Rookie Patrick Cantlay wins Colombia Championship
Rookie Patrick Cantlay fired a 5-under 66 Sunday to win the Colombia Championship at Country Club de Bogota by four strokes.
Cantlay finished with a tournament-record total of 18-under, bettering the old mark set by Steven Pate in 2010 by seven strokes. In addition he becomes the second-youngest winner in Web.com Tour history at 20 years 11 months and 15 days, just behind Jason Day.
Third-round co-leader Jim Renner shot a final round 70 to finish runner-up, his best career result. His previous best was a tie for third last year.
Shane Bertsch (70) finished third at 12-under while Texas teen Jordan Spieth (67) and Brazil’s Alexandre Rocha (68) shared fourth place at 11-under.
Spieth has won a total of $50,150 in his last two starts. He needs another $4,649 to achieve Special Temporary Membership for the rest of the year on the Web.com Tour.
Roger Sloan of Merritt, B.C., had three bogeys and two birdies for a final round 72 to leave him tied for 15th, his best result in three career starts on the Web.com Tour.
