Xander Schauffele wins 1st major at PGA Championship in Valhalla thriller – Orange County Register

By DOUG FERGUSON

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Xander Schauffele cashed in at just the right time Sunday, making a 6-foot birdie on the final hole to win the PGA Championship for his first major with the lowest score in history major championships.

The Olympic gold medalist got something even more valuable in cash: this massive Wanamaker Trophy after a wild week in Valhalla.

Schauffele closed with a 6-under 65 to beat Bryson DeChambeau, entertaining until the very end with his own 10-foot birdie on the par-5 18th for a 64.

Schauffele became the first player since Phil Mickelson in 2005 at Baltusrol to win the PGA Championship with a birdie on the final hole to win by one. And it took everything he had. His drive on the par-5 18th rolled close enough to the bunker that he had to stand in the sand. He hit it beautifully to the left side, about 35 yards short, and launched 6 feet.
