- His feat of becoming the first PGA TOUR rookie to win the TOUR Championship in 2017, and how it was set up by an incredible final round at the BMW Championship.
- Recalling his runner-up finishes at The 2018 Open and 2019 Masters.
- Recounting his final round 62 to win the Sentry Tournament of Champions in Hawaii.
- Schauffele’s feeling of disappointment in being left off of the 2018 Ryder Cup team.
