Scottie Scheffler has claimed victory at the 2022 golf Masters at Augusta National, finishing ahead of Ireland’s Rory Mcllroy

Scheffler claimed his first major title, with his final round one-under-par. He finished 10-under for the tournament and five shots ahead of second-placed McIlroy.

Meanwhile, at Scheffler’s home club in Dallas, Texas, nearly every seat was filled as they celebrated the victory.

Scheffler was the tournament’s leader for almost three days, taking home the famous green jacket and 2.7 million dollars in prize money.

Almost lost for words, the world champion says he can’t thank his family enough, and to have the honour of winning the tournament and to have his family there was “incredible.”

After blowing the field away with his stellar performance at the 86th Masters, Scheffler embraced his wife Meredith Scudder.

Vigil held for the 125 people killed in Indonesia’s stadium disaster, as the nation mourns

Vigil held for the 125 people have been killed in a crush and riot at a soccer match in Indonesia.

Authorities believe it is one of the world’s worst stadium disasters. Now, the nation stops to mourn the lives that have been lost.

The tragedy unfolded in Malang, in the province of East Java. It followed home side Arema FC loosing 3-2 to Persebaya Surabaya.

East Java police chief Nico Afinta said frustrated Arema supporters invaded the pitch.

Officers responded by firing tear gas in an attempt to control the situation, triggering the crush and cases of suffocation.

Afinta claimed officers had been attacked and cars damaged. He said the crush happened when fans fled for an exit gate.

300 were injured, including 22-year-old Muhammad Rian Dwicahyono who said many friends had lost their lives “because of officers who dehumanized us”.

The head of one of the hospitals in the area treating patients told Metro TV that some of the victims had sustained brain injuries and that the fatalities included a five-year-old child.

On Sunday, Malang residents gathered outside the stadium to lay flowers.

As investigations continue, Indonesia’s President Joko Widodo has ordered the Football Association of Indonesia to suspend all games in the top league.

World soccer’s governing body FIFA has requested a report on the incident from Indonesia’s PSSI soccer association.

FIFA’s safety regulations say no firearms or “crowd control gas” should be carried or used by stewards or police.

East Java police did not immediately respond to a request for comment on whether they were aware of such regulations.
