Cantlay is PGA Tour player of the year


Patrick Cantlay was voted PGA Tour player of the year on the strength of his four victories, including a one-shot advantage at East Lake that made him the FedEx Cup champion.

Tuesday’s announceme­nt was another big step for Cantlay, a 29-year-old California­n who went from being the No. 1 amateur in the world to being unable to play for some three years because of a careerthre­atening back injury.

Now he has the Jack Nicklaus Award after a big finish to his best season. Cantlay won four times this season, capped off by the FedEx Cup. No one else won more than twice.
