Historic achievements from Cantlay and Byrd to be featured in World Golf Hall of Fame
Two of golf’s most thrilling recent moments will be showcased by the World Golf Hall of Fame & Museum. Memorabilia from 19-year-old Patrick Cantlay’s 10-under 60 at the Travelers Championship in June will be displayed, along with items from Jonathan Byrd’s stunning hole-in-one to win the 2010 Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.
Starting Monday, July 11, visitors to the Hall of Fame will be able to view the scorecard, ball and autographed pin flag from Cantlay’s round at the 2011 Travelers Championship, the lowest round by an amateur in PGA TOUR history. Guests can also see Byrd’s ball, 6-iron and the pin flag from the 204-yard 17th hole at TPC Summerlin in Las Vegas, where he became the first player in PGA TOUR history to win a playoff with a hole-in-one.
“Jonathan and Patrick have both made indelible marks on the game with their inspired play and we are excited to feature their achievements in the Hall of Fame,” said Jack Peter, World Golf Hall of Fame Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. “These current-day feats will be an excellent addition to the Hall of Fame experience.”
Cantlay, who made headlines at the 2011 U.S. Open when he turned in the best score for an amateur in 40 years, continued his great play the following week at the Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Conn. Cantlay found himself in the lead after his torrid 60. Despite his success in pro ranks, Cantlay is keeping his amateur status and will remain at UCLA.
Byrd’s hole-in-one came on the fourth hole of a playoff in the October 2010 event. It was so dark that Byrd never saw the ball go in the cup, but the roar of the crowd told him all he needed to know.
“I’m flattered,” said Byrd. “I’m 33 and still in the beginning of my PGA TOUR career in a sense, so for the Hall of Fame to call me for something is special. I was happy to donate my club and ball. I’m grateful and I’m excited to see how they put it together.”
