Patrick Cantlay Torches the Travelers Championship Open Thread

After finishing as the top amateur at the U.S. Open, UCLA golf sensation Patrick Cantlay decided not to rest on his laurels.  Playing in the Travelers Championship in Connecticut, Cantlay leads the field after the second round.  Most impressive though is how he did it: by firing a course record 10 under par score of 60.  Just on a side note, here's a few names that have played the same course: Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, and Greg Norman.  Not bad Patrick, not bad.

NBC Sports summarized the scorching sizzling round:

Cantlay, who finished as the low amateur at last week’s U.S. Open, caught lightning in a bottle on Friday afternoon en route to an incredible advantage headed into the weekend at TPC River Highlands. He made two birdies in his first three holes in his opening nine of the second round before turning in 30 with four birdies in his last five holes. On the second nine, Cantlay made eagle three at the par-5 13th hole (his second of the day) before making three birdies in his last five holes – including a tap-in birdie to finish his round – that gave him his advantage.

Coming up the last hole, Cantlay was aware of what he could achieve.

"I knew where I was and I knew I needed to make eagle on 18 for 59. But you know, it’s tough to hole it from 152," he said.

The third round at the TPC River Highlands is currently underway.  If you want to track it, you can follow the live leaderboard here, or you can catch up by watching the interview with Cantlay here, or watch the highlights from Cantlay's sizzling Round 2 here.
