A 19-Year-Old Amateur is Leading the Travelers Championship

During the summer between my freshman and sophomore years of college, here are the things I remember me doing, in no particular order:

-- Messing up the middle of my sister's wedding because the planner never really explained to us what was going on and I mistakingly took the cue for the unity candle to mean exit, stage left, and did so before my sister, the bride, had to correct me in front of an entire church full of family and friends.

-- Shaving.

-- Perfecting the art of hanging around your hometown for no particular reason with your friends, who also have no reason to be there.

-- Drinking.

Not really the same can be said for Patrick Cantlay, who at age 19, has spent his summer making professional golf his new hobby. Last week at Congressional, Cantlay cruised to a tie for 21st and low amateur honors, and decided to follow that up with two rounds at the Travelers Championship that have him leading by four shots. Oh, and the second round was a 10-under 60. No big deal.

The UCLA product is obviously extremely talented, but is this just a guy catching fire for a couple of weeks or more reason to really believe that youth is now taking over the men's side of things in golf? We've seen what Manassero has done over in Europe, but we haven't really seen an American take charge like this until now.

Can Cantlay win? Probably not. He's 19 and will now be sleeping on the lead with names like Webb Simpson, D.J. Trahan and Bubba Watson chasing him, but if he did, it really would put the youth movement in America on the map.

Oh, and if you have any shaving questions Patrick, just fire 'em my way.
