    American golfer Xander Schauffele has hit out at British Open organisers for an unfair testing system

    American golfer Xander Schauffele has hit out at British Open organisers for an unfair testing system


    Schauffele's driver was one of 30 selected for random testing at the start of the week by the R&A and found to be non-conforming, forcing the world number 11 to use a different club in his opening round.

    After making some adjustments, the former PGA Tour rookie of the year bounced back in a flawless 65 to reach halfway on three-under par, five shots off the lead shared by Shane Lowry and JB Holmes.

    Schauffele says he'd happily give up his driver if it is not conforming but there's still 130 other players in the field that potentially have a non-conforming driver as well.
