Patrick Cantlay was one of five early-week withdraws from this week's CJ CUP at Nine Bridges field, delaying the start of his sophomore campaign for at least one more week.
In limited starts, Cantlay cruised to a 13-for-13 record in his rookie season, making it all the way to East Lake in the process. It was a long time coming after missing more than two years worth of action due to injuries and tragedy. There was no reason given for this pre-tournament WD, but a long flight wrecking havoc on the back can't be ruled out. For the time being, Cantlay is still listed on the WGC-HSBC Champions player profile page, suggesting he could still make his season debut next week in China. Joining Cantlay as early-week WDs in Korea are Jason Dufner, Russell Knox, Mackenzie Hughes, and Ernie Els. Gamers should remove them all from their weekly lineups. Oct 16 - 10:31 AM

Making his tournament debut, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 88 Patrick Cantlay carved out a 1-under-par 34-36=70 in the final round of the BMW Championship to conclude on 12-under 272, down four spots to T9 but climbs 12 places from 41st in the FedExCup standings to 29th. UPDATE: Two rookies, of six that were at the BMW, advanced to the TOUR Championship, Cantlay and Xander Schauffele, who finished T20 and moved to 26th in the FEC standings.

In just his 12th start of the season, which began on a Major Medical Extension, the 25-year-old stamped his ticket to the TOUR Championship, opening the Playoffs in T10-T13 and another top-10 finish. It's his seventh top 25 of the season and fourth top 10, highlighted by a career-best 2nd at the Valspar. After kicking off in 67-65-70, the UCLA product began T5 on 11-under, eight shy of 54-hole leader Marc Leishman. He found eight (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, eking out a 0.185 SG: Approach-the-Green and losing 0.305 tee-to-green. The Jupiter, Florida, resident squared a lone bogey-5 at 16, slightly outpaced by two birdie-4s at 8 and 18, walking off with a 10-footer that secured his place at East Lake. He recorded a pedestrian 1.900 putts per GIR and -0.570 SG: Putting, needing 28 total putts.

Making his tournament debut, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 88 Patrick Cantlay eked out a 1-under-par 35-35=70 in the third round of the BMW Championship to post 11-under 202, down one place to T5, eight shy of 54-hole leader Marc Leishman.

The 25-year-old found nine (of 14) fairways and mustered nine greens in regulation, gaining 0.835 strokes off-the-tee but losing 1.245 approaching-the-green and 1.011 around-the-green. He squared two bogeys at Nos. 4 and 14, ate double bogey-5 at 11 (tee ball in the water), slightly outpaced by five circles at 2, 10, 12, 13 and 18, four conventional and a 15-footer from just off the green at the par-4 12th. The UCLA product's split included two conversions from between eight and 14 feet, recording 1.667 putts per GIR and 0.842 SG: Putting with 25 total putts. He's projected at 25th in the FedExCup standings, up 16 spots.

Patrick Cantlay swallowed his first bogey of the week but still managed a 6-under-par 30-35=65 during round two of the BMW Championship to climb up to 10-under 132 after 36 holes.

The PGA TOUR rookie split just three (of 14) fairways and sits at 68th in fairways hit on the week (10). He recovered nicely to pepper 14 greens in regulation, thanks to a strokes gained approach of 1.919 in the positive. His flat stick chipped in with a 12'10" birdie splash at the third and a 20'1" birdie bomb at the closing, par-5 18th. Cantlay started the week outside the top-30 bubble in the FedExCup race (41st) but he's currently projected up 20 spots as he sits in solo fourth on the live leaderboard. That number will fluctuate quite a bit today and for the remainder of the week. Regardless of whether he qualifies for the TOUR Championship or not, it's been a great season for the phenom as he's made it this far in the Playoffs despite playing just his 12th event of the year.

Making his tournament debut, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 99 Patrick Cantlay crafted a bogey-free 3-under-par 35-33=68 on Day 3 of the Dell Technologies Championship to reach 8-under 205, up one spot to T9, four back of 54-hole co-leaders Justin Thomas and Marc Leishman.

The 25-year-old hit eight (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing 0.348 strokes off-the-tee and 0.118 around-the-green, but gaining 1.035 approaching-the-green. He carded three birdies at Nos. 7, 10 and 15, two from between 20 and 32 feet, posting 1.769 putts per GIR and 2.355 SG: Putting, needing 28 total putts. The UCLA product is chasing his first TOUR title in his 39th career start (31 pro).
Sep 3 - 7:19 PM

Making his tournament debut, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 99 Patrick Cantlay crafted a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in the second round of the Dell Technologies Championship to reach 5-under 137, up three spots to T9 with play still in progress.

The 25-year-old found nine (of 14) fairways and pelted 16 greens in regulation, posting 2.867 SG: Approach-the-Green and 2.955 SG: Tee-to-Green. He squared two bogey-5s at Nos. 9 and 12 (3-putt from 67'9"), outpaced by five circles at 2, 4, 8, 16 and 18, missing eagle at the last from 5'2". The UCLA product's split included four from inside of nine feet with a long of 38'9" at the par-3 16th. He posted a pedestrian 1.813 putts per GIR and -0.839 SG: Putting, needing 32 total putts.

Making his FedExCup Playoffs debut, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 120 Patrick Cantlay tacked on an even-par 35-35=70 in the final round of THE NORTHERN TRUST to finish up on 4-under 276, good for a seven-way T10 and top-rookie honors of 11 in the field. UPDATE: Cantlay leaps 21 spots to a career-high 99th in OWGR.

After kicking off in 67-70-69, the 25-year-old began T10 on 4-under, eight back of 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth. He found nine (of 14) fairways and pelted 16 greens in regulation, No. 1 for the week in GIR at 87.50 percent (63/72). The California native posted 1.192 SG: Off-the-Tee and 2.250 SG: Tee-to-Green, though -0.593 SG: Putting. He traded a lone birdie-3 at 12 (from 23'4") with a walk-off bogey-5 (3-putt from 53'1"), posting a dismal 2.000 putts per GIR and needing 34 total putts. The UCLA product is a perfect 10-for-10 on the season with five top 25s and three top 10s, and jumps 28 places to 50th in the FEC standings.
Aug 27 - 8:03 PM

Patrick Cantlay cruised to a bogey-free, 3-under-par 33-34=67 during round one of THE NORTHERN TRUST, positioning himself inside the top 10 on the early leaderboard.

Cantlay provided steady striking today, splitting 11 (of 14) fairways and landing 14 greens in regulation. That was good for +1.005 strokes gained off-the-tee and +2.202 strokes approaching-the-green, at the time he signed his card. The lone weakness was the flat stick, as he converted on just 3-of-9 birdie chances from 15'2" and in. There was nothing glaring in this putting performance, it was just a matter of missing a lot of mid-range putts. If Cantlay can start draining some of the mid-range attempts, he should stick around near the top of the leaderboard all week.
Aug 24 - 1:00 PM

PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 128 Patrick Cantlay readies for his PGA Championship debut and checks in 74th in the FedExCup standings.

This is the 25-year-old's fourth overall major appearance, first as a pro. He made the cut in his previous three, including a best of T21 at the 2011 U.S. Open in his major debut. The UCLA product is a perfect 8-for-8 on the season with four top 25s and two top 10s, both doubling as top 3s, highlighted by a career-best solo 2nd at the Valspar back in March (sponsor invite). After beginning 2016-17 on a Major Medical Extension out of the reshuffle category -- that dated back to 2013-14 -- the runner-up finish quickly satisfied those terms in just his second start of the season. For unknown reasons, he's played sparingly in the last 12 weeks, making just two starts since mid-May, most recently a T48 at the Canadian Open (68-72-69-71).
Aug 9 - 4:03 PM

Patrick Cantlay returns from a six-week absence as he readies for this week's RBC Canadian Open, getting his first look at Glen Abbey Golf Club.

Cantlay has shown nothing but consistency since returning from a long-time injury. He is 7-for-7 this year with nothing outside the top 50. From a round-by-round perspective, he's been T55 or better after every round he's played this year. There is no news on the long layoff, but if he's fully fit then Cantlay looks like a top-tier option in all fantasy formats. Gamers should certainly weigh the risk of rust after not competing for six weeks.

Making his tourney debut, World No. 131 and PGA TOUR rookie Patrick Cantlay eked out an even-par 36-36=72 on Day 3 of THE PLAYERS to post 5-under 211, down two spots to T7, two back of 54-hole clubhouse leader Si Woo Kim and four back of the leader on the course J.B. Holmes, who's playing the 18th.

After opening in 69-70, the 25-year-old began in a five-way T5 on 5-under, four in arrears of 36-hole co-leaders Louis Oosthuizen and Kyle Stanley. He piped 12 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 3.107 strokes tee-to-green. The Jupiter, Florida, resident circled four birdies at Nos. 5, 10 (from 24'3"), 13 and 16, but cancelled them with bogey-4s at 3 and 17 (3-putt from 17'6") and double bogey-6 at 14. He lost 1.600 strokes around-the-green and 1.038 on-the-green, posting 1.800 putts per GIR and 32 putts total.

Patrick Cantlay eased his way around TPC Sawgrass with a 2-under-par 35-35=70 during round two of THE PLAYERS, reaching 5-under 139 at halftime, sitting four strokes off the pace.

Cantlay put on a ball-striking clinic on day one (17 GIR) but slowed that pace a bit today, finding just 13 greens in regulation in R2. The UCLA standout flipped the script entirely on the putting greens today, gaining 2.539 strokes putting in R2 after losing 0.022 in R1. On the down side, most of those putts were par-savers, saving par three times from the 6-to-13 foot range while also saving one from 24'2" at the sixth hole. Cantlay has showcased all facets of the game this week, but he'll need to combine his R1 and R2 efforts if he wants to keep climbing up the leaderboard over the weekend.
May 12 - 6:34 PM

Patrick Cantlay cruised to a 3-under-par 35-34=69 during round one of THE PLAYERS, staking out an early spot inside the top 10.

Arriving with two podium finishes in his last three individual stroke-play events, his form is certainly peaking. He continued to strike it well today, pelting his first 17 greens in regulation before missing the final green, leading to his lone blemish of the round. The flat stick never really warmed up, as his lone conversion from outside eight feet came at the par-4 sixth when he splashed home from 17'1". TPC Sawgrass isn't completely new to Cantlay who has seen it in junior competition, but this is definitely a stellar PLAYERS debut.
May 11 - 12:44 PM

Patrick Cantlay and playing partner Patrick Reed combined to shoot 4-under-par 32-36=68 during round one at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, staking out a spot just two strokes off the early co-leaders.

This duo striped 11 (of 14) fairways today while playing in alternate shot format. They opened on the back nine and traded just one birdie with one bogey before making the turn. From there, the putters warmed up, sinking a 22'3" birdie at the par-5 second and then stretching it out to 44'4" for another birdie at the par-4 fourth. Reed arrived with a stellar reputation in team competition, but his career record in foursomes is just 1-2-2. Most of his damage has been done in four-ball (4-1-0). Luckily for this squad, four-ball is the format that will be waiting for them on Friday.

PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 214 Patrick Cantlay spun a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in today's final round of the RBC Heritage to wrap his tourney debut on 11-under 273, up 10 places to T3 and good for the 72-hole clubhouse lead with Ollie Schniederjans. UPDATE: With play completed, Cantlay finished in a three-way T3, two back of fellow rookie and first-time champ Wesley Bryan, who shot 67.

After opening in 70-66-70, the 25-year-old began on 7-under (T13), six back of 54-hole leader Jason Dufner. He mustered seven (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, gaining 2.491 strokes tee-to-green and 1.698 on the greens. The UCLA product squared bogey-5s at holes 3 and 8, camouflaged by six birdies at 2, 4, 7, 9, 14 and 18, walking off with a 15'6" birdie-3 and a tidy 1.500 putts per GIR. This was just his fourth start of the season and met the terms of a medical extension out of the reshuffle category with a career-best solo 2nd at the Valspar two starts and five weeks ago. For the week, Cantlay circled 18 birdies versus five bogeys and one double bogey-6 in R3.
