Xander Shauffele wins Tournament of Champions


Once again Xander Shauffele came from behind to win his fourth tournament, the Tournament of Champions at Kapalua Plantation Course, Hawaii at the weekend.

Xander beat Gary Woodland by one shot after scoring a course record equalling 62 in the final round from being five shots back at the start and bogeying the first hole. He had three straight birdies before chipping in for eagle on the ninth and making another eagle on 12 when he holed his wedge shot. He then had back to back birdies on 14 and 15 and narowly missed an eagle on the last hole.

Xander, 25, won the Tour Championship in his rookie year but still sees hi,self as an underdog. He plans to keep his foot down and keep chasing those in front of him.
