After speaking to the press, Reed headed to the short-game area for some late-afternoon putting practice alongside Woods (in the background, Bryson DeChambeau neared hour three of his post-round range session). Several dozen spectators looked on, but most were on their way out for the day. The peaceful scene clashed with what was happening on social media, where Reed is considered among golf’s chief villains.

Coupled with Jordan Spieth's victory at The Open Championship, marked the first time since 1923 (Bobby Jones/U.S. Open, Gene Sarazen/PGA Championship) that different players aged 25 or younger won in back-to-back majors.

On July 16, 2019, at the 2019 Open Championship, the R&A found Schauffele's driver failed to meet CT test requirements. Schauffele was forced to scramble for a replacement driver. The R&A made 30 random inspections of players' clubs and Schauffele's driver was found to be one of four drivers of the 30 strong sample not to comply with the CT test requirements. The manufacturers brands that had drivers fail the CT test are: Callaway, Ping, Taylormade. It also has become public knowledge, that during a testing in May 2019 at the Diamond Cup Golf event on the Japan Golf Tour, some 15 drivers in the field had failed the very same CT test requirements. Rumors, that Schauffele's driver was the only one and additionally the first one ever to fail the R&A's CT test were proven unfounded and false.[31][32][33]

He led the field with 25 birdies, becoming the third player since 1980 to have 25 or more birdies in a single Masters, joining Phil Mickelson (25 in 2001) and Jordan Spieth (28 in 2015).[25]
After the U.S. Open, Rahm turned professional, which meant that he forfeited his exemption into the 2016 Open Championship. The next week Rahm played in his first event as a pro at the Quicken Loans National. He held or shared the lead for the first two rounds and finished tied for third place, four strokes behind the winner, Billy Hurley III.[11] The finish was enough for Rahm to regain entry into The Open, as the Quicken Loans National was part of the Open Qualifying Series. Rahm finished tied runner-up in the RBC Canadian Open, securing Special Temporary Member status for the remainder of the season.[12] He gained enough points as a non-member to earn a PGA Tour card for 2017.
Schauffele, who is known exclusively as Xander Schauffele in the golfing world, was born in San Diego, California to a German/French naturalized immigrant father and a Taiwanese naturalized immigrant mother. Schauffele's father has been his only swing coach throughout his golfing career.[2] The Schauffele teaching philosophy relies heavily on basic ball flight laws and golf club mechanics – as a result Schauffele had not seen his own swing until about age 18.[3]
