Xander Schauffele Wife | Girlfriend

ander Schauffele is playing in the Masters this weekend. Since turning professional in 2015, he has won four PGA Tour Championships.
For the past several years, Schauffele has had the support of his girlfriend, Maya Lowe. The two have been dating since 2014, according to The Sun.
According to her LinkedIn page, Lowe is slated to graduate with a master’s degree in Health Care Administration/Management later this year.
Schauffele and Lowe tend to keep their personal lives off of social media, but from time to time, Schauffele has been known to share photos of his lady. The last photo he posted of Lowe was back in July.
Back in July 2018, the two attended a wedding and Schauffele shared a snap within an Instagram post. The couple was on-hand to celebrate the nuptials of Schauffele’s caddie, Austin Kaiser.
Schauffele looked dapper in a pair of navy slacks, a white button-down, and a mint green tie, as part of the wedding party. Lowe looked lovely in a navy blue knee-length dress.
Kaiser and his bride had a gorgeous outdoor wedding at the Greengate Ranch & Vineyard, located in San Luis Obispo, California.
“Greengate Ranch & Vineyard has a history dating back to the 1800’s as a dairy farm, but is best known for its rise to international acclaim under the ownership of Jay and Dorothy Stream, who occupied the ranch from the 1950’s until 2012. The Streams bred world class Arabian horses after turning this majestic piece of land into a top-notch horse facility. His international recognition popularized the ranch as it became home to world-class Arabian events and extravagant galas and auctions attended by celebrities, royalty, and luminaries from the Middle East who traveled halfway across the globe to visit Greengate Farms,” reads a description on the venue’s website.
Lowe caddied for Schauffele at Augusta’s Par 3 in April 2018. He shared a photo of himself and Lowe on social media — and it looks like they had a great time.
“Glad to have this one on the bag for the Par 3 contest,” Schauffele captioned the pic. Lowe commented a short time later, making a joke about not getting paid to caddie.
“Where’s my cut?” she joked, as evidenced by her follow-up comment; the kissy-face emoji.
The outing wasn’t Schauffele’s best overall; he made four birdies before his shot on the eighth hole, which ended up in the water.
“Just being here, being on the grounds, seeing the fans, this Par-3 Contest, the whole experience has been really cool and really special,” Schauffele said after finishing up, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

San Diego Golfer Xander Schauffele Ties for 2nd at The Masters

While most people may be talking about the Masters finish because of Tiger Woods’ triumph, one local golfer can be proud of his best finish ever at the event – in a three way tie for second, one shot behind the leader.

Xander Schauffele started Sunday at 8-under. Then, there was a seven-hole stretch that included five birdies that capped on the 14th hole.

He reached 12-under and took the lead but slowed down from there.

“What a week! So close but pumped for my finish in the end,” Schauffele posted to Twitter. “Thanks for all of the support this week @TheMasters. Congrats @TigerWoods!”

  • Convention Center Expansion Initiative to Appear on March 2020 Ballot

Schauffele finished in a tie for second place, one back of Woods. While it wasn’t a win, Schauffele got a clearer idea of his potential.

“I told my caddy on the 18th, I shot one over my first round and clawed my way back to where I’m at now,” he told CBS Sports after the competition. “We just proved to ourselves we can win here. Which is an awesome feeling.”

Schauffele attended Scripps Ranch High School and San Diego State University. In January, the San Diego native got his first chance to play with Woods at the Farmers Insurance Open.

Professional career

After turning professional in June 2015, Schauffele entered the 2015 Web.com Tour Qualifying Tournament in fall. He was runner up in the first stage at Southern Dunes GC in Maricopa, Arizona. He went on to win the second stage at Oak Valley GC in Beaumont, California and ultimately earned his Web.com Tour card in the finals in Florida in a tie for 40th.
2016 Web.com Tour
In 2016, Schauffele played a full season (23 events) on the Web.com Tour. He finished 26th on the regular-season money list, missing a PGA Tour card for 2017 by less than $1000.00, but went on to earn a card through the Web.com Tour Finals by finishing 15th on the Finals money list (excluding the 25 regular-season graduates).
2016–17 PGA Tour: two wins, Rookie of the Year
Schauffele made his PGA Tour debut at the CareerBuilder Challenge in La Quinta, California. In his first round at the 2017 U.S. Open held at Erin Hills, Schauffele recorded a bogey-free 6-under-par 66. This marked the first time in U.S. Open history for a player to shoot a bogey-free round of 66 or better in his national championship debut.
Furthermore, Schauffele is one of only 15 players to ever reach 10 under par at a U.S. Open.[11] After his opening 66, he shot rounds of 73-70-69 to finish in a tie for fifth place, earning him an exemption into the 2018 U.S. Open.
Only three weeks later, on July 9, 2017, Schauffele recorded his first PGA Tour victory at the Greenbrier Classic. He started the final round three shots behind leader Sebastián Muñoz, who had led since the first round. Schauffele shot a 3-under-par 67, which included two birdies in his final three holes, to win by one stroke over Robert Streb. With the win, he earned exemptions into the Open Championship, via the Open Qualifying Series, the PGA Championship and the 2018 Masters Tournament.
Schauffele began the 2017 FedEx Cup Playoffs 33rd in the standings. Entering the third and penultimate leg of the playoffs, the 2017 BMW Championship, he was 32nd, needing to move up at least two spots to advance to the 2017 Tour Championship. Schauffele played the final six holes of the tournament in 6-under-par with a birdie-birdie-eagle-birdie-par-birdie finish and rose to 26th.
At the 2017 Tour Championship, Schauffele birdied the 72nd hole to win by one stroke over Justin Thomas, becoming the first rookie ever to win the Tour Championship. Schauffele’s win also marked the first time a rookie has won any FedEx Cup playoff event.
The win moved Schauffele to third place in the final FedEx Cup standings, bettering the previous best mark by a rookie held by Jordan Spieth by four positions. The win moved Schauffele to 32nd in the Official World Golf Ranking, up 267 spots from his 2016 year-end finish of No. 299, and gave him a three-year PGA Tour exemption through the 2019–20 season.
Schauffele was voted “Rookie of the Year 2017” by his peers on October 2, 2017. He is the fourth member of the high school class of 2011 to earn PGA Tour Rookie of the Year honors, joining Jordan Spieth (2013), Daniel Berger (2015) and Emiliano Grillo (2016).
2017–18 PGA Tour
At the beginning of 2018, Schauffele switched equipment manufacturers, joining team Callaway. It is worth mentioning that although Schauffele’s rookie season on the PGA Tour was the 2016–17 season, by the time the 2017–18 season concluded, of the 27 events played, Schauffele had played 17 venues that were new to him.
On May 13, 2018, Schauffele finished T2 at the 2018 Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass with a score of 14 under par.
Schauffele tied for second with a score of six-under-par at the 2018 Open Championship at Carnoustie Golf Links.
Schauffele began the 2018 FedEx Cup Playoffs in 28th position in the standings. Entering the third of four events in the playoff series, the 2018 BMW Championship, he was 41st, needing to move up at least eleven spots to advance to the Tour Championship. Schauffele finished in a tie for third to rise to 18th position. That finish allowed him the opportunity to attempt to defend his 2017 Tour Championship title. Schauffele ultimately finished T7 at the 2018 Tour Championship, while placing 15th in the season-long FedEx Cup
2018 European Tour
Schauffele joined the 2018 European Tour as an associate member. With his win at the 2018 WGC-HSBC Champions, Schauffele rose in the European Tour’s Order of Merit, the year-long points race dubbed the European Tour Race to Dubai, to 4th position.
Schauffele entered the European Tour final event, the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai, in 5th position. With a final round score of 6-under-par 66, which equaled the lowest score of the day, Schauffele finished T16. This ensured a season-ending 4th position on the Order of Merit and participation in the 2018 European Tour’s bonus pool.
2018–19 PGA Tour
On October 28, 2018, Schauffele won the WGC-HSBC Champions event in Shanghai, China at the Sheshan Golf Club. Schauffele won on the first playoff hole (number 18), defeating Tony Finau.
On January 6, 2019, Schauffele won the Sentry Tournament of Champions at The Plantation Course at Kapalua Resort in Maui, Hawaii. He shot 11-under-par 62 in the final round to pass Gary Woodland, who held a 5-shot lead on Schauffele entering the final round. Schauffele’s final round 62 tied the course record at The Plantation Course. He is tied with K.J. Choi (2003), Graeme McDowell (2011), Chris Kirk (2015) and Jason Day (2015).
On April 14, Schauffele tied for second in the Masters Tournament, one stroke behind champion Tiger Woods.

Xander Schauffele Parents, Family & Background

ander Schauffele has splendidly built off his 2016-17 Rookie of the Year campaign, where he earned his first top-5 finish at a majors championship with his 5th place showing at the 2017 U.S. Open at Erin Hills. The next season, he tied for 2nd at the 2018 British Open at Carnoustie with a 6-under par.
He finds himself on familiar ground at the 2019 Masters, currently sitting in 2nd place with a 6-under entering third round action Saturday. He trails at 5-way tie at 7-under, and is currently in lockstep with Dustin Johnson, Tiger Woods and Justin Harding.
Like Woods, Schauffele is a biracial Southern California native. He was born Alexander Victor Schauffele on October 25, 1993, in San Diego.
As far as Schauffele’s nationality goes, his father, Stefan, is German and French (hence his last name) and his mother, Ping Yi, was born in Taiwan and raised in Japan.
Stefan Schauffele was a “German Olympic hopeful in the decathlon,” according to The San Diego Union-Tribune. However, he was involved in a head-on car accident with a drunk driver that ended his career. A shard of windshield glass pierced his left eye.
Stefan ended up moving to San Diego, California, where he attended then-named United State International Academy. In 1998, he met Ping-Yi. According to PGA.com:
Xander Schauffele TwittXander actually comes from a long line of athletes. Before Stefan there was Richard “Molly” Schauffele.er
Also like Woods, Schauffele has an extra motivational relationship with his father. Stefan, who eventually became a golf pro in Hawaii and San Diego, trains vigorously with Xander, who describes the sessions rather cheerfully as “explosive” and “electric.”
“There is no great golfer or sportsman who isn’t an alpha male,” Stefan said. “You have to have this fire and avoid all emotion — destroy your opponent and later take him in arms.
“Xander is very stubborn and very alpha male, and I’m certainly exactly like that. We are two guys who were absolutely programmed to collide.”
This approach has put a chip on Xander’s shoulders, according to his putting coach Derek Uyeda.
“He’s got a chip on his shoulder the size of the Earth,” Uyeda told the San Diego Tribune. “Xander didn’t come from money. He didn’t even have a car at this time last year because it broke down. He had to borrow his brother’s car.”
From that, Xander has earned nearly $12 million in his short time on the PGA Tour. He has a chance for a major paycheck ($11 million) and a green jacket with a quality final two days at Augusta National this weekend.
