Patrick Cantlay claimed his first PGA Tour title at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open after defeating Alex Cejka and Whee Kim on the second hole of the sudden death playoff.

The former Amateur World No.1’s young career has been plagued by a recurring back injury, but now he feels it and ready to strive forwards. “My back feels good. Sitting here right now, I feel great,” Cantlay explained. He added: “I feel really good about my game, and hopefully I can start getting some more wins.”

The 25-year old's impressive 4-under final round 67 secured his spot in the playoff and the stats show that it was his game off the tee that played a big role in securing his first victory. He ranked first in Strokes Gained off the tee using his Titleist 917D2 driver and first in the total Strokes Gained stats for the week.
