“GOLF IS A SPORT WHERE YOU ARE ALWAYS UP AGAINST SO MANY THINGS. IT’S NOT ALWAYS FAIR, AND YOU AREN’T ALWAYS HAPPY WITH THE WAY THINGS HAPPEN. LIKE LIFE, YOU LEARN TO DEAL WITH THOSE CHALLENGES AND OVERCOME THEM.”
Xander Schauffele, World Number 12, on the cancellation of PGA Tour Events. Golf is the biggest part of my life, and it was taken away. When everything happened, I was just looking for the date when I could get back out and play. I have a new appreciation for the sport. I’m ready to come back.
