    NORTH BERWICK, Scotland (AP) — Xander Schauffele keeps making up for lost time. Winless for more than two years, Schauffele picked up his fourth victory in the last 12 months Sunday when he overcame a rough patch in the middle of his round with two key birdies and a par save for an even-par 70 to win the Scottish Open. Next up is another test on Scottish soil, this one the purest of all, the British Open at St. Andrews. Schauffele heads to the home of golf as among the hottest players in the world. It was the first time the PGA Tour co-sanctioned a European tour event. Schauffele has career titles on the PGA Tour. His 8-foot par save on the par-3 17th at The Renaissance Club gave him a two-shot lead, and the 28-year-old from San Diego played it smartly from there. He took iron off the 18th tee to avoid trouble and wound up missing an 8-foot par try. Schauffele finished at 7-under 273, one shot ahead of Kurt Kitayama (66). The consolation for Kitayama was earning...
    AVONDALE, La. (AP) — Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele held off Sam Burns and Billy Horschel by two strokes Sunday in a record-setting, wire-to-wire victory in the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. Cantlay and Schauffele closed with an even-par-72 in the alternate-shot final round to finish at 29-under 259 at TPC Louisiana. They broke the tournament record of 27 under set by Kevin Kisner-Scott Brown and Jonas Blixt-Cameron Smith in 2017, the first year the tournament was played as a team event. Cantlay and Schauffele opened with a record 59 in best-ball play Thursday, and began Sunday at 29 under after shattering the 54-hole record of 23 under. Local favorite and LSU graduate Sam Burns and Billy Horschel pulled within one after birdieing the eighth, 10th and 11th holes. But Burns’ tee shot on the short par-4 16th found the water and a bogey on the par-3 17th left them three behind. They shot 68. Doc Redman and Sam Ryder were third at 24 under after a 67. Cantlay, the defending FedExCup champion and PGA Tour Player of the...

    PALM HARBOR, Fla. (AP) — Xander Schauffele is playing the Valspar Championship for the first time, which is not to suggest everything about Innisbrook is foreign territory for him. “I know what the range, the putting green and the chipping green look like,” Schauffele said Wednesday after a nine-hole pro-am. “I just didn’t know how to get there. I didn’t know the locker room was over there. I felt like a rookie again.” He was a rookie in 2017 when he first saw Innisbrook — part of it, anyway — while spending three days as an alternate wondering if enough players would withdraw. He never made it to the first tee for the tournament. Five years ago seems much longer for Schauffele, now No. 9 in the world with an Olympic gold medal from Tokyo and a World Golf Championship among his four PGA Tour victories. Not so distant was the memory from the TPC Sawgrass. Schauffele and Collin Morikawa, also playing the Valspar Championship for the first time, were among those caught on the wrong side of the draw...
    (CNN)He's enjoyed the summer of a lifetime, and Xander Schauffele is determined to keep the good times rolling. Schauffele secured personal glory by winning Olympic gold in Tokyo before, a month later, toasting squad success on home soil with Team US in a historically dominant Ryder Cup victory over Europe. It is the culmination of a breakout year for the American, rising to world No. 4 in golf's rankings, with his crowning moment coming at the Kasumigaseki Country Club in Kasahata, Saitama, Japan, following a dramatic final day's action. Schauffele's commanding lead was slashed before he recovered to pip Slovakia's Rory Sabbatini by a shot. Having overcome the added difficulties posed by pandemic, the American's achievement was made even more special by the fact his grandparents live in Japan. "It was tricky," Schauffele admitted to CNN Sport's Patrick Snell. "I had a lot of help around me in order to succeed in Japan.Read MoreSchauffele celebrates with the gold medal.

    To the players who decided to stay home from the Tokyo Olympics, Xander Schauffele showed them on Sunday what they were missing out on If you believed that the Olympic golf tournament didn’t matter, that professionals who make millions of dollars on a weekly basis had better things to do than fly halfway around the world to play in a spectator-less event that doesn’t count as a major or award any money, then you didn’t see the smile on Xander Schauffele’s face. Collin Morikawa won the Open Championship two weeks ago, but how he was focused during the playoff it seemed like he was playing for another Claret Jug.

Stefan Schauffele had hoped to represent Germany in track and field but a car crash left him blind in one eye, a blow that took him years to get over.

    An approach by Xander Schauffele, 27, from 90 meters, which stopped one sealed the victory of the American in the men’s Olympic golf tournament.

    KAWAGOE, Japan (AP) — Right when it looked as though Xander Schauffele had lost his grip on an Olympic gold medal, he delivered two clutch putts Sunday for a one-shot victory in the men’s golf competition. Schauffele made a 6-foot birdie putt on the 17th hole to take the lead, and then made a 4-foot par putt on the final hole for a 4-under 67. Rory Sabbatini of Slovakia set the men’s Olympic record with a 61 and won the silver. Hideki Matsuyama of Japan, hoping to add a gold medal to go with his Masters green jacket, missed too many putts down the stretch and finished two shots behind. He was still in the running for a bronze medal. The competition at Kasumigaseki Country Club was so tense that on the final hole, nine players were still in the running for all three medals. Matsuyama was part of a seven-man playoff for the bronze, a group that included Rory McIlroy and Collin Morikawa. ___ More AP Olympics: https://apnews.com/hub/2020-tokyo-olympics and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Copyright © 2021 The Associated Press.

    AUGUSTA, Ga. — Xander Schauffele had Hideki Matsuyama bloodied and on the ropes, all but waiting for the sweeping right hook that would end the fight. They were standing on the 16th tee, right after Matsuyama had put his most recent approach shot into the drink. Right after Schauffele had made four birdies in a row to cut a four-shot lead to two. With all the momentum, and still behind on the judges’ cards, Schauffele went for the knockout on the iconic par-3, where Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus had hit the signature shots of their epic Masters careers. “I was coming in hot,” Schauffele said. “I was feeling good.” He chose an 8-iron from 184 yards out, and let it fly. “I hit a perfect shot,” Schauffele said. Augusta National has a long history of funneling perfect shots into imperfect endings. This one got eaten up by a diabolical wind, sending it bouncing down a slope and into the pond.

    The long wait for an Asian winner of the Masters came to a nerve-filled end on Sunday when Hideki Matsuyama from Japan delivered the victory that will send a golf-obsessed nation into rapture. ‘He’ll be lighting the Olympic flame after this,’ said Sir Nick Faldo on US television, and a starring role at the Tokyo Games this summer will surely prove the least of it. Matsuyama caused palpitations back home, mind, before sealing an historic one stroke success.   Hideki Matsuyama won the 2021 Masters after surviving a nervous finish at Augusta National RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Justin Rose admits he 'didn't play well enough' on day three...

    The 2021 Masters is perfectly poised for a thrilling finish. Japanese player Hideki Matsuyama leads the field heading into the final round and is aiming to create history. However, he is closely followed by four players who are tied for second place. One of them is Xander Schauffele, the player who’s ranked No. 6 in the Official World Golf Rankings.  There are a handful of players who excelled in Round 3 of the 2021 Masters. The first name among the lot would be Hideki Matsuyama, who became the first Japanese player to lead after any round at the Masters.  Matsuyama is in a comfortable spot carrying a four-stroke lead, but the Japanese player would not be too confident about his position. In fact, he would know that the second-placed golfers would look to make a late surge in the final round at Augusta National.  2021 Masters: Xander Schauffele stands as the major threat in Matsuyama’s path Hideki Matsuyama is looking to become the first Japanese men’s player to win a major.

    AUGUSTA, Ga. — Xander Schauffele could have ruined perhaps the greatest golf story ever told. He was among the three players who were one stroke, one swing, one lucky bounce away from tying Tiger Woods in the 2019 Masters, and forcing Woods into a playoff absolutely nobody in creation wanted to see. Thankfully for all viewers not related to Schauffele, or not tethered to his chances by way of a wager, he finished tied for second with Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka at 12-under, giving the 43-year-old Woods, at 13-under, a moment to match Jack Nicklaus’ 1986 Masters victory at age 46. Schauffele had birdied the 13th and 14th holes to take the Masters lead, his 24th and 25th birdies of the week, but closed with four pars to fall just short. “That was, to me, a nice rookie mistake I made,” Schauffele said Saturday after shooting a 4-under 68 to land at 7-under for the tournament, four strokes behind leader Hideki Matsuyama. “Just got caught up in the moment. I’m glad it happened sooner than later in my career,...
    More On: the masters Why this PGA Tour star may never win the Masters Japanese star golfer storms into lead at Masters Dozens gather near Augusta National to protest new Georgia voting law Phil Mickelson’s surge at Masters appears to be too late AUGUSTA, Ga. — Xander Schauffele could have ruined perhaps the greatest golf story ever told. He was among the three players who were one stroke, one swing, one lucky bounce away from tying Tiger Woods in the 2019 Masters, and forcing Woods into a playoff absolutely nobody in creation wanted to see. Thankfully for all viewers not related to Schauffele, or not tethered to his chances by way of a wager, he finished tied for second with Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka at 12-under, giving the 43-year-old Woods, at 13-under, a moment to match Jack Nicklaus’ 1986 Masters victory at age 46. Schauffele had birdied the 13th and 14th holes to take the Masters lead, his 24th and 25th birdies of the week, but closed with four pars to fall just short. “That was, to me,...
    AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Xander Schauffele is in what has become familiar territory. He’s close to the top of the leaderboard in a major championship. He’s hoping Sunday isn’t more of the same when it comes to finishes. Schauffele shot a 4-under 68 on Saturday to get to 7 under through three rounds of the Masters, leaving him four shots back of Hideki Matsuyama going into the final round. He’s had five top-five finishes in majors, including a tie for second — one shot behind winner Tiger Woods — at Augusta National in 2019. And now comes another chance for a major breakthrough. “I think I’m playing really good golf,” Schauffele said. “I was excited for today after yesterday, some of the iron shots I was able to hit. I’m excited for tomorrow as well.” He’s had chances before. Schauffele briefly was atop the leaderboard on the back nine at Augusta National in 2019, but failed to make birdie on the par-5 15th and wound up losing to Woods by one. He didn’t even seem disappointed then, almost thrilled to...

What did they think about that? “We kind of looked at each other and didn’t really hesitate,” Cantlay recalled on Wednesday on the eve of the Players Championship. “We were like, ‘Yeah, put us out in the afternoon, we’ll go get it done.’ And we won that afternoon and played really well.” It was the start of a beautiful friendship that has only blossomed on the golf course, over dinner and while playing cards, particularly gin. While there are several months to go before qualifying for the U.S. Ryder Cup team is completed and captain’s choices...

(Photo by Steph Chambers/Getty Images) Xander Schauffele has been quite candid about a winless drought that is now more than two years long, even admitting to have "choked" at certain times. Yet the 27-year-old continues to put himself on leader boards every time he tees it up. And we mean *every* time. Schauffele's T-15 at the Genesis Invitational was not an instance of him failing to close out a tournament like at the Waste Management Phoenix Open when he was a 54-hole leader. Instead, Schauffele was never really in contention with rounds of 71-69-71-69 at Riviera. However, it was the latest proof that...

Even when Sunday contention turns into Sunday night frustration, he doesn’t lose his mind. As he said after coming up one shot shy of winner Brooks Koepka in the Waste Management Phoenix Open two weeks ago, he’d “lick my wounds and come back.” Some liquid elixir doesn’t hurt. “A couple glasses of wine that night and a good night of sleep was all I needed,” Schauffele said. “You just take the positives from the week, identify sort of the mistakes that were made and move along.” Schauffele, 27, has more runner-up finishes...

It’s certainly been a while since Schauffele has found himself in the winner’s circle on the PGA Tour. Not that he hasn’t come close. Since his last victory, at the 2019 Sentry Tournament of Champions, Schauffele has finished runner-up seven times. Heck, since the beginning of last season, he’s only placed outside of the top 25 twice in 24 starts with his last non-top-25 coming last summer at Harbour Town. Schauffele doesn’t need to be reminded – even if some, including him, would argue he won “low gross” last season at East Lake. He knows....

Defending champion Webb Simpson was among those moving on, as he rallied from his first-round 73 to shoot a 65 on Friday. He is 4 under heading to the weekend, eight shots back of leader Xander Schauffele. © Provided by Golfweek Waste Management Phoenix Open However, among those not moving on to the weekend include 2019 tournament champion Rickie Fowler, who shot a 68 on Friday but it was not enough to overcome his first-round 74. He was even par after 36 holes. Fowler, currently 62nd in the World Ranking, is playing next week at Pebble Beach but is running out of time to qualify for the Masters in April.

He picked the ball up, then had a rules official come over to feel the ground, then was able to take a free drop that gave him a much better lie and led to a nice par. It also led to just about every golf media member and fan calling him out for bending the rules again.

The official deemed that it was an embedded golf ball, so he took his club length and took relief.” Reed, who closed with a 68 for a five-stroke victory Sunday at Torrey Pines, reiterated that officials had reviewed the replay and ruled that he had not violated any rules. But at least a couple of players seemed skeptical that he did everything correct. Xander Schauffele: Talk...

On a day when conditions allowed low scoring at Augusta National, last year’s runner-up knew he could ill afford to fall too far behind. © Provided by Golfweek Masters Tournament - Xander Schauffele His late charge to a 5-under-par 67 began in Amen Corner following a perfect drive on the 505-yard, par-4 11th that left him 184 yards to a hole location tucked behind the pond in the back left portion of the green. On a typical Masters day, that’s a dangerous flag to attack but greens softened by morning rain gave Schauffele the confidence to take dead aim and fire. His approach finished slightly left of the cup, six feet away and he drained the putt, the first of four birdies in his final eight holes. “It’s one...
