Washington junior Cheng-Tsung Pan qualified for the British Open on Friday by tying for second at a 69-player qualifying event at Amata Springs Golf Club in Chonburi, Thailand.
Pan finished 36 holes at 4 under to win one of four qualifying spots into the British Open, which will be July 17-20 at Royal Liverpool in Hoylake, England.
“I’m still in a state of shock but at the same time I’m really happy with how I have played considering how tough this qualifier has been,” Pan said in a UW release. “Playing in The Open Championship has always been a dream of mine.”
Pan, No. 14 in the World Amateur Rankings after a short stint last year as No. 1, was 45th in last year’s U.S. Open.
