At the 2024 US Open, Patrick Cantlay has put up a noteworthy performance until now. In the three rounds played at Pinehurst No. 2, Cantlay is currently on T2 with a score of 4-under. The World No. 9 is tied for second place with the likes of Rory McIlroy and Matthieu Pavon.

Cantlay seems eager to win his first Major on Sunday. In the press conference after Round 3 of the 2024 US Open, Patrick Cantlay was asked how it would feel to potentially win his first Major on Sunday.

The American golfer said it would be "great", adding:

"It'd be great. Pinehurst seems like a great golf course for me. You hit a lot of fairways and play smart around here. And you can move up the leaderboard with pars and just a few birdies. I played really smart today. And was happy with how I grinded it out. And tomorrow I'm sure we'll be a grind as well and I look forward to the challenge." (3:17-339)
