Fleetwood came third and put together an excellent round to make a late charge up the leaderboard. This is how he recorded his best finish at the Masters.

However, Scheffler’s dedication made him the ultimate winner.

The final day of the tournament was a nail-biting affair, with Scheffler holding a one-shot advantage.
