It was the first Olympic gold for the USA in individual golf after the 1900s.
Schauffele’s father, Stefan Schauffele - a former decathlete stated for his son, “It’s sort of an opportunity that I didn’t have. And now, I get to live it because he has it.”
With the 18th hole closed in the most picturesque wonder of gameplay, Schauffele took a one-stroke lead to win the game. From the roughs to the fairway and finally the winning hole, his final round closing at 67 was a master wonder to watch.
