Professional golfer Xander Schauffele has exploded on the golf scene since turning pro.

The American star has yet to win at a major tournament, but he does have four PGA Tour wins to his name.

Schauffele is hoping for a big year in 2021, and perhaps no one is rooting for him more than his loving girlfriend Maya Lowe.

The happy couple met in college despite attending different schools. Schauffele played golf at San Diego State University, while Lowe attended the University of California, San Diego.

Lowe graduated from UCSD with a degree in science and public health and earned a Masters degree in health care administration from the University of Maryland.

Lowe, who speaks fluent Japanese, can often be spotted in the crowd supporting Schauffele. She was even his caddie during the Par-3 tournament at Augusta in 2018.

Xander Schauffele’s Golf Career

Xander Schauffele was a star golfer during his youth.

As a teenager, he won the California State High School Championship in 2011. At SDSU, Schauffele was named Big West Conference Freshman of the Year and earned First Team All-Big West Honors.

After graduating college, Schauffele turned pro in 2015. He started on the Web.com Tour and made his PGA Tour debut CareerBuilder Challenge in 2017 before impressing at the 2017 U.S. Open.

Just a few weeks after his showing at Erin Hills, Schauffele won his first PGA Tour event at the Greenbrier Classic. Later that year, he became the first rookie to win at the Tour Championship, beating out Justin Thomas by one stroke, which helped him earn Rookie of the Year honors.

Schauffele joined the European Tour in 2018 and earned a victory at the WGC-HSBC Champions event in Shanghai, defeating Tony Finau on the first hole of the playoff. He also placed second at the Open Championship the same year

He earned his next victory in 2019 at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, and shot 11-under par in the final round to surpass Gary Woodland.

He placed second at the Masters that year, finishing behind Tiger Woods. In December 2019, Schauffele featured for the United States during the Presidents Cup and helped Team USA earn a 16-14 win.

Much of Schauffele’s success in golf should be credited to his family. His father, Stefan Schauffele, has been his swing coach since Xander was just a child, and is arguably the golfer’s biggest supporter.

Throughout his career as professional golfer, Schauffele has made over $17 million in career earnings, helping him build an impressive estimated net worth of $10 million.
