Brazil legend Ricardo Kaka is in the headlines after his ex-wife Caroline Celico spoke about their divorce. Meanwhile, the Brazilian is on a tour in Malaysia, meeting and greeting his fans on the Asian side. Anyhow, amid the tour and the frenzy fueled by Celico, Kaka has missed no key sporting event. He noticed and lauded Bayer Leverkusen’s monumental Bundesliga win under the unbeaten Xabi Alonso. Thereafter, the 2002 World Champion took a moment to celebrate Scottie Scheffler‘s second Masters Win in three years.

The 2022 champion Scheffler shrugged off a slow start and finished The Masters with -11 points to register a four-shot victory at the Augusta Nationals. Kaka was quick to savor the 27-year-old’s green jacket win. The 2007 Ballon d’Or winner took to Instagram stories and shared a photo of Scottie Scheffler with the title, posted by The Masters’ official page. “All glory to our Lord Jesus, for your life! Congratulations brother @scottie.scheffler,” Ricardo Kaka wrote on his story.

The world number one Scheffler came to The Masters as its red-hot favorite. He lived up to the reputation, finishing four shots clear of Sweden’s Ludvig Aberg, who finished second in his The Masters debut. However, there was a chance that Scheffler would not have competed till the final round and won his second green jacket. The 27-year-old’s wife Meredith is due to give birth to their first child. The golf superstar said he would leave the Augusta Nationals mid-round if Meredith went into labor on Sunday. A perfect partner would be an understatement!
