Bernardo Heights Take Great Pride in Xander Schauffele's PGA Tour Victory
Xander Schauffele, who grew up playing golf at Bernardo Heights Country Club in San Diego and who is still a Member, birdied the final hole to win this past weekend’s PGA Tour Greenbrier Classic in White Sulpher Springs, Virginia. The victory was 23-year-old rookie Schauffele’s first win on the PGA Tour and earned him a spot in this year’s British Open at Royal Birkdale (July 20-23), this year’s PGA Championship (Aug. 10-17) and next year’s Masters.
Though he is all the buzz today in the world of golf, the staff and the Members at Bernardo Heights, where he began playing at the age of 9, have always believed in him, are ecstatic about his win and will continue to follow his career. Go Xander!
