What’s happening at PGA? Xander Schauffele cards fourth 62 in major history, his second

By admin Jun5,2024

Xander Schauffele is on fire early – like really on fire – at Valhalla.

Schauffele birdied eight of his first 14 holes before wrapping up a 9-under 62, the fourth 62 in major championship history – and Schauffele’s second.

Here are the three other instances of major 62s (no player has shot 61 or better):

  • Branden Grace, 2017 Open

  • Rickie Fowler, 2023 U.S. Open

  • Xander Schauffele, 2023 U.S. Open

When Schauffele finished, he had Tony Finau as his closest competitor, at 6 under, three shots back. Rory McIlroy was another shot back, at 5 under.

Jordan Spieth, Cam Smith and Max Homa were all at 3 under. Spieth, who can complete the career Grand Slam this week, birdied four of his first nine holes to turn in 3 under.

And reigning PGA champion Brooks Koepka was 1 under.
