PGA: An extra dose of confidence for Schauffele


Xander Schauffele is ready for the British Open. The American golfer infused himself with an extra dose of confidence just before the grand slam tournament on Sunday, winning the Scottish Open Genesis. 

During his final round, the he 28-year-old was content to play the par of 70, under four birdies and as many bogeys, to preserve the lead and get his hands on the winner's trophy. 

Schaulele thus beat his compatriot Kurt Kitayama by a shot. The latter also made a good comeback, he who stalled four birdies and a bogey on the front nine, before succeeding two other birdies on the second half of the course, more precisely at the 11th and 14th flags. He posted a score of -7 at the time, but a bogey in 17th destroyed all his chances.

For their part, the Canadians still in contention did not have success in their last outing on the course of the “Renaissance” club.

Nick Taylor gave a card of 72 (+2) and thus fell 11 positions. He finished the event with a cumulative 285 (+5), earning him a tie for 55th place. For his part, Corey Conners hit the white object 73 (+3) times during the last day of activities. He thus took the 61st rank, tied, with a cumulative of 287 (+7).
