Schauffele making US debut at Presidents
MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) Steve Stricker cared only about securing a spot in the first U.S. Open in his home state of Wisconsin. Still, there was something about the PGA Tour rookie in his group during a 36-hole qualifier that intrigued him.
It wasn't just the name: Xander Schauffele.
It certainly wasn't the resume. Schauffele had missed the cut in half of the 18 PGA Tour events he had played and was No. 345 in the world ranking. And it wasn't the pedigree. He played at San Diego State, hardly a college golf power.
