Final Shot with Pan Cheng-tsung

The 24-year-old Taiwanese ace, who had a stellar amateur career before turning pro and winning in just his second Tour start, talks to Alex Jenkins about his favourite courses, who would be in his dream fourball and his most memorable on-course experience

Pan Cheng-tsung

What's been your best ever round?

The only time I shot 63, which is my lowest round, was when I was 14-years-old. It was off the white tees but even so, everything went well that day. It was at Nan Fong Golf Club in the southern part of Taiwan. I had nine birdies!

What’s your favourite course in Asia?

It would have to be Amata Spring Country Club near Bangkok. I played the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship there [in 2012] and finished second and then last year I made it to the Open Championship after going through the qualifying tournament there. Although I have had success I have to say the course is awesome. It’s a beautiful place and when the wind gets up it can be really challenging.

And your favourite course in the world?

The Olympic Club in San Francisco. I played the 2007 US Amateur there. I really like the design. It’s a really strategic test and it makes you think on every shot.
