After authoring one of the most prolific careers in amateur golf, Patrick Cantlay is now writing the comeback story of his generation.

While in his rookie season on the Web.com Tour, Patrick suffered a stress fracture in his lumbar spine in May of 2013. Already a winner on the Web.com Tour and ranking first on the tour’s money list, Patrick was forced to the sidelines to recover. Without any action in competition, his position on the money list began to slip, eventually falling out of the ever-important Top-25 to secure his PGA TOUR card. Despite the injury, Patrick elected to return late that season to protect his chances at earning a PGA TOUR card. Patrick went on to display some of the most courageous play in recent history, and at the 2013 Hotel Fitness Championship, finished second to secure his privileges on the PGA TOUR.

With further complications stemming from the stress fracture, Patrick was once again forced to take an extended period of time to recover, seeing only limited play in 2014. In addition to coping with a lengthy recovery from the injury, Patrick was faced with personal tragedy in 2016.

Thanks to incredible dedication and focus, Patrick returned to action on the PGA TOUR in 2017. At the 2017 Valspar Championship, just his second PGA TOUR event in nearly three years, Patrick finished runner-up. His high-quality play proved to be consistent, qualifying for the PGA TOUR’s TOUR Championship after just 12 starts. Patrick’s return was validated with his maiden PGA TOUR victory, coming by way of a playoff win at the 2017 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. After many said he would never be able to play golf again, Patrick has demonstrated the promise he created as one of the most successful amateur golfers in history.

In addition to Patrick’s success as a professional, he completed an historic year on the PGA TOUR as an amateur in 2011. Patrick made the cut in all five of his starts during the summer of 2011, including a top-10 at the RBC Canadian Open and four top-25 finishes. Patrick also holds the distinction of finishing as the low amateur at the 2012 Masters and the 2011 U.S. Open. Patrick also holds the record for the lowest round ever for an amateur on the PGA TOUR, shooting a 60 at the 2011 Travelers Championship.

Formerly ranked as the world’s No. 1 amateur for a record 55 weeks, Patrick received numerous accolades, including: the Haskins Award, honoring the most outstanding college golfer; the Jack Nicklaus Award, given to the NCAA Division-I Player of the Year; the Mark H McCormack Medal, awarded to the season’s top-ranked amateur; and the Ben Hogan Award, given to the player with the most outstanding collegiate and amateur record.
