Golfworld: 'C.T. Pan's Hard Road From Taiwan to the PGA Tour'

LEARN THE INSPIRING GOLF STORY of C.T. Pan, the two-time first-team All-American from University of Washington who won the 2019 RBC Heritage, his first victory on the PGA Tour.

Carrying Pan's byline, the story is written as a first-person account. It begins in Taiwan:
We didn't have much when I was a kid. I was the youngest of six, and we had cousins living with us, too. There was so little room that I shared a bed with my parents and other siblings until I was a teenager. The only way I could play golf was by sneaking on our local course. I'd wake up before 4 a.m. and get in nine before the clubhouse opened, and another nine after it closed. I didn't know until later that the golf shop knew—they always know, right?—but looked the other way. Especially when they found out I was good.
Pan is 27 and has been on tour for three seasons. In 25 starts during the 2018-19 season, he captured that first win and two top-ten finishes.
