Quick Glance: Xander Schauffele triumphs at British Open for 2nd Major
  • Xander Schauffele emerged victorious at the British Open on Sunday, claiming his second major of the year. With an impressive performance at Royal Troon and a 6-under 65, he overcame a two-shot deficit, enabling the Americans to achieve a clean sweep of the majors for the first time since 1982.

  • Playing flawlessly in strong, chilly winds, Schauffele pulled ahead with three birdies in a four-hole stretch on the back nine, turning a two-shot deficit into a lead of up to three strokes.

  • Given the challenging conditions at Royal Troon, including wind and heavy air off the Firth of Clyde, Schauffele's 65 deserves recognition as one of the remarkable closing rounds in British Open history.

  • The 30-year-old player from San Diego became the first to win his first two majors in the same season since Jordan Spieth in 2015. Additionally, he continued American dominance at this Scottish links venue, securing his place as the seventh Open champion in the last eight visits to Royal Troon.
