First- and second-round co-leader and World No. 39 Patrick Cantlay backed up with an even-par 34-37=71 in the final round of the Genesis Open, dropping two spots into a two-way T4 on 9-under 275, three shy of overnight leader and champion Bubba Watson, who shot 69. UPDATE: Cantlay bumps five places to a career-high 34th in OWGR.
The UCLA product began the day in solo 2nd, one back of playing competitor Watson. After going out in 1-under (two birdies, one bogey), he led four players by one at the break, but came home in 1-over, overshadowing a 2-putt birdie-4 at 11 with back-to-back bogey-5s at 12 and 13. The 25-year-old was vying for a second TOUR title this season in six starts (P1, Shriners), second in 47 career events, but settles for a fourth top 25 this season and second top 10 with rounds of 66-69-69-71. The Long Beach, California, native hit seven (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, No. 1 for the week in GIR at 72.22 percent (52/72). He posted 1.818 putts per GIR and -0.702 SG: Putting, needing 29 total putts. This was Florida resident's first cash in three tries at the Genesis. Feb 18 - 7:53 PM

Overnight co-leader and World No. 39 Patrick Cantlay navigated a 2-under-par 36-33=69 in the third round of the Genesis Open to post 9-under 204, dipping one place to solo 2nd, one swing shy of 54-hole leader and two-time past champion Bubba Watson, who shot 65.

The UCLA product is going for his second TOUR win in 47 career events (39 pro), second this season in six starts. He won the 2018 Shriners four starts ago, where he came from four back with 4-under 67, eventually winning in a 3-man playoff. After kicking off in 66-69, the 25-year-old co-led after each of the first two rounds. He hit eight (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, No. 1 in GIR at 75.93 percent (41/54). The Long Beach, California, native squared two bogey-5s at holes 2 and 8, outpaced by four circles at 1, 10, 11 and 18 (from 10'8"), capping with a walk-off 3 from 54'3". He posted 1.600 putts per GIR and 3.288 SG: Putting with 26 total putts. Cantlay will play out of the final threesome on Sunday with Watson and Cameron Smith.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, first-round co-leader and World No. 39 Patrick Cantlay crafted a 2-under-par 33-36=69 in the second round of the Genesis Open to post 7-under 135, good for the early 36-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With second-round play completed on Saturday morning, Cantlay is T1 with Graeme McDowell.

The UCLA product landed eight (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, currently No. 1 in GIR at a cumulative 86.11 percent (31/36). He squared three bogeys at 15 (3-putt from 63'11"), 5 (3-putt from 32'6") and 9, offset by five circles at 11, 3 and 6-8. The 25-year-old's split included two 15-footers at 3 and 8, recording 1.800 putts per GIR and -0.920 SG: Putting, needing 31 total putts. At the time he signed his card, the Long Beach, California, native posted 0.857 SG: Off-the-Tee, 2.390 SG: Approach-the-Green and 3.602 SG: Tee-to-Green. If the 36-hole lead holds up, it'll be his second in 47 career events (39 pro). While still an amateur, Cantlay led the 2011 Travelers at the midpoint (67-60), before 72-70 for T24.
Feb 16 - 3:34 PM

Returning from a four-year hiatus from Riviera Country Club, Patrick Cantlay returned with a bang, styling a 5-under-par 33-33=66 during round one to give him a share of the lead alongside big-hitting Tony Finau.

Cantlay could do no wrong from tee-to-green today. He split 10 (of 14) fairways on his way toward 16 greens in regulation. That smooth striking allowed him a trio of stress-free birdies from inside four feet. The UCLA product also added some bonus birdies with the flat stick from outside 10 feet. Most notable of the bunch came at the par-4 seventh when he snaked one in from 31'4". Despite his steady results since returning from injury, this will actually go in the record books as his first career first-round lead or co-lead. In fact, it's the first time he's been inside the top 5 after round one on the PGA TOUR. Cantlay may not know what to do with this early-week success but he's in a great position to go hunting for his second career PGA TOUR win.

Patrick Cantlay fired out of a cannon with a birdie-ace-birdie start, ultimately carding a 5-under-par 34-32=66 during round one of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, placing him just two strokes shy of the early leaders.

Cantlay opened his week on the 10th tee at Monterey Peninsula Country Club's Shore Course. With a pair of par 5s in his opening three holes, a fast start was likely but the hole-in-one at the par-3 11th was certainly a nice bonus. Cantlay aced that 176-yard hole with an 8-iron, his first hole-in-one on the PGA TOUR. After the hot start, Cantlay cruised his way toward three more birdies while swallowing a pair of bogeys. The UCLA product missed just one (of 13) fairways on the round. The California native is making his third appearance at this event and this matches his previous low round (66, R1/2013). He went on to finish T9 after that strong start in 2013.
Feb 8 - 5:51 PM

Making his tournament debut, World No. 38 Patrick Cantlay navigated a 3-under-par 36-34=70 in the second round of the Sentry Tournament of Champions for a 36-hole total of 6-under 140, down one place to T8 with play still in progress.

The 25-year-old squared the par-4 first for a second day in a row, but then played his final 17 holes in blemish-free 4-under. He circled a two-putt birdie at the par-5 fifth, and after nine consecutive pars, birdied 15 (from 13'7"), 17 and 18, also a two-putt variety. The UCLA product, who resides in Jupiter, Florida, mustered seven (of 15) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, gaining 1.500 approaching-the-green but losing 1.162 around-the-green. He posted 1.846 putts per GIR and 0.358 SG: Putting, needing 30 total putts.

Patrick Cantlay bounced back from an early hiccup to style a 3-under-par 34-36=70 during the opening round of the Sentry Tournament of Champions.

Cantlay found the dreaded native area on his opening hole to swallow a bogey. He would drop another shot at the par-4 fourth hole, but that was the end of that. From there, he rattled off a three-hole birdie train that was highlighted by a 20-footer at the par-4 seventh. Cantlay would save par from 13'2" at the par-3 eighth hole before tapping in a birdie at the par-5 ninth. The UCLA product snoozed home with eight straight pars before circling a birdie at the closing par 5. Cantlay has rattled off five top 10s in 15 starts since returning from a long injury layoff. Gamers should continue to invest on a weekly basis.

Patrick Cantlay preps for his course debut at Kapalua Resort's Plantation Course as he readies for this week's Sentry Tournament of Champions.

Five years ago it would have shocked no one if you told them Cantlay would be making the winners-only trip to Maui for the Tournament of Champions. It would have been very surprising if you said the same thing at this time last year. Most people had written Cantlay off and there was no word on his return to action until mid-January. He would later make his long-awaited return at the 2017 Pebble Beach Pro-Am in early February. The rest is history as Cantlay would then post a perfect 15-for-15 record during the 2017 calendar year, with 10 of those doubling as top 25s. The UCLA standout was one of the best stories in golf last year and gamers should continue to ride the train straight to the ATM.

Making his tournament debut, World No. 67 Patrick Cantlay, a pre-tourney 20/1 outright, fashioned a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to match Alex Cejka and Whee Kim on 9-under 275, and then won with an up-and-down par on the second playing of the par-4 18th in sudden death, using the flat stick two times from 68'11" away for the victory. UPDATE: Cantlay jumps 25 spots to a career-high 42nd in OWGR.

The 25-year-old claims his breakthrough PGA TOUR title in his 43rd career start (35 pro), supplanting a previous-best 2nd at the 2017 Valspar. Overall, it's his seventh career top-10 finish and first of the season in his second start, arriving off T15 at last week's HSBC in his WGC debut. After opening in 67-71-70, the California native began T4, four back of 54-hole co-leaders Beau Hossler and J.J. Spaun. Playing out of the third-to-last threesome, he hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 1.539 strokes off-the-tee but losing 1.500 around-the-green. The UCLA product's first lead of the week came after his fourth birdie of the day at 11 and added three more in succession at 12-14. He saved par at 15 from 13'2" before a bogey-bogey finish in freshening winds dropped him back into extra time, his first career playoff appearance.

Patrick Cantlay rebounded from a slow start to piece together a 4-under-par 36-31=67 during round one of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Cantlay opened his week two bogeys in his opening three holes. He followed that up by missing three birdie chances from inside nine feet. Things were looking down at that point but he rallied to circle six birdies in an eight-hole stretch, starting at the par-5 ninth. Highlights on his streak included a 20'10" hole out from the fringe for birdie at the par-5 13th and a 13-footer for birdie at the par-3 14th. Cantlay is arriving fresh from Shanghai this week and is also making his tournament debut. Despite all that, he's positioned himself nicely after day one, currently in a share of seventh place on the leaderboard.

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.
