At the Zurich Classic in New Orleans this past weekend, Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele each claimed their first victories on the PGA Tour for the 2021-2022 season while competing together in the team event. Both Patrick Cantlay, a SuperStroke Ambassador, and Xander Schauffele played using SuperStroke putter grips.
Cantlay and Schauffele shot 59-68-60 over the course of the first three days of the tournament before finishing with an even 72 on Sunday, beating Sam Burns and Billy Horschel by two strokes. Cantlay and Schauffele previously played together as a team in the 2019 Presidents Cup and the 2021 Ryder Cup.
“Watching Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele lead the Zurich Classic for the first three days and then pull off the win on Sunday was exhilarating,” shared Dean Dingman, CEO of SuperStroke. “These two players make an excellent team and give SuperStroke a reason to be a proud partner today.”
This victory marks Patrick Cantlay’s seventh win on the PGA Tour and comes right after he narrowly lost to Jordan Spieth at the RBC Heritage in a playoff this April. In 2021 he also won the FedEx Cup and was voted PGA Tour Player of the Year. Cantlay now sits 5th in the Official World Golf Rankings.
Xander Schauffele has five PGA Tour wins under his belt since going professional in 2015, including this victory at the Zurich Classic. He previously won the Greenbrier Classic and Tour Championship in 2017, the WGC-HSBC Champions in 2018 and the Sentry Tournament of Champions in 2019. He’s currently ranked 12th in the World Rankings.
