Xander Schauffele’s hangover after Team USA’s Ryder Cup win was his worst in years.
“My wife said she hadn’t seen me that bad since college,” said Schauffele, a San Diego State alum, while speaking at The Summit Club Tuesday ahead of the CJ Cup this weekend in Las Vegas.
“I’m speaking for a lot of people that I talked to, we all let it hang loose in the end and had a really good time,” he recalled of the celebrations after Team USA’s 19-9 win against Team Europe last month.
“I had to sober up after my little episode there in Wisconsin, so I’m feeling much better, much more alive,” the 27-year-old admitted.
Team USA partied hard after the 2021 Ryder Cup win, and much of the team’s beer-chugging, stogie-puffing festivities were caught on camera. Viral videos show Schauffele kneeling on the green while chugging High Noon seltzers.
A separate clip from Team USA’s post-tournament press conference showed Schauffele smoking a cigar.
The celebrations also included the WAGs from Team USA. The wives and and girlfriends of Team USA’s 12-man Ryder Cup roster chugged champagne and showered the golfers with love on the green.
Brooks Koepka enjoyed Michelob Ultra, while his fiancee Jena Sims sipped Moet from a massive bottle in photos on social media.
Meanwhile, college sweethearts Katherine Zhu and Collin Morikawa sealed the Ryder Cup win with a kiss on the green.
