PGA Championship: Schauffele breaks scoring record with 62

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Xander Schauffele broke the PGA Championship scoring record, taking advantage of rain-melted conditions at Valhalla on Thursday with a 9-under 62 to set the initial goal.

Schauffele also tied the major championship record – he was already on that list with a 62 last year at the US Open – on a remarkable scoring day.

Schauffele, who is coming off a runner-up finish last week at the Wells Fargo Championship, played the back nine in 31, then made three birdies over a four-hole stretch in the middle of the front nine, all putts within 10 feet.

His ninth and final birdie was a long two-putt on the par-5 seventh.

Branden Grace at the 2017 British Open at Royal Birkdale was the first to post a 62 in a major tournament. Schauffele and Rickie Fowler each had a 62 in the first round of the U.S. Open last year at Los Angeles Country Club.

It remained to determine the extent of his advance. Tony Finau was at 6 under and had four holes to play, while Rory McIlroy had three straight birdies and was four behind Schauffele with two holes to play.

The previous score at the PGA was 63. One of them was Jose Maria Olazabal at Valhalla 10 years ago.
