Fordham Prep Grad Cameron Young Runner-up Again, in PGA Tourney


Cameron Young, a graduate of Fordham Prep in the Bronx, tied for second in the PGA Tour’s Rocket Mortgage Classic at Detroit Golf Club July 28-31.

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 was the tournament winner at 26 under.

It was the second consecutive second-place finish for Young, who was runner-up two weeks earlier at the British Open.
