Did you watch the Tour Championship this weekend? Although Justin Thomas did not win the last tournament, he was able to win the FedEx Cup title. The winner, Xander Schauffele, earned $3.5 million !!!
Xander Schauffele was the winner of the Tour Championship. This is his first year on the PGA Tour, and the Tour Championship was his SECOND win! With such an impressive rookie season, Xander earned the ROOKIE OF the YEAR award. He was in contention this year at the U.S. Open Championship, and he won the Greenbrier Classic.
Schaufelle was first recruited by Long Beach State University, and later transferred to San Diego State University for his final two years. After being an Aztec for a couple years, Xander went to Q-School to qualify for the Web.com Tour, and first year earned him a PGA Tour Card.
Do not sleep on this kid! He has a lot of potential to be added to the Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth chaos.
