Kevin Chappell and Patrick Cantlay Low at US Open

June 20, 2011


Travis Mathew team member Kevin Chappell capped off an amazing week at the US Open by firing off a final round 66 to finish T3 and tied for low American of the week with Robert Garrigus.  For Chappell, it was his first career major, and he certainly made the most of it.

UCLA sophomore-to-be and Travis Mathew supporter Patrick Cantlay took Low Amateur honors with an even-par 284. His rounds of 75-67-70-72 bested just-graduated Georgia Bulldog Russell Henley by 4 strokes. Cantlay’s 67 in the second round is one of the lowest scores ever recorded by an amateur in the 111-year history of the U.S. Open. Asked about whether he intended to turn pro in the wake of Friday’s 4-under par performance Cantlay responded, “No, my timeline is after I graduate from UCLA.”

Travis Mathew would like to thank Patrick for choosing to wear TM all week, a wonderful surprise for us.  After you finish your time at UCLA, be sure to get in touch with us!

Both Chappel and Cantlay have earned invites back to the Open in 2012 by their performances, as well as spots in the 2012 Masters tournament at Augusta National Golf Club. The 2012 U.S. Open Golf Tournament will be contested at San Francisco’s Olympic Club, June 14—17, 2012.
