Coming out on top of an impossibly crowded leaderboard, Xander Schauffele fended off a late charge from Bryson DeChambeau to win the 2024 PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club.

Sunday’s final round meandered through the afternoon, but it perked up at the end, with Bryson making a clutch birdie on 18 to tie the lead.

Schauffele still had more holes to play at that point, including the par-5 18th. Holding serve with par until the last, Xander’s tee shot ended up in an awkward position on the lip of a fairway bunker. With a compromised stance, he laid up in the perfect position short-left of the green, and proceeded to pitch to six feet.

Facing down a putt for his first major, Schauffele held it together, using most of the hole and making a winning birdie.

We’ll obviously have a lot more on Xander and the tournament as a whole for you in tomorrow’s Fried Egg Golf newsletter, but if you’re desperate for more PGA Championship content, we certainly have you covered.
