Tour of Ten: The Masters Winners Edition

The Masters is the most celebrated tournament in all of golf, and the latest edition of the event gets underway this Thursday at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia. Here’s a look at each of the golfers who earned themselves a Green Jacket over the past decade in our latest Tour of Ten . . .

2023 Masters – Jon Rahm

Rahm went 65-69-73-69 at the Masters in 2023 to win the tournament for the first time at minus-12, with Brooks Koepka and Phil Mickelson finishing four strokes back of the leader, and each of Patrick Reed, Jordan Spieth, and Russell Henry ending up five strokes behind. Rahm has since left the PGA Tour to join LIV Golf. Overall, Rahm has now finished within the Top 10 in five of his last six Masters.

2022 Masters – Scottie Scheffler

Scheffler topped Rory McIlroy by three strokes to win the 2022 Masters at minus-10, despite shooting a 71 in the final round compared to McIlroy’s 64 on the Sunday. Shane Lowry and Cameron Smith were both five strokes back of Scheffler for the tournament. Scheffler finished tied for 10th place at the Masters in 2023, and top-10 in three of the four major tournaments on tour last year.

2021 Masters – Hideki Matsuyama

Matsuyama held on for a one-stroke win over Will Zalatoris at the 2021 Masters, shooting a final-round score of 73 to end up at minus-10 for the tournament. Spieth and Xander Schauffele both finished three strokes back of the leader in a tie for third place. That remains Matsuyama’s only victory at a major tournament, although he has two other top-10 Masters results in his career.

2020 Masters – Dustin Johnson

Johnson set the record with an incredible score of minus-20 to win the 2020 Masters, shooting rounds of 65 on both the Thursday and the Saturday en route to the victory. Smith and Im Sung-jae were five strokes back in a tie for second place at the tournament. Johnson had finished second at the Masters the previous year, and overall he has finished in the Top 10 at the event five times.

2019 Masters – Tiger Woods

Woods won the Masters for the fifth time in 2019, shooting a final round of 70 to end up at minus-13. That left him one stroke ahead of Johnson, Koepka, and Schauffele, who finished in a three-way tie for second place. Woods’ most recent Masters victory had come back in 2005, and he also claimed the Green Jacket in 2002, 2001, and 1997. Overall Woods has won 15 major tournaments.

2018 Masters – Patrick Reed

Reed managed to hold off the charging Rickie Fowler and Spieth to win the 2018 Masters, ending up at minus-15 to beat Fowler by one stroke and Spieth by two strokes. Reed shot a 71 on the Sunday, with Fowler at 67 and Spieth at 64. Rahm was fourth at minus-11 for the tournament. After ending up tied for fourth place at the Masters last year, Reed has four top-10 results overall at the event.

2017 Masters – Sergio Garcia

Garcia needed a playoff to pick up a Green Jacket for the first time in 2017, edging Justin Rose in extra time to win the tournament. Charl Schwartzel ended up three strokes back of Garcia and Rose at minus-six to claim third place. Since that victory Garcia has missed the cut in four of his last five appearances at the Masters; overall he has finished in the Top 10 at the tournament four times.

2016 Masters – Danny Willett

Willett shot a final-round 67 to claim the 2016 Masters by three strokes over Spieth and Lee Westwood, despite shooting just minus-five for the tournament. Only six golfers finished at minus-1 or better at the Masters in 2016. Willett hasn’t finished higher than 12th place (in 2022) at the Masters since his victory at the event, and he has just three top-10 results at major tournaments.

2015 Masters – Jordan Spieth

Spieth shot rounds of 64 and 66 over the first two days of the Masters in 2015 and cruised from there to a score of minus-18 to win the tournament by four strokes over Mickelson and Justin Rose. McIlroy ended up six strokes back in fourth place. Spieth has managed to finish in the Top 5 at the Masters six times in his career, and with 14 top-10 results at major tournaments on his resume.

2014 Masters – Bubba Watson

Watson won the Masters for the second time in three years in 2014, finishing three strokes ahead of Spieth and Jonas Blixt to win the tournament at minus-8. Miguel Angel Jimenez was four strokes behind in fourth place at the event. Watson also won the Masters in 2012 but since then he has managed to finish in the Top 10 at the tournament only once, a fifth-place finish at Augusta in 2018.
