2019 Sentry Tournament of Champions Wrap-Up

Anyone who expected the first PGA Tour event of the 2019 calendar year to be exciting was not disappointed, as Xander Schauffele stormed from behind with an 11-under 61 to win the Sentry Tournament of Champions by one stroke over Gary Woodland. Woodland began the day with a three stroke lead over Rory McIlroy and five ahead of Schauffele, and played steadily on the opening 9 holes, with no bogeys and birdies on 5 and 9. Meanwhile, Xander opened with a bogey, then started his torrid run with birdies on the 3rd, 5th, 6th, and 7th holes, then capped off his run with an eagle on 9 to shoot 31 and put himself in contention. After pars at 10 and 11, Xander made another eagle on the par-4 12th, then birdied 14, 15, 17, and 18 to shoot an impressive 30 on the par-37 back nine. Gary Woodland made birdies on 11, 15 and 17, and needed a birdie on 18 to force a playoff; however, his 12 footer on the 18th just missed, and the result is Xander Schauffele’s 4th career PGA Tour victory and the 2nd of his 2018-2019 season. He also takes the lead in the FedEx Cup standings.

Next week, the PGA Tour heads to Waialae Country Club for the Sony Open in Hawaii.
