Amateur Patrick Cantlay makes five pars, shoots even par

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Amateur Patrick Cantlay is an extremely talented 20-year-old golfer. He finished T-21 last year at the U.S. Open. He made the cut this year at the Masters, and a lot of people think he has the opportunity to be the "next big thing" in American golf. 

But his scorecard on Sunday at the Masters was anything but regular. He shot an even-par round 72, which is perfectly fine for someone still in college, but most of the times, a round like that means you make a lot of pars.

For Cantlay, he made five. All day long.

Yes, just look at this scorecard. Five pars, four birdies, three bogeys, two eagles, one double-bogey and one quadruple-bogey. Yesh.

The good news? He's going to get a lot of crystal for that round, which will look good in a dorm room. The bad news? Probably not a good thing when you make two eagles and three birdies just to post even par.
