After fast Zozo start, Xander Schauffele falters and looks to figure out what went wrong

Gold medal winner Xander Schauffele was 3 under par through his first 5 holes in the opening round of the Zozo Championship, before finishing with an even-par 70.

Schauffele made four bogeys and just one birdie the rest of the way on Thursday at Accordia Golf Narashino Country Club. He’s seven back of leader Hiroshi Iwata.

Following his disappointing finish, Schauffele was eager to figure out what went wrong.

“It's going to have to be something,” Schauffele said when asked what he needed to work on . “I can't expect to win hitting the way I did the last 12 holes, so I'll have to go and find something on the range here.
