Xander Schauffele's father 'threatening' the golfer's buddies after placing the ban on his son.
Xander Schauffele’s father ‘threatening’ the golfer’s buddies after placing the ban on his son.

Xander Schauffele’s dad “threatened” his son’s friends after banning them from seeing a video of his golf swing. Xander Schauffele said that his dad was so adamant that his friends wouldn’t record his swing because of this.

Schauffele, who is 30 years old, just won his first PGA World Championship by one shot over fellow American Bryson DeChambeau at Valhalla Golf Course. A lot of sports stars have their fathers as coaches. Schauffele’s father, Stefan, has said there is “no chance” that his son will join LIV Golf.

Schauffele is currently being coached by Chris Como, who is giving him a lot of useful tips on how to improve his game. The California-born golfer learned how to play the game from Schauffele dad in the past.

His father always planned two steps ahead when teaching his son when the 30-year-old was a young star. So much so that Stefan wouldn’t let a young, hungry Xander watch a video of his golf swing to see where he went wrong.

Schauffele said on the “Pardon My Take” show, “He is definitely a character. His nickname is the ogre.” “He handles conversations and tough situations in an ogre fashion – he’s not afraid to get in your face to put it like that,” says the Express.

As a parent, Stefan always made sure that his son was ready, but he also knew that being too exact with his lessons could be harmful. This was so strong that Stefan always said no when Xander asked to see a video of his golf swing when he was younger.

Schauffele admitted that his father would threaten his friends into not making a movie so that no one would be caught.

Schauffele laughed and said, “Yeah” when asked if it was true that he had threatened his friends.’Come on, I need to see what’s going on. I know this makes you feel bad,’ I’ll say. “Sorry, man, I can’t do it. Get someone else to do it,” they say.

Stefan still spends a lot of time with his son, but his signature stetson hat and linen shirt were missing in Kentucky. Xander celebrated by hugging his wife, signing his record, and calling his father, who was living in a small shipping container in Hawaii and spent a lot of time there.

Even though he works with Como, he still talks about how his father helped him with his job.

“He’s been my coach forever,” Schauffele said when asked about how his dad had affected him.

“I actually hired Chris Como in November of last year, so I’ve known him for a long time.” A friend of both of us put us in touch years ago, so my dad knows Chris pretty well.Chris did a little golf channel thing with my dad and me while he worked for them, so he felt at ease. My dad will always be my dad, but when it comes to golf, he kind of passed the buck to Chris and didn’t think he needed to be there if I was there with my team.
