One for one to begin the season

In 2011, Patrick Cantlay was one of the best stories in the golfing world.  He was named Player of the Year as a freshman at UCLA, he made five of five cuts on the PGA Tour (four top-25s), was low amateur at the U.S. Open, and runner-up at the U.S. Amateur.  Based on his accomplishments as an amateur, he should be thriving on the PGA Tour today.

Cantlay earned Low Amateur honors at the US Open last week
