Amateur Patrick Cantlay Shoots 60!

So, riding on the back of his great result at the US open where he won the title of lowest shooting amateur, Patrick Cantlay now shoots the lowest ever score by an amateur in a PGA tour event! The round of 60 came on a day that the 19 year old from the US actually played two rounds, his first and second, on the same day, with the 60 following a 67, at the Travelers Championship.

The feat obviously didn't pass Rory McIlroy, who had stood next to him at the US Open awards ceremony, by, as he tweeted "Patrick Cantlay......... RESPECT!!" shortly afterwards.

So it looks like Patrick Cantlay is another young golfer to look out for. It seems right now that there is some great talent out there that is bringing more welcome attention to the game, away from the whole Tiger Woods scenario, which was at one time threatening to monopolise the game.

I'll be keeping an eye out for Patrick Cantlay in the future - wonder when he will turn professional!
