Patrick Cantlay wins SCGA amateur championship
Patrick Cantlay, the NCAA golfer of the year as a freshman at UCLA, continued his outstanding play this summer, winning the Southern California Golf Assn. amateur championship on Sunday by shooting a final-round five-under 66 to finish at 270 and win by one stroke at San Gabriel Country Club.
Manav Shah, a sophomore at the University of San Diego, finished second.
Cantlay shot a course-record 10-under 60 at the PGA Travelers Championship earlier this summer.
