With a birdie on the final hole, Xander Schauffele claimed a thrilling one-stroke win over Bryson DeChambeau at the 2024 PGA Championship. The San Diego native spoke to his hometown radio station, 97.3 The Fan, to discuss the legacy-defining major victory.

Appearing on the Ben & Woods show, the 30-year-old PGA Tour star talked:

  • Comparing wins at the PGA Championship and the 2020 Olympics. (Shauffele said the Olympic win was more for his father, while the major victory was his childhood dream.)
  • His father Stefan’s continued coaching and advisement. (Stefan sends “dad sayings” by text.)
  • His relationship with Ryder Cup partner Patrick Cantlay, who’s now one of the best players without a major title. (“It’s all love.” Only a matter of time when Cantlay wins a major.)
  • A second major at the U.S. Open at Pinehurst? (Schauffele, surprisingly, has never played Pinehurst.)
  • Nerves and pressure on the winning putt. (His hands were a “little shaky.”)
