Early life and amateur career
Cantlay has two brothers, Nick and Jack Cantlay, a sister, Caroline Cantlay, and was born in Long Beach, California to Steve Cantlay and Colleen Naylan Cantlay. He went to Servite High School, where his senior year saw him win the California State High School Championship.
Cantlay won four tournaments as a freshman at UCLA and received the Haskins Award as the most outstanding college golfer in 2011. He was also named the Division I Jack Nicklaus National Player of the Year by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA). In addition to being named Pac-10 Player of the Year and Freshman of the Year, Cantlay received the Phil Mickelson Award as the GCAA National Freshman of the Year. He also received the Mark H. McCormack Medal as the world’s top amateur at the end of the 2011 season. This honour earned him a spot in the 2012 Open Championship.
Cantlay achieved sectional qualifying to enter the 2011 U.S. Open. Along with Brad Benjamin and Russell Henley, he was one of three amateur golfers who made the cut. He qualified as a low amateur thanks to rounds of 70 and 72 over the weekend.  He tied for 21st place after shooting the best back nine 30 of the competition. Cantlay recorded a course record 60 the next week, on June 24, at the Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut, to record the lowest round by an amateur on the PGA Tour.  He tied for 20th place the following week in the AT&T National, finishing as the low amateur.
Cantlay won the Southern California Amateur the following week at the San Gabriel Country Club. He also finished in a tie for ninth place at the 2011 RBC Canadian Open as the low amateur.
Cantlay was defeated by Ethan Tracy in the Western Amateur final at the North Shore Country Club in Glenview, Illinois on August 6. On August 28, he lost in the final of the US Amateur against Kelly Kraft at Erin Hills in Erin, Wisconsin. Making the finals earned him a seat in the 2012 Masters Tournament, where he finished in a tie for 47th place, the lowest amateur finish.
He rose to the top of the international amateur golf rankings on March 23, 2011. Prior to Jon Rahm surpassing him in 2016, he held the records for 54 straight weeks at number one and 55 total weeks at the top.
Cantlay had a 2-1-1 record while playing for the United States at the 2011 Walker Cup.
Patrick Cantlay dropped out of college in June 2012 to pursue a career as a professional. As a result of this choice, he was unable to compete in the 2012 Open Championship. As a result, his first professional match was at the 2012 Travellers Championship, when he failed to make the cut.
Patrick had previously signed a contract with Mark Steinberg and Excel Sports Management Group (Tiger Woods’ management).
The athlete excelled as a professional athlete (besides his best amateur player title). He consequently moved up to position 415 in the Official World Golf Ranking. At AT&T National, Patrick was able to secure his first professional salary.
In 2013, Patrick won his first professional match at the Web.com Tour’s Colombia Championship. He reached the finals and placed 11th, earning a 2014 PGA Tour card. The player only participated in 5 matches as a result of missing the majority of games due to a back injury.
It’s interesting to note that Patrick saw numerous doctors while experiencing back issues, and each one offered a different treatment for the condition.Even though the tragedy made Cantlay consider going back to school, he ultimately made the decision to persevere.
In a recent interview, he said:
“I had pondered returning to school, but I wasn’t done with golf.” I can’t see myself doing anything halfway. If I go back to school, I want to go back and only do school, get all A’s, and use my time developing business connections so I can figure out what I’m going to do after school. So I didn’t think I could take physical therapy and get the rest I needed to compete if I was still in school. Yes, there are 24 hours in a day, and yes, you can multitask. But not to accomplish everything perfectly.”
His caddie, Chris Roth, was murdered in a hit-and-run accident in Newport Beach, California, in February 2016, while Roth and Cantlay were out on the town. Cantlay’s high school teammate Roth had caddied for him in both his amateur and professional careers.
Cantlay recovered his PGA Tour card with a runner-up result at the Valspar Championship in his second start of the 2017 season.
 He finished third at the Heritage, tenth at the Northern Trust, thirteenth at the Dell Technologies Championship, and ninth at the BMW Championship, qualifying for the Tour Championship.
On November 5, 2017, Cantlay made his second start of the 2018 season and on the second extra hole of a three-man playoff at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, he captured his first PGA Tour victory. His second season start guaranteed his Tour card for the next year for the second year in a row.
Cantlay barely missed defending his championship at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open on November 4, 2018. He trailed victor Bryson DeChambeau by one shot in the final standings.
Cantlay nearly missed winning the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in October 2019. On the second playoff hole, he was defeated by Kevin Na. Cantlay represented the United States at the 2019 Presidents Cup, which was held at the Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Australia in December. The United States squad won 16-14. Cantlay won his Sunday singles match against Joaqun Niemann, going 3-2-0.
Cantlay won the Zozo Championship at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, California, in October 2020. The event is generally held in Japan, but due to the COVID-19 epidemic, it will be held in California in 2020.
Cantlay made the halfway cut at The American Express in January 2021, then shot twenty birdies over the weekend, including an 11-under-par final round 61 to achieve a 22-under total and the clubhouse lead. Kim Si-woo eventually defeated him with a single stroke.  Cantlay won the Memorial Tournament for the second time in June. In a playoff, he defeated Collin Morikawa. Cantlay defeated Bryson DeChambeau in a sudden-death playoff on the sixth hole of the BMW Championship on August 29, 2021.
