The American started the day five shots behind leader Gary Woodland but finished one clear of his compatriot.

"The evolution of our streaming partnership with Twitter over the past three years has led to extraordinary feedback from our fans globally", said Rick Anderson, Chief Media Officer of the PGA TOUR. His chip-in for eagle at the ninth boosted him into second place, just one shot back. He holed a 107-yard wedge for eagle at No. 12.

Schauffele completed his remarkable round with a two-putt birdie from 15 feet at the par-five last to edge back ahead, with Woodland unable to match the final-hole gain to force a play-off. "This was in sort of dramatic fashion and it turned into a birdie fest coming down the stretch". "Obviously I needed to birdie the last there, but, I'm playing great. We kept our head down and made a run for it".

"Anything that was right-to-left I missed on the high side and anything left-to-right I missed on the low side".

It was a tough loss for Woodland. He never shot worse than 68 all week and was the only player in the winners-only field to have all four rounds in the 60s. "Honestly, it was a insane day", Schauffele said after signing for a 23-under total of 269.

Rory McIlroy briefly caught him for the lead until the birdies stopped falling.

Justin Thomas (65) finished third on 18-under, while McIlroy faded with a 72 to finish eight shots back tied for fourth. He tapped in for birdie and a 62, posting a target of 23-under 269.

As for Leishman, a two under 71 left him feeling like he'd had a awful day in comparison to Schauffele. He chose to wait in the trailer, listening to traffic over the radios, taking a second to realize that Woodland had missed his putt and it was over.

Before long, he had a lei around his neck and the trophy in his hands, along with one other perk.

Twitter will globally live-stream and distribute close to 140 hours of PGA Tour action for free this season, after renewing and expanding its current partnership.

Brooks Koepka closed with a 69 to finish 24th, meaning Justin Rose returns to No. 1 in the world.

He found no consolation in losing to a guy who shot 62 in a Kona wind, the tougher of the two directions on the west end of Maui.

"My attitude was much better today, I didn't press at all, I was very patient, it's just something I'm going to have to persist in, just keep putting myself in these positions and honestly, I don't think anyone could have beaten Xander today", McIlroy said.

None of those shots were better than the 200-yard approach he fired into the green at the par-four 17th, the hardest hole on the course, before reading the breaking nine-foot birdie putt perfectly. I had killed the par-5s all week this week, which is what you got to do out here.

However, the Northern Irishman is adamant he now knows what he's doing wrong and how he can return to winning ways for the rest of year, including at Augusta.

"I've just got to go about my business".

His par left Woodland in solo second, and marked the seventh time he has failed to convert a 54-hole lead or share of the lead into a victory on the PGA Tour. "I gave myself plenty of chances, I hit most of the fairways, I hit most of the greens, I just couldn't get the ball to drop".
