Xander Schauffele (opens in new tab) has become one of golf's most consistent performers, with multiple PGA Tour titles and an Olympic gold medal under his belt. As well as these victories, he has achieved several top-10 finishes in Major championships and made appearances in President and Ryder Cup teams.
One person who has been with him throughout his professional career is his wife, Maya Lowe. We find out a little bit more about her below.
Schauffele and Lowe have been together since 2014 after the pair met while at university. Interestingly, both went to different colleges, Schauffele attending and playing golf at San Diego State University, whilst Lowe went to the University of California, San Diego.
Schauffele graduated with a degree in Social Sciences while Lowe graduated from college with a degree in science and public health. She also has a Masters degree in healthcare administration.
Her LinkedIn says she works as “Center Manager Flex” for Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest. She has held the position, which is based in San Diego, California, since December 2017. It has been reported that she has been working for the company since 2015.
Lowe is fluent in Japanese and has done quite a bit of volunteer work in her life. In 2014, she was a Campus Ambassador for the Peace Corps. During that same period, Lowe volunteered as an operations intern for Project Concern International, a non-profit organisation based in San Diego.
She also volunteered at Planned Parenthood before getting full-time employment with the company.
In 2021, the couple got married in Las Vegas, a week after the US Open. Playing the Scottish Open in his first start as a married man, Shauffele humorously said: “No offense to anyone here, but I would not choose a place that rains so much to take my honeymoon.
“It's been a long time coming. … We’ve been together for quite some time and decided to make it public. We're very happy.”
Schauffele posted a photo from his wedding on his Instagram account with the wedding party including the couple’s French bulldog, who was wearing a tuxedo.
Matt studied Sports Journalism at Southampton Solent University, graduating in 2019. Now a freelance writer for Golf Monthly and the PGA, he covers all aspects of the game, from Tour news to equipment testing and buyers’ guides. Taking up the game at the age of six, Matt currently holds a handicap of 3 and despite not having a hole in one…yet, he has had two albatrosses. His favourite player is Rory McIlroy, despite nearly being struck by his second shot at the 17th during the 2015 BMW PGA Championship.
