Quick Quotes

Q. What a showing it's been this week. You've been spot-on all week long. Obviously it just happened, but you're a major champion, major championship record scoring. Any idea how you're feeling right now?

XANDER SCHAUFFELE: I am very satisfied. I'm tired. Once I sat down in scoring, I felt a little bit more tired. But just a whirlwind of emotions.

I knew I had to birdie the last hole, looking up at the board. I was trying to squeak a birdie in there somehow just to have some kind of cushion. It was a hectic birdie, as well, but it was awesome. I kept telling myself, I need to earn this, I need to prove this to myself, and this is my time.

Q. Not that it would have happened, but after the bogey at 10 and then flagged it at 11, it's like, I'm not letting this happen. That was what it looked like from outside the ropes.

XANDER SCHAUFFELE: Yeah, I've had that feeling in the past where I've done that and I wasn't able to convert the putt, and finally I got a couple putts to lip in, hit some decent putts with better pace, the ones that were a little more straight uphill. It's exactly what I told myself. Just not today.

Q. How much has the work with Chris Como been part of this, what happened this week?

XANDER SCHAUFFELE: Yeah, it's been tremendous. He's helped me a ton. He's given me so much confidence in my ball-striking ability, unlocking a few pieces to it. I did hit some really nice shots coming down the stretch. Just some balls ended up in some weird places, but it's all good now.

Q. We started the week talking about how many times it takes to get close to victory. What happened today? What was the X-factor?

XANDER SCHAUFFELE: I stayed very patient. I was looking up at the board. There's been times where I tried to look away from it until the back nine, but today I was looking at it.

I just wanted to be aware of everything. I wanted to know exactly where I stood. I wanted to know -- address my feelings when they were happening. That bogey was -- I felt like there was a chance I could hit it over the green there, and if I could go back, I would have probably bumped it and played it differently based on the lie, but to bounce back with two birdies was tremendous, and I just kept fighting.

Q. If you look back on your career, what would be the moments with your golf, with your family, with everything that took you here?

XANDER SCHAUFFELE: Yeah, my family and my team. They've been the most concrete thing that I have. My family, my wife and my team, everyone that's on it, they know who they are. But they're steadfast. They keep me in line, and it's so awesome for me to win one for them so we can all celebrate together.
