Cantlay still mulling decision to turn pro

By Helen Ross, PGATOUR.COM

SAN FRANCISCO -- UCLA sophomore Patrick Cantlay says he hasn't made a decision on whether to turn pro.

"I still have a lot to talk over with my family and everything," Cantlay told reporters on Sunday after shooting a final-round 72 at The Olympic Club and finishing the U.S. Open at 11 over.

A year ago at Congressional, Cantley earned low amateur honors. He then went to the Travelers Championship and set the golf world on its ear with a 60 in the second round. Cantlay went on to tie for 24th, one of four top-25 finishes in five PGA TOUR starts in 2011.

Cantlay also tied for 47th earlier this year at the Masters Tournament. In seven TOUR starts over the last two seasons, he has one top-10 and four top-25 finishes.

The decision to turn pro, Cantlay said, is a personal one. "For me it's got to feel right," he explained. "And whenever it feels like it's the right time, then it will be."

Cantlay will be playing at TPC Hartford again next week. He says he's not worried about the transition, should he decide to turn pro before graduating from UCLA.
 
"I don't feel pressure, not really," Cantlay said. "The golf is going to be the same. I don't feel pressure about turning pro,it's just part of life.  It's just going into the next stage, whenever that happens."
