Pan closing in on OWGR top 50 after RBC Heritage win

April 22, 2019

After rallying for his maiden PGA Tour victory at the RBC Heritage, C.T. Pan is suddenly on the cusp of the top 50 in the Official World Golf Ranking. Pan erased a two-shot deficit thanks to a final-round 67 at Harbour Town, finishing one shot ahead of 2014 winner Matt Kuchar. It's Pan's first win at age 27, and he moved from 113th to 55th in the world as a result. The victory earned him a spot in next month's PGA Championship as well as next year's Masters. Kuchar went from 16th to 12th after his fourth finish of second or better this season, while Ian Poulter moved up four spots to No.
