From one extreme to another, from a positive record to a negative one. The Masters, as tradition dictates at Augusta, never fails to deliver surprises. After making the cut for the 24th consecutive time, an achievement unmatched by anyone before, Tiger Woods recorded his highest score in 99 rounds played on the dreamy green stage, with a round of 82 (+10).

Placing only 52nd with 227 (73 72 82, +11), the Californian dropped 30 positions and plummeted to the bottom of the leaderboard. Suffering from pain and imprecision on the green, where he had been lethal in the first 36 holes, he lost strokes and confidence.

In an event where the wind continues to reign supreme, American Scottie Scheffler dreams of donning the "green jacket" for the second time.

Masters, results

The winner in 2022, the world number one leads the leaderboard at the end of the "moving day" with 209 (66 72 71, -7) strokes, one ahead of his compatriot Collin Morikawa, who is second with 210 (-6), followed by another American, Max Homa, third with 211 (-5).

At Augusta National Golf Club (par 72), Swedish player Ludvig Aberg, a rising star in golf, sits fourth with 212 (-4), aiming to challenge the American heavyweights. A protagonist at the Ryder Cup in Rome with Team Europe, he dreams of becoming the third debutant to triumph at the Masters and claim a Major title on his first attempt since Ben Curtis (The Open 2003) and Keegan Bradley (PGA Championship 2011).

The Arabian Super League, a separatist golf circuit, remains fixated on Bryson DeChambeau. However, the Californian has slipped from 1st to 5th position with 213 (-3), trailing by four strokes from the top. And now, the grand finale.

Scheffler, who has won two of the last three events on the PGA Tour (finishing second in one, the Houston Open), could become the 18th golfer to win the Masters multiple times, the fourth youngest after Jack Nicklaus, Woods, and Severiano Ballesteros. These are all the results of the Masters in 2024 in Augusta.
