The athlete was already the world's top-ranked golfer heading into the Masters, but started Sunday with a narrow lead. Following behind him was Swedish golfer Ludvig Åberg, who finished -7, and Max Homa, Colin Morikawa and others, ended the tournament -4.

Scheffler's victory comes as he'll soon earn another title: dad. The golfer and his wife Meredith Scheffler are expecting their first child this month, and she was unable to attend the Masters.

In fact, Scheffler told reporters that he'd leave play if his wife were to go into labor, according to Golfweek. "Definitely have a way to get home pretty quickly. We have somebody here that has access to their cell phone, if that’s all right. And, yes, I’ll be available to go home then whenever I need to."
