Taipei, June 20 (CNA) Pan Cheng-tsung of Taiwan made the cut at the U.S. Open golf
championship in Chambers Bay, Washington, on Friday with a two-round score of 3-over par that has left him tied for 35th.
Playing in his first tournament as a pro after graduating from the University of Washington earlier this month, the 23-year-old followed up a first-round 1-over par 71 on Thursday with a 72 on Friday that was marred by a triple-bogey on the par-4 483-yard 10th hole.
“I knew that if you want to post a good score on this course, you can’t make a big mistake off the tee,” Pan said, but that’s what happened on the 10th hole.
He sent his tee shot into the tall grass lining the fairway and then after digging his ball out found the sand trap before finishing with two putts. [FULL STORY]
