Patrick Cantlay, the world’s No. 1 amateur and SCGA Amateur Champion, has received a sponsor exemption into the 2012 Northern Trust Open. The event is scheduled for Feb. 16-19 at Riviera CC in Pacific Palisades.
Riviera is located just six miles from the UCLA campus, where Cantlay is a sophomore, and will host the upcoming NCAA Championship. Cantlay played five PGA Tour events in 2011, making the cut in all five and finishing in the top-25 in all but one. His best finish was a tie for ninth at the Canadian Open. He also finished 21st at the U.S. Open. His 60 in the second round of the Travelers Championship was the PGA Tour’s low round in 2011.
