Scottie Scheffler won the 2022 Masters at Augusta National Golf Club on Sunday, finishing 10 under par, and five-time green jacket winner Tiger Woods was one of many who congratulated him on the big victory.

Scheffler joined Woods and Jordan Spieth as the only players 25 or younger to win the Masters over the last 40 years, according to ESPN Stats & Info.

I didn’t play my best out there, but just to have the support and appreciation from all the fans, I don’t think words can describe that. Congratulations to Scottie Scheffler on an outstanding win. It’s been a special run. <a href="https://t.co/8BAMJKlGFY">pic.twitter.com/8BAMJKlGFY</a>

Sunday marked Scheffler's first win at a major. In two prior Masters appearances, he finished 18th and 19th. The 25-year-old has also won the WM Phoenix Open, Arnold Palmer Invitational and the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play this year. 

Woods, meanwhile, finished 47th at 13 over par. After the match, he said it felt "unbelievable" to get back out on the course after missing more than a year rehabbing from serious injuries suffered in a car crash in February 2021. He also confirmed he would participate in The Open Championship at St. Andrews this summer but noted he wouldn't be playing a regular schedule again.
