PGA Championship Round 4 live updates, leaderboard: Xander ...

23 days ago

Xander Schauffele, finally, has won a major championship.

Schauffele, thanks to a clutch birdie at the 18th, beat out Bryson DeChambeau to win the PGA Championship on Sunday afternoon at Valhalla. He posted a final-round 65, which moved him to 21-under par for the week and gave him the one-shot win in Louisville. After coming close so many times, he's now won a major championship.

DeChambeau, who was hanging with Schauffele for much of the day, made a huge long birdie putt at the 18th to get to 20-under. That sparked a massive celebration on the final green. He then went immediately to the range to keep working while Schauffele finished his round. DeChambeau's playing partner, Viktor Hovland, had a birdie look to join them in the lead at the 18th, too, but he ended up three-putting for bogey. That earned him a third-place finish at 18-under on the week.

Schauffele, despite having to stand in the bunker to hit his second shot on the final hole, left himself with about a six foot putt for birdie. Though it rolled around the cup, the putt dropped to give him the win.

Thomas Detry finished in fourth at 15-under on the week alongside Colin Morikawa, and Shane Lowry and Justin Rose finished tied for sixth at 14-under.

Scottie Scheffler, who was arrested on Friday morning outside of the course in Louisville, finished at 13-under on the week after he posted a 6-under round to end the tournament.

Five winners in five years at the PGA Championship

Schauffele is the fifth different golfer to win the PGA Championship in the past five tournaments since Brooks Koepka went back-to-back in 2018 and 2019. Collin Morikawa won in 2020 — the first major of the year because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Phil Mickelson won in 2021, Justin Thomas won in 2022 and Koepka won his third PGA a year ago.

Schauffele quiets the questions about closing tournaments

Xander Schauffele entered the PGA Championship failing to close out two big events earlier this season. He was in the final group at both the Players Championship and the Wells Fargo a week ago and failed to win as Scottie Scheffler took home the title at Sawgrass and Rory McIlroy went nuclear.

Today, he was the closer. He entered with the co-lead at 15-under and shot a 6-under 65 to win by one over Bryson DeChambeau.

Schauffele's 21-under par is the lowest score relative to par in major championship history. He also went wire-to-wire this weekend after shooting a 62 in the first round to open the tournament.

Xander Schauffele wins the PGA Championship

Schauffele gets it to go on the left edge. He's your 2024 PGA Championship winner.

The putt was pretty straight and it hit the left edge of the cup and circled around the back before dropping in.

It's the first major of Schauffele's career.

Schauffele has a makeable birdie putt

Schauffele hits his chip to about 5 or 6 feet. If he makes that birdie putt, he's the 2024 PGA Championship winner.

If he misses and makes par, we've got a three-hole playoff.

Mon, May 20, 2024 at 12:48 AM GMT+2

Xander was standing so far down in the bunker, and he played his approach perfectly. He'll now have an up-and-down look for a birdie to win this thing from about 35 yards out.

Mon, May 20, 2024 at 12:43 AM GMT+2

Bryson is in the zone still as he waits for Xander to finish at 18.

Down on the practice range, DeChambeau is hitting bombs while the tournament plays on a large screen to his left. DeChambeau spares a glance or two at the screen and keeps on swinging.

Xander Schauffele's drive at the 18th stopped just short of the bunker, and it's not great ...

Mon, May 20, 2024 at 12:39 AM GMT+2

Again, here's what the playoff would look like at Valhalla.

In the event of a tie for first place after 72 holes, there will be a three-hole aggregate score playoff on holes #13, #17 and #18.

If still tied, there will be a hole-by-hole playoff on hole #18, #13, #17 and #18 repeated.#PGAChamp

Xander Schauffele pars 17

Xander Schauffele just parred No. 17, so he'll head to the 18th tied up with Bryson DeChambeau at 20-under. A birdie or better will win it for him here. If he pars, we're headed to a playoff.

Mon, May 20, 2024 at 12:29 AM GMT+2

Here's a closer look at Bryson DeChambeau's final putt at the 18th to tie the lead.

Viktor Hovland misses birdie putt

Viktor Hovland just left his birdie look on the low side of the cup. He'll finish at 18-under on the week, which will be good for a solo-third finish at the PGA Championship.

It's now down to Bryson or Xander.

Mon, May 20, 2024 at 12:27 AM GMT+2

Bryson DeChambeau matches the lead at 18

Bryson DeChambeau erupts on the final green. He got his final birdie putt to fall, which moves him into a share of the lead at 20-under.

It'll now be up to Xander Schauffele to win this thing down the stretch.

Mon, May 20, 2024 at 12:25 AM GMT+2

Xander Schauffele is headed to the 17th with a one-shot lead over the field.

With Schauffele headed there - only 8% of the field has made bogey today at 17.

Robert MacIntyre, after barely missing the rare albatross on his approach, just made the second eagle of the day at the 18th. That moved him into the top 10, and under par for his round. The perfect finish that's going to earn him a significant boost in his paycheck this afternoon.

Mon, May 20, 2024 at 12:11 AM GMT+2

Well, Bryson landed in the fairway bunker and Hovland landed in the first cut on the 18th. Not a great start on a must-have birdie hole for either of them.

Mon, May 20, 2024 at 12:09 AM GMT+2

Max Homa crushing the social media game yet again.

Bryson, Hovland head to 18

Bryson DeChambeau missed a good look at birdie at the 17th, so he'll head to the final hole still a shot back of Xander Schauffele. Hovland missed his birdie look, too, which was better than DeChambeau's by far.

The two need to make a move here at the last if they want to win this. Otherwise, Schauffele will need to just hang on.

Justin Thomas' big finish

The Louisville fans showed Justin Thomas plenty of love as he wrapped up his final round at Valhalla.
