Cantlay Beats DeChambeau In Six-Hole Playoff

Jonathan Grant | August 30th, 2021

Patrick Cantlay might have won the BMW Championship at Caves Valley on Sunday, but he sure did know he was in a fight with Bryson DeChambeau. First up, he had to sink three clutch putts consecutively in regulation just to set up a playoff with the hulking golf star. He made par on 16, a bogey on 17, and then drained a birdie on 18 just to get there. Once in it, he had to sink two putts in the playoff just to continue on.

It eventually would pay off for him after six attempts in the playoff, as he outlasted his much longer-hitting rival to take the win and seal up the #1 seed for the FedexCup Finals in Atlanta. He’ll have a two-shot edge to begin as he chases a $15 million victory there. And he’ll do it with a new nickname: ‘Patty Ice.’ As for DeChambeau, who nearly broke 60 earlier in the week, he had to settle for second and will now have more work to do if he wants to claim the big check. Both players will be on the Ryder Cup team for the USA, as captain Jim Furyk selected Cantlay after his captivating performance.
