Patrick had a decorated amateur career, ranking amateur number 1 for a record 54 weeks and finishing runner up at the US Amateur in 2011. However, he suffered a back injury in 2013 whilst warming up for an event and that would see him only play 6 events between 2014-2017. That period was further

It's to Patrick's credit that he came back in 2017, making 14 appearances without missing a single cut. He also ended the year with a win at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. He's since gone on to win twice more on the PGA Tour and is a fixture inside the world's top 20.

Be careful when backing against Patrick in matchbets. Over the past four years, he only missed 5 cuts in his 74 starts between 2017 and 2020.

Joint leader at the BMW Championship after 3 rounds, Patrick shot a final round 66 to force a playoff with Bryson DeChambeau.  Patrick put his tee shot in the water on the 17th but make a great bogey.  He would then go on to birdie the last.  A birdie at the sixth playoff hole won it for him.  An exceptional performance, recorded the highest SG: Putting figures ever recorded (since 2003).

June 2021
Began the final round of the Memorial tied for the lead with Collin Morikawa. Shot 71 to tie Morikawa after 72 holes and then defeated him in playoff.

February 2021
Two shots back at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, Patrick fired a 68 to slip from 2nd to 3rd.  An acceptable performace.

January 2021 
Began the final round of the American Express 4 shots behind Si Woo Kim. Shot 61 to lose out on a play off by one shot. Kim had to birdie 16 and 17 to beat him. It was the best round of the day by 3 shots and holed a long birdie putt on 18 to give himself a chance.

October 2020 
Patrick trailed by three shots going into the final round at the Zozo Championship. Shot a final round 65 which included nine birdies to win by a shot. Did well to win but was helped by poor final rounds from Justin Thomas and Jon Rahm.

October 2020 
Held a share of the 54 hole lead for the first time in his career at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. Missed a 5ft par putt on the first hole which set the tone for the rest of the round and he slumped to a 73, the worst score of anyone in the top 30.

Held the joint 36 hole lead and was two shots behind with a round to go at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. Shot a 68 but lost out in a playoff to Kevin Na.

August 2019 
Was a distant 2nd to Justin Thomas with 18 holes to play at the BMW Championship. Did well to shoot a 65 but was a long way off and lost out by three.

Patrick was four shots behind Martin Kaymer at The Memorial. An excellent final round 64 was enough to see him win by 2 shots.

Major and WGC Analysis

Patrick is a likely Major winner in future. He has a 3rd place finish at the 2019 US PGA and this may prove to be the event that he is most likely to prosper in. In 2020, his best major finish was 17th at The Masters.

Only played one WGC in 2020, finishing 35th. He has top 10's at the WGC - HSBC Champions, WGC - Mexico Championship and WGC - Bridgestone Invitational in the last few years and should be a matter of time before he claims one.

Playoff Record

3-2. Patrick's playoff successes came at the 2021 BMW Championship, 2017 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and The Memorial where he defeated Collin Morikawa.

Q. How much does that win at ZOZO propel your confidence coming into this?
PATRICK CANTLAY: It's always nice to win. I think any time you win, it does wonders for your confidence. I felt like I had been close for a while. Some good stuff was coming, and it did at ZOZO, and hopefully there's still more good to come.
