20 Year-Old Cruises to Victory by a Decisive 4-stroke Margin
TYSONS CORNER, Va., March 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MicroStrategy® Incorporated (Nasdaq: MSTR), a leading worldwide provider of business intelligence (BI) and mobile software, is proud to announce that MicroStrategy Global Brand Ambassador Patrick Cantlay won his first tournament as a professional yesterday. Cantlay won the Colombia Championship, held annually at Country Club de Bogota in Bogota, Colombia, becoming the second-youngest winner in Web.com Tour history.
The 20 year-old Cantlay sealed his first professional victory with a tournament record total score of 18-under par 266, carding four birdies and an eagle in the final round to top his nearest competitor by 4 strokes. With four rounds in the 60s, highlighted by a 6-under par round of 65 on Saturday and a 5-under par 66 on Sunday, Cantlay turned in his best weekend as a professional. Less than 10 months after turning professional, Cantlay has his first win in only his 17th start as a professional.
With this victory, Cantlay jumps to #1 on the Web.com Tour money list for 2013 and is in great position for the rest of the year. He continued his hot start to the 2013 season after claiming his first ever Top 10 finish as a professional on the PGA Tour just a few weeks ago at the AT&T National Pro-Am at the famed Pebble Beach course. Cantlay continues to build on the legacy he established by completing one of the most successful amateur careers in history last year.
This week, Cantlay will be playing in the PGA Tour's Puerto Rico Open, held at the Trump International Golf Course in Puerto Rico.
"We are excited and proud to be part of the team for Patrick's first professional win," said Jonathan F. Klein, President of MicroStrategy. "Patrick has been a great Global Brand Ambassador for MicroStrategy and we're confident that this will be the first of many victories for Patrick. We look forward to Patrick's continued success on Tour."
