Ronnie O’Sullivan’s two centuries at Wembley tonight means he has now made 42 in the Masters and broken Stephen Hendry’s record of 41.
Hendry has played in five more stagings of the tournament than O’Sullivan.
It also took the total number of centuries seen at the Masters this year to 27 – one more than the 2007 record of 26.
However, I’m not sure this should necessarily be seen as proof of rising standards.
In 1996, there were 21 centuries made at the Masters. Three years ago there were just 11.
