GOLF fans loved “relatable” Masters hero Scottie Scheffler as he four-putted on the final hole at Augusta.
The American comfortably overcame a late surge from Rory McIlory to win his maiden green jacket at the weekend.
After an imperious showing, the 25-year-old reminded fans that he is human with a four-putt on the 18th.
One fan posting about Scheffler’s final hole showing wrote: “Scottie Scheffler with an extremely relatable four putt on 18.”
A second commented: “I appreciate Scottie Scheffler’s hat tip to the Everyman on 18. Four putt is my speed zone, man.”
While a third added: “One of us! One of us!”
Despite his four-putt, Scheffler still beat McIlroy by three shots.
After his triumph, he said: “I tried to keep my head down and execute shots.
“I knew if I took care of my stuff and played solid stuff, I’d get the job done.
“I’m kind of glad I missed those putts at the end because it meant I didn’t get too emotional.”

Four-time major winner McIlroy, meanwhile, was delighted with his display.
The 32-year-old said: “To play as well as I did and finish like that is absolutely incredible.
“This tournament never ceases to amaze. That is as happy as I have ever been on a golf course.”
