Patrick Cantlay had a solid week on the greens at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, posting a highly respectable .602 strokes gained/putting mark for the week and an impressive 2.849 strokes gained on Sunday.
It was a stroke that didn’t register in the stats, however, that led to his victory in Las Vegas—a lengthy putt from well behind the green on the 18th hole at TPC Summerlin—the second time the hole was played in a three-way playoff—that proved the difference-maker as Cantlay rolled the ball over the fringe, onto the green and watched as it nearly went it the hole, settling within tap-in range for a par. That was enough to defeat Alex Cejka and Whee Kim, who made bogey and double bogey, respectfully.
Cantlay’s putter is a Scotty Cameron by Titleist GSS, a blade-style putter made from German stainless steel—a metal known for its excellence and quality. Much like Cantlay’s work on the greens at the Shriners.
