The American added at the very end of the season and won two tournaments in a row: the BMW Championship and the Tour Championship. A week ago, he was stronger in the playoffs of American Bryson Dechambeau, while Deschambeau had several puts to win, but the balls regularly rolled past.
Patrick himself showed incredible play on the green and surpassed all his opponents in putting by 14.5 strokes. On the other hand, at the Atlanta Final, on the other hand, Cantlay’s putting didn’t work as well, but he did an excellent up-training.
Patrick Cantlay capped a dream season on Tuesday with the 2021 PGA Tour Player of the Year award. Cantlay got the nod from his peers — the award is voted on by other PGA Tour players — over Jon Rahm after winning four times, including narrowly over Rahm at the season-ending Tour Championship which delivered him the FedEx Cup.
Jack Nicklaus has great respect for the best golfer of the season, according to whom Patrick reminds him of himself at the beginning of his career. Nicklaus is known to have won 18 Majors, while Cantlay has none yet. Moreover, in nine tournaments in a row, he could not even get into the top ten. The American’s closest goal is the Ryder Cup.
