KAPALUA, Hawaii (AP) - Xander Schauffele broke the Plantation course record with a 12-under 61 on Sunday, and he needed every shot to beat Gary Woodland by one shot and win the Sentry Tournament of Champions.

Schauffele started the final round five shots out of the lead and opened with a bogey. He ran off three straight birdies. He chipped in for eagle at the turn. He holed a 107-yard wedge for eagle at No. 12. Tied with Woodland over the closing holes, Schauffele finished birdie-birdie to break the record previously held by four players.

Woodland, who holed a 12-foot birdie putt at No. 17 to tie for the lead, had a chance to force a playoff but missed a 10-foot birdie putt on the last hole. He closed with a 68.
