masters.
Scheffler has played twice at the Masters - finishing in a tie for 19th in 2020 as Dustin Johnson won the tournament and a tie for 18th in 2021 with Hideki Matsuyama clinching the title. 
The 25-year-old is coming into this year's event in fine form having won the 2022 Arnold Palmer Invitational, 2022 WM Phoenix Open and 2022 WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play.
Scheffler defeated Kevin Kisner in the final match at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play on March 27 and he will now be looking to clinch the Masters' trophy.

“It has been kind of a crazy past few months. Guess I’m making up for a little bit of lost time maybe the last few weeks," Scheffler said as he reflected on his performances in 2022. 
"I don’t feel like number one in the world. I feel like the same guy I was four months ago and I hope that doesn’t change.
“I don’t place too many expectations on myself. I just like being out here and competing. I’m fortunate to have the opportunity to do that and I look forward to doing it as long as I can," he added.
“I wanted to be a professional golfer. That’s what I dreamed of. The rankings never really crossed my mind. It was always just about being out here and competing.”
