Pan’s Wife Re­tired from Cad­dy­ing Af­ter Wyn­d­ham Cham­pi­onship

HK Golfer - - ASIA FOCUS -

Tai­wanese PGA TOUR Pro C.T. Pan needed a re­place­ment cad­die at the Wyn­d­ham Cham­pi­onship in late Au­gust. So, he turned to the per­son he could most trust: His wife, Michelle.

What­ever she did, it helped: Pan fin­ished tied for sec­ond be­hind win­ner Brandt Snedeker.

Pan tied for the lead at 20-un­der par on the 72nd hole, and just an er­rant tee shot re­sulted in a dou­ble-bo­gey six and fi­nal­round 65. That was Pan’s best fin­ish of the 2017-18 sea­son.

The last player on TOUR to win with wife as the cad­die was Pa­trick Reed at the 2013 Wyn­d­ham Cham­pi­onship.

How­ever, it turns out this pair­ing - as cad­die and player, not as man and wife - is short­lived. “Been asked by many ques­tions about my cad­die (wife) last week. Would like to answer them all in this post. 1: She is re­tired from cad­dy­ing and ended her ca­reer on a high note. 2: I have a caddy for the next cou­ple events,” tweeted Pan af­ter the Wyn­d­ham Cham­pi­onship.
