THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. - For the third time in his career, UCLA alum Patrick Cantlay came back to win on the PGA TOUR. Rallying from four shots back heading into Sunday's final round, Cantlay shot a 7-under 65 to win by one stroke at the ZOZO CHAMPIONSHIP @ SHERWOOD.

Playing just 35 miles away from Westwood at Sherwood Country Club, Cantlay went out in 32 thanks to five birdies and a bogey. A stretch of four birdies in five holes (No. 11, 13-15) gave Cantlay the lead for good, raising it to three shots.

Cantlay's first PGA TOUR win came in 2017 at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open when he came back from a four-shot deficit to win in a playoff. Last June, he rallied from a three-shot deficit to take home the title at the Memorial Tournament.

Cantlay moved up to ninth in the Official World Golf Ranking and is currently in second in the FedExCup standings.
