C.T Pan celebrates after winning the RBC Heritage at Harbour Town

Hilton Head, South Carolina - C.T Pan fired a final round 67 at the RBC

Heritage Classic as nearly every challenger struggled in the windy

conditions on Easter Sunday. 54 hole leader and World No.1 Dustin

Johnson had a disastrous final round finishing with a 6 over par 77 for

the day (and 4 under par total) plummeting all the way into a tie for 28th.


Pan was on the fence about whether to compete at Harbour Town, since

back home in Houston his first AJGA event was being held, but his wife

insisted that he go play. After finishing at 12 under par, and claiming his

first PGA Tour victory, Pan accepted his new plaid tartan jacket and 1.2

million in earnings, realizing a dream and a promise he had made to his

father who has since passed away. "I can remember all of the late nights

watching the Masters or watching the PGA Tour events, watching Tiger Woods

winning,"Pan said. And my Dad would tell me, hey, I want you one day to

do that for me. And Dad, finally we've done it."


Matt Kuchar finished a shot behind at 11 under par after making birdie at the

13th, 15th and 18th holes. Shane Lowry, Patrick Cantlay and Scott Piercy were

two shots back tied for 3rd at 10 under par.
