Cantlay in lights

If you watch highlights of Rory McIllroy hositing the U.S. Open trophy this morning, check out the golfer in the background, that’s UCLA freshman Patrick Cantlay. The only golfer among suits on the green. He’s forever in the picture of McIlroy winning his first major. Cantlay earned that spot by winning low amateur at the U.S. Open. He’ll play in the Travelers Championship this week in Connecticut after earning a sponsor’s exemption.

    How he ended at UCLA is interesting. He parents are Trojans. Maybe the grandma had something to do with it. Glad you’re at Westwood.
