Freshman Patrick Cantlay has been voted as the consensus number one golfer in all of NCAA Division I men's golf. He becomes the first UCLA freshman to earn such honors and the first UCLA golfer since Kevin Chappell in 2008 to be voted number one.

Patrick leads the Bruins in scoring average at 70.2 and has averaged an astounding 69.0 in his last five tournaments. Cantlay has also won three of those five tournaments (Gifford Collegiate, Amer Ani Invitational and USC Invitational) and finished in the top five in all of those tournaments. In addition, he leads the team with six top-10 finishes, 13 rounds under par, 11 rounds under 70 and has shot an amazing twenty-six under par for the year.

"It is great to see hard work pay off for Pat," Head Coach Derek Freeman says. "He has played very well over a long period of time on many different golf courses. The best part about him is that he realizes there is still room for improvement which allows him to achieve every day."
