Patrick Cantlay heeds Jack Nicklaus' advice and wins by two

Patrick Cantlay carded a final-round 64 to win the Memorial Tournament. Jack Nicklaus was watching for something intently in Patrick Cantlay’s final round at the Memorial Tournament. It wasn’t the crisp irons under pressure. It wasn’t his turn, or club head speed, face angle, or anything else Trackman might measure. It was a smile. “He did it at 15!,” Nicklaus interjected in Cantlay’s winner's conference when it was suggested Cantlay hadn’t smiled until he put out on 18 to all but secure his second PGA TOUR victory and move to 6th in the FedExCup standings. The reason Nicklaus was looking for it was some advice he had passed on to Cantlay on Friday at Muirfield Village. From the time he was awarded the Jack Nicklaus Award as the best collegiate player in America in 2011 the two have had a kinship. Nicklaus goes as far as to say Cantlay, and all of the other previous winners of the award, are “in many ways my children.” But on Friday, having seen Cantlay not turn his stellar talent into more wins since he won in November 2017 at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas, Nicklaus seized an opportunity.
