Xander Schauffele secured gold for Team USA in the men’s Olympic golf competition, as Rory McIlroy and Paul Casey narrowly missed out on a medal.
Schauffele overcame a back-nine wobble to card a four-under 67 at Kasumigaseki Country Club, seeing the world No 5 end the week on 18 under and a shot clear of Slovakia’s Rory Sabbatini.
Sabbatini had jumped up the leaderboard on the final day after firing an eagle and 10 birdies on his way to a record-breaking 61, while CT Pan came through a seven-man play-off to snatch bronze on the fourth extra hole.
