AUGUSTA, Ga. — The two best golfers in the world this year will go head-to-head with green jackets in play Sunday at the 2022 Masters. Augusta National three strokes ahead of Cameron Smith. One of the two will almost certainly end the day being crowned on the 18th green with a check for $2.7 million that will end up in his back account.
Scheffler, who took a five-shot lead early in the third round, saw that advantage cut in half as Smith posted the day’s round, a 4-under 68. Although Scheffler has been much more consistent this week, the No. 1 player in the world will have to fight until the end. Given that 26 of the last 31 green jacket winners have come from the final round four pairing, there’s a much better chance that one of those two will be named Masters champion on Sunday afternoon.
As for Tiger Woods, a brave and impressive effort over the first two days saw the five-time Masters winner qualify for the 22nd consecutive tournament at Augusta National. However, Tiger followed that up with the worst round of his career here, a 6 of 78 that saw him crumble. His goal on Sunday? Come back even for the masters.
