Patrick Cantlay makes his first return visit to Colonial Country Club since a mid-tournament WD in 2013, hoping for much better results at this week's Fort Worth Invitational.
Cantlay was 8-over thru 25 holes before he backed out of the 2013 Fort Worth Invite due to a back injury. He's since pushed those back concerns to the side, since returning to action at the start of 2017. More recently, he arrives with a T7 at the RBC Heritage, a T7 at the Zurich Classic (team event), and a T23 at THE PLAYERS. He's been T21 or better after 11 of his last 12 rounds played, hanging out near the top of leaderboards on a consistent basis. Ranked inside the top 40 in strokes gained off-the-tee, approach, and around-the-green, Cantlay should continue to contend on a weekly basis. Other than the lack of success at Colonial, everything points to another strong week for the UCLA product. May 22 - 11:45 AM

Overnight co-leader and World No. 34 Patrick Cantlay carded a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in the second round of THE PLAYERS to reach 10-under 134, currently sharing the top spot on the leaderboard with Charl Schwartzel. UPDATE: With R2 completed, Cantlay is T2, five short of leader Webb Simpson.

The UCLA product was T5 thru 36 holes on debut last year, eventually finishing T22 (69-70-72-77). He arrived this week off back-to-back 7th-place finishes at the RBC Heritage and the Zurich teamed with Patrick Reed. The 26-year-old landed nine (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 0.870 strokes approaching and 2.474 around-the-green. He squared a lone bogey-6 at hole 9 (second shot in the water), outpaced by five birdies at 1-3, 11 and 12, highlighted by a 15-footer from just off the green at 1 and a 27-footer at 3. The Jupiter, Florida, resident recorded a commercial 1.800 putts per GIR and -1.106 SG: Putting with 29 total putts.

Patrick Cantlay connected on eight birdies during round one of THE PLAYERS Championship, good for a 6-under-par 34-32=66, placing him in a share of the clubhouse lead alongside five others.

Cantlay started his day on the back nine with a trio of birdies at 10, 11, and 12. He dropped a shot at 14 before adding circles at the par-5 16th and famous par-3 17th. Cantlay got the putter working on his way into the clubhouse, draining a 13'9" birdie at the par-3 third and then dropping home a 21'2" birdie bomb at the par-4 seventh. Short game was the key to success today as Cantlay gained more than 2.5 strokes around-the-green and another 2.69 strokes putting. Cantlay also got off to a fast start during his debut last year, firing a 3-under 69 to sit in a share of seventh place. This will be Cantlay's second career first-round lead/co-lead with the previous one coming at this year's Genesis Open (finished T4).

In alternate-shot action at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, World No. 34 Patrick Cantlay and World No. 11 Patrick Reed fashioned a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in the final round to conclude on 17-under 271, up 12 places to T7, five shy of champions Billy Horschel and Scott Piercy. UPDATE: 19 (of 80 teams) were returning from last year, including Cantlay/Reed, and they were the second-best finishers of those 19 teams to Tony Finau/Daniel Summerhays (solo 6th).

After opening in 65-71-66, the duo began T19 on 14-under, two short of the overnight top 10. They squared three bogey-5s at holes 8 (missed par-saver from 4'10"), 10 and 13, outpaced by four birdies at 2, 6, 7 and 11, adding eagle-2 at 16 from 6'10" after Reed drove the green. Their birdie split was highlighted by a 25-footer at 6 by Reed. This returning team from last year was the only one (of 80) this week where both players had already won this season. Interestingly, they finished T14 last year with the exact same score of 17-under.

World No. 35 Patrick Cantlay authored a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in the final round of the RBC Heritage to conclude on 9-under 275, up 13 places to T7 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Cantlay finished T7, three adrift of a two-man playoff involving Si Woo Kim and eventual champ Satoshi Kodaira.

This was the 26-year-old's second RBC after a T3 last year. He improves to 9-for-10 on the season with six top 25s and three top 10s, highlighted by his maiden win (in a playoff) at the Shriners back in November. After opening in 67-72-68, the UCLA product began T20 on 6-under, two short of the overnight top 10. He found nine (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 2.253 strokes off-the-tee and 3.519 tee-to-green, currently No. 1 in SGTTG with a cumulative 11.220. The California native squared two bogeys at holes 4 (3-putt from 64'11") and 13, outpaced by eagle-2 at 9 (from 9'6") after driving the green, two conventional birdies at 6, and 10 (17'3"), and a hole-out birdie-3 at 16 from 74'6" away. He registered 1.846 putts per GIR and -0.092 SG: Putting with 29 total putts, currently 68th (of 77) in SGP for the week at -2.890.

Arriving fresh off a rare missed cut, Patrick Cantlay cruised to a 4-under-par 33-34=67 during round one of the RBC Heritage.

Cantlay snapped his lengthy cuts-made streak last week at Augusta National but he's not letting that linger. Today he split 10 (of 14) fairways which allowed him to go after pins. That's exactly what he did, gaining 4.011 strokes on approach en route to 16 greens in regulation (currently first in the field). In fact, he gave himself birdie looks from inside 15 feet on eight of his first nine holes. The ULCA alum probably feels like a left a few strokes out there today but if he continues this level of ball-striking then he'll be right in the mix come Sunday afternoon.

Patrick Cantlay snapped a cuts-made streak of 22 events when he missed the cut at this week's Masters Tournament, his first missed cut since his return from injury.

Cantlay has been as steady as they come since returning from physical and emotional hurdles back at the start of 2017. It wasn't meant to be this week as he returned to Augusta National for the first time since earning low amateur honors back in 2012. On the week he hit more fairways than the field and also hit more greens than the field but his flat stick failed to deliver. After 36 holes, Cantlay had racked up five three-putts, leading to scores of 75-76=151 (+7), missing the cut by two strokes.

Patrick Cantlay heads to the Masters at Augusta National Golf Club looking to keep his cuts-made streak intact.

Cantlay has made the cut in each of his eight events this season, including a pair of top-10 finishes with a victory at the Shriners Hospital for Children Open. Playing for a green jacket is a whole different animal, however. This will be his second career appearances at Augustam and first since the 2012 season when he turned in a respectable 47th-place showing. The way he is rolling along, he'll be a tempting DFS play, but his struggles with the putter could hold him back from making great strides at the first major of the season.
Apr 3 - 10:38 PM

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.

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.
Feb 17 - 7:29 PM

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.
Feb 15 - 8:32 PM

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.

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.
