Young Places 2nd at Detroit

Fordham Prep graduate Cameron Young placed second on the PGA Tour’s Rocket Mortgage Classic at Detroit Golf Club.

Young, 25, shot 4-under par over the final six holes to finish at 21 under for the tournament and in a three-way tie with Patrick Cantlay and Taylor Pendrith. Tony Finau won the tournament at 26 under.

It was the second consecutive second-place finish for Young, who was second two weeks earlier at The Open Championship in Scotland.

Young, a graduate of Wake Forest University, has five second-place finishes and seven top-10 finishes. He is the leading candidate for the PGA’s Rookie of the Year and ranks ninth in the FedEx Cup standings.

PGA golfers will be competing Aug. 4-7 in the Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, N.C.
