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. Apr 16 - 5:16 PM
