And he headed straight home to Dallas, Texas to celebrate with his heavily-pregnant wife Meredith.

Scheffler was ready to pull out of the Masters if Meredith went into labor.

He reaffirmed his position ahead of Sunday’s round at 2.35pm local time despite holding a one-shot lead.

Fortunately for the world No. 1, he was able to complete his round without alarm and captured his second major.

He was asked by CBS host Jim Nantz in the Butler Cabin afterwards if he has a message for wife Meredith.

“I’m coming home. I’ll be home as quick as I can,” he said.

“I love you and I’m coming home.”

Scheffler added, “You’re about to make me cry here in Butler Cabin. It’s a very special time for both of us.

“I can’t put into words what it means to win this tournament again and I really can’t put into words what it’s going to be like to be a father for the first time.

“Looking forward to getting home and celebrating with Meredith, it’s been a long week without her.”

Scheffler married his high-school sweetheart Meredith in 2020.

The couple are expecting their first child, which has come very close to the Masters.

The golfer even found a way around Augusta’s policy of no phones on Sunday just in case there was any baby news.

Speaking on Saturday, he said, “Yeah, I definitely have a way to get home pretty quickly.

“And yeah, we have somebody here that has access to their cell phone.

“And yes, I’ll be available to go home whenever I need to.”

Before the tournament began, Scheffler indicated that Meredith was not quite due in her pregnancy.

“As far as her going into labor, I wouldn’t say I’m very concerned,” Scheffler said during a press conference on April 11.

“We haven’t seen any of the early signs. But pregnancy is weird. It can happen at any time.

“We have open lines of communication, and she can get hold of me if she needs to.

“And yeah, I’m ready to go at a moment’s notice.”

Sunday’s win adds to Scheffler’s 2022 Masters triumph.

He has yet to win any of golf’s other three majors with his best finish being tied for second in both the PGA Championship in 2023 and the U.S. Open in 2022.

The 27-year-old’s best result at The Open Championship is tied for eighth place in 2021.
