HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) — Pan Cheng-tsung (潘政琮) took advantage of Dustin
Johnson’s back-nine struggles to win the RBC Heritage for his first PGA TOUR victory on April 21, local time.
The 27-year-old Pan, from Taiwan, closed with a 4-under 67 on Sunday at Harbour Town Golf Links for a one-stroke victory over Matt Kuchar. Pan finished at 12-under 272.
“It’s still really hard for me to believe,” he said. “I’m processing. My phone has been vibrating the last 10 minutes. I’m so happy I finally got it done.”
Johnson, the third-round leader in his home-state event, had a 77 to tie for 28th at 4 under. He played a five-hole stretch in 7 over, making bogeys on Nos. 11-13 and double bogeys on Nos. 14-15. [FULL STORY]
