The Masters 2012: Patrick Cantlay Earns Low Amateur Honors With Wild Final Round

Patrick Cantlay had one of the craziest final rounds in Masters history. That final score of 72 does no justice to what exactly the UCLA golfer accomplished to hold off Hideki Matsuyama for top amateur honors at the 2012 Masters.

  • Cantlay birdied the par-5 2nd. Okay, nothing too amazing.
  • Then he bogeyed the par-3 4th. Even par.
  • Then a birdie on the par-3 6th. Not bad.
  • Then a hole-out eagle on the par-4 7th. WHOA!
  • Then a bogey on the par-4 9th and par -4 11th to give it back.
  • Then a birdie on the par-3 12th.
  • Then a quadruple bogey on the par-5 13th. YIKES!
  • Then a double bogey on the par-4 14th. Holy...
  • Then an eagle on the par-5 15th. WHOAAAA!
  • Then two birdies on 16 and 17 to get back to 72. Wow.

So, to recap: Cantlay made 2 eagles, five birdies, three bogeys, one double bogey, one quadruple bogey in his final round. And you thought golf was boring.

Cantlay will join the winner of the 2012 Masters in Butler Cabin for the award ceremony to receive the Silver Cup, the award given to the top amateur performer on the weekend.
