Xander Schauffele clinched gold for the US with a one-stroke victory as South Africa-born Rory Sabbatini claimed an unlikely silver for adopted nation Slovakia.

Sabbatini, who took Slovakia citizenship at the end of 2018 after marrying wife Martina, had stormed home with birdies on 17 and 18 in an Olympic record 61 to finish 17-under and put pressure on Schauffele.The 27-year-old American stumbled with a bogey on the 14th to fall back to a share of the gold medal position with Sabbatini, who was waiting nervously in the clubhouse.

It took an eight-foot birdie putt on the 17th for Schauffele to break clear by a stroke but more nerves were to come as he slashed his drive into the deep rough on 18.Hitting his recovery into the fairway, Schauffele composed himself before producing a sparkling iron shot that landed four feet from the pin, allowing him to knock in the title-winning par.

Schauffele brought his swing coach father Stefan to the Games, nearly 40 years after the former decathlete's dreams of representing Germany at the Olympics were crushed when a car crash left him blind in one eye."For me, I really wanted to win for my dad. I am sure he is crying somewhere right now," said Schauffele. headtopics.com
