Tokyo, Aug 1, 2021- Xander Schauffele of the United States won the men’s golf gold at the Tokyo Olympics with 18-under-par 266 on Sunday at the Kasumigaseki Country Club, in Kawagoe City, Saitama Prefecture.

Schauffele said grabbing the Olympic gold medal is the biggest win of his career. “I really wanted to win for my dad. I am sure he is crying somewhere right now. I kind of wanted this one more than any other.”

India’s Anirban Lahiri had a one-over in the final round and finished joint 42nd with three others with a five-under for the tournament. Udayan Mane was 56th with a one-over in the final round and a total of three-over.

Heading into the final round on a tied-28th position, Lahiri carded a one-over 72 in the final round to slip further to the tied-42nd spot with a total score of five-under 279 (67, 72, 68, 72).

Olympic debutant Mane too shot a one-over 72 in his fourth round to finish 56th in the 60-player field with a score of three-over 287 (76, 69, 70, 72).

Slovak golfer Rory Sabbatini grabbed the silver, one shot behind. The world No. 204 player surprised the course with an Olympic record-setting 10-under-par round of 61 on Sunday.

“To shoot 10-under on this golf course surprised me. I played nicely but still, 10-under is a tough score to make on this golf course.” Sabbatini said.

“Just being here was an honour, to be a Slovakian representative. To be here and the medal is something that hopefully really gets the fires started to build golf in Slovakia, especially with the juniors.”

Chinese Taipei’s Pan Cheng-tsung clinched the bronze after a play-off.

The women’s competition will take place from August 4 to 7.  (Agency)
