The Cantlays are very good at golf.
Patrick Cantlay is the fourth in the world and FedEx Cup champion. His younger brother Jack also proves his worth.
During the first round of a two-stroke, on Monday at the 74th American Amateur Junior course at Bandon Dunes in Oregon, the 18-year-old set a US golf association record for lowest nine-hole score, when he shot an 8-under 28 during Game. Nine inside. The previous record of 29 was set by Eric Bai (2014) and Yuki Moriyama (2018).
Jack, who was four after eight holes, had two eagles on the inside of his nine, which was up front. He made an eagle on each of the 5th, 3rd, and 9th holes. He birded four more holes, numbers 1, 4, 5 and 8.
“I think this is the first time I’ve broken my 30s,” Jack said. “There’s a first time for everything, I guess. It’s just another round of golf, sometimes you play well and sometimes you play poorly.
“Today I played well.”
Jack, a freshman incoming at Long Beach State, earned a 5-under 67 after his first round, one shot behind leaders Erich Fortlage and Harvey Young.
Jack plays his second stroke Tuesday at Bandon Trails, co-host of the stroke play. The top 64 players after the stroke advance to play the match, which begins on Wednesday.
