Xander Schauffele keeps making up for lost time.
Winless for more than two years, Schauffele picked up his fourth win in the past 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 Open Championship at St. Andrews. Schauffele heads to the home of golf as one of the hottest players in the world.
It was the first time the PGA Tour co-sanctioned a European tour event.
“It’s just an honor to win the first one,” said Schauffele, who now has seven career titles on the PGA Tour.
