C.T. Pan makes ace, wins a million Wyndham Reward points for charity


GREENSBORO, N.C. – Drinks are on C.T. Pan, who made the second hole-in-one in as many days at Sedgefield Country Club. So are the Wyndham Rewards points, thanks to a special promotion this week at the Wyndham Championship.

Pan was having a mostly forgettable weekend at the PGA Tour’s regular-season finale until he stepped to the tee at the 174-yard par-3 16th hole and struck a 7-iron that was money.

“It was a perfect line, wind was left to right and it landed just a yard short and dropped in,” he said. “I was pumped. It’s been tough out there for me, so it’s good to finish with a hole-in-one, for sure.”

All aces are great, but some are better than others. Pan’s was the first hole-in-one of the week at the 16th hole, and it earned 1 million Wyndham Rewards points for four different local charities.

“Yeah, it’s awesome,” Pan said. “I want to thank Wyndham Rewards for supporting the charities.”

Pan shot a final-round 1-under 69 and finished in a tie for 69th place.

Si Woo Kim made an ace on Saturday at the third hole, but the Wyndham promotion specified that the hole-in-one had to occur at the 16th to win the prize.
