PGA Tour Champion Patrick Cantlay was born in Long Beach, California, on March 17, 1992. Currently ranking as one of the top golfers in the world, Cantlay has seen great highs and lows over the course of his golf career but has repeatedly been recognized for his perseverance and determination.

Cantlay attended UCLA where he won the Haskins Award in 2011 for being the most outstanding college golfer. That same year he successfully made it through sectional qualifying to earn a spot in the U.S. Open where he went on to finish as low amateur. This run of success saw him rank as the number one golfer in the World Amateur Golf Ranking for 54 weeks straight, setting a new record at the time.

After suffering a back injury after just one year on the PGA Tour, Cantlay was told he would never play golf again and he took medical leave for the next few seasons. By the start of 2017, his ranking on Tour dropped to number 1,880 due to his absence.

Against all odds, through his determination and grit, Cantlay climbed to the top 10 of the Official World Golf Rankings for the first time in 2019. That same year, he was also invited to represent the United States in Melbourne, Australia, on the Presidents Cup Team.

Patrick has won several times on the PGA Tour, including the Shriners Hospital for Children Open (2017), the Zozo Championship (2020), The Memorial Tournament (2019, 2021), the BMW Championship (2021) and the Tour Championship (2021). In 2021, he also won the FedEx Cup and was voted the PGA Tour Player of the Year.

Cantlay currently lives in Jupiter, Florida. In his spare time, he enjoys reading and staying active with friends and family. The Patrick Cantlay Foundation is his charitable foundation, which partners with initiatives that support junior golf and programs that assist and advocate on behalf of first-responders.
