"It's so new. Yeah, I don't really, I've been pretty good about everything for quite some time," Schauffele said. "I'm 29 and Hero was like the first issue I've ever had.

So this is new to me. That's why I don't know how to answer these questions. I've never had to do this. Hopefully, we don't have these conversations more often."

Hopefully, Schauffele will take care of his back injury before this year's major championships begin.
