Xander Schauffele's winning WITB: 2017 Tour Championship

Xander Schauffele

Xander Schauffele all but locked in his award for Rookie of the Year after capturing the season-ending Tour Championship at East Lake.

The 23-year-old used mostly TaylorMade equipment as he edged out FedEx Cup champion Justin Thomas by one stroke, concluding a PGA Tour season that has included two wins, four top tens and 11 top 25s.

Armed with his 2017 M2 driver, Schauffele finished the week with a 314.5 yard average off the tee and hit more than 60% of fairways. His massive 347-yard drive on the 18th put him in perfect position to make that final birdie.

As well as driving prowess, Schauffele also put on a ball-striking display hitting just under 71% of greens in regulation.
