The Masters 2023 concluded on a quite positive note, despite the tensions between the LIV and the PGA Tour factions of golf. Jon Rahm triumphed at Augusta National, reclaiming his place as OWGR No.1 and winning his second golf Major. Fans and admirers worldwide have showered their love and praise for the wonderfully conducted tournament, filled with thrill and action for all sports fans to enjoy.
Kevin Pietersen, the former English Cricket team captain, is also one of the keen golf fans who were closely following the Augusta Masters this year. He has also showered his compliments on the hosts of the tournament and the players, for bringing in a true sense of competition and action throughout the weekend.
In his tweet, Pietersen agrees that despite the schism between LIV and PGA Tour, the golf fans thoroughly enjoyed the action that unfolded at Augusta National. Pietersen adds, “A great sign and hopefully, some smart people can get in a room and bring us golf fans the best players in the world playing against each other, more often.” Through this, Pietersen perhaps signaled towards golfing authorities to rank OWGR points to LIV players, given their incredible performance over the weekend.
The Masters 2023 concludes on a positive note with Jon Rahm’s triumph
Spanish golfer Jon Rahm truly displayed his potential and worth, winning the 87th Masters at Augusta National. This achievement will be his second major golf tournament win, which he won by a four-shot margin over LIV players Brooks Koepka and Phil Mickelson.
Although Rahm was initially two shots behind Koepka during the final round, he played in the final pairing and scored three-under-par 69, thus finishing the week at 12 under. Another event that shocked the fans this Masters was the withdrawal of Tiger Woods from the tournament. Woods opted for this decision to withdraw, owing to his physical condition due to injuries. He had made a record by equalling 23rd consecutive cut at Augusta National on Saturday.
Besides this, amateur sensation Sam Bennett tied for third place on six under, with five shots behind Rahm. He is in a similar position to Patrick Cantlay in the tournament and was one of the hot shots to watch out for during the tournament.
Nevertheless, the first major in spring for golf turned out to be a massive treat for the fans, showing some enthralling action and unbelievable results all throughout. While no one had really expected Tiger Woods to withdraw despite making the cut, the 87th Masters was sure a tournament filled with twists and turns that the fans thoroughly enjoyed.
