Xander had a close relationship with his brother Nico Schauffele.
Both brothers were born to a father, Stefan Schauffele, who was a naturalized German/French immigrant, and a Taiwanese mother, Ping Yi Schauffele, who was raised in Japan.
Talking about his brother, Nico is three years older than Xander and works as a social media manager at Xander Schauffele Foundation.

Nico is currently in a relationship with a beautiful girl name, Diana Varon. The couple often travel together and are seen enjoying each other company.

Xander Schauffele Wife Maya Lowe
Xander Schauffele exchange his vows with Maya Lowe in July 2021 in Las Vegas.
The couple met while studying at different universities and started dating in 2014. Schauffele attended and played golf at San Diego State University, while Maya went to the University of California, San Diego.
She completed her studies in science and public health at the University of California.
Moreover, in 2014, Maya served as a Campus Ambassador for the Peace Corps, an organization that provides assistance to developing countries.
During that same time period, she also worked as an operations intern for Project Concern International, a non-profit organization based in San Diego.
Later, she joined Planned Parenthood in 2015 as a patient flow coordinator.
In addition, she became a “Center Manager Flex” in the same company in December 2017.
The couple tend to keep a low profile, but due to Xander’s success in golf, it is probable that they won’t be able to stay out of the public eye for too long.
