Scottie Scheffler’s dominant performance at The Masters on his first major win was reminiscent of Tiger Woods’ performances earlier in his career, according to Bush Harmon.

Schaeffler, who finished world number one last month, edged out onto the court at Augusta National to claim his fourth title in six tournaments, capping an incredible streak to win his first major of the year on Sunday.

Five-time champion Woods, who is back in major championship action, was coached by Harmon during his unparalleled dominance of the sport in the early 2000s.

“he is [Scheffler] He is an amazing young player, only 25 years old, but just look at the way he has handled himself, through adversity and what he has done well.

“You never saw any highs, you never saw any lows. His game speaks for itself.

“What he’s done over the past couple of months is beyond that, he’s Tiger-esque. He’s doing it so calmly, so calmly, so relaxed.

“I tip my hat to him, it’s unbelievable what this guy did. Three months ago, most of the golf world didn’t know who he was. They know who he is now.”

“Nothing to anger this guy. He reminds me of Jack Nicklaus. His calmness and calmness. He’s never excited, he just goes about his business. He’s a 25-year-old day laborer, the way he plays.”

Schaeffler made the most of his five-pointer advantage in the 18th green as he scored four goals in a double bogey to win his first major championship.

“We all know Scotty Scheffler is the best player in the world right now, and he’s not going to stop now. He’ll keep going and guess what, the Grand Slam is on because he’s the only one who can win it.

“He went up the ladder too fast, and if you think he’s at the top of the ladder now, you’re wrong. It’s a long ladder and he’s going to keep climbing it. This guy is amazing – what he did and how fast he did it, that’s the guy here. Now you know why he’s #1 in the the world. “

Davis: Schaeffler answered the questions

Ms. Laura Davis also felt that Schaeffler’s performance was reminiscent of that of Prime Woods.

“Everyone was wondering if he was the number one in the world, but now those questions have been answered,” Davies said.

“He had a big enough lead that there was a lot of pressure but he was calm and rebellious, even when he hit him in the trees on day 18 [in round three]. He made a phantom when he could have doubled or tripled.

“Every time there was a question, he would answer it. It was the way Tiger-esque won this week.”

Rory McIlroy shot the lowest round of the week—and his lowest score ever in Augusta—with eight less than 64 on the final day to finish second, and Harmon thinks the tour could be of huge significance.

McIlroy won all of his four major titles between 2011 and 2014, but has failed to claim one of the sport’s best trophies since then.

“I think this will do wonders for Rory McIlroy’s confidence.

McIlroy says that after fourteen years playing the Masters, he has produced his best runs and will continue to try to win that green jacket.

“We all know the talent he has, we all know how good he is, but I think that’s the thing that will turn him on. It will give him confidence.

“And I’m going to a party right now, I think Rory McIlroy is going to win one of the next three, and I think that’s why that’s going to happen.

“I think that’s what Rory McIlroy needed. I don’t know where he’s been, I don’t know what’s been inside his head in the last few years. I know his talent because he’s one of the best players I think I’ve seen.

“This will put it back where we think it should be.”

What are the rest of the majors for this year?

Schaeffler will now target more major success in the PGA Championship May 19-22, which is being held at Southern Hills Country Club for the first time since Woods won there in 2007, with the US Open held at The Country Club in Brooklyn from 16-19 June.

Then, the men’s main season climaxes at the 150th Open from July 14-17, with Woods confirming he intends to play in St Andrews, where all the majors will once again live exclusively on Sky Sports Golf this year.
