Taiwan golfer CT Pan has discovered an ingenious approach across the “no-family” rule at spectator-free Tokyo 2020 — he employs his spouse as his caddie. Pan, who has loved one win on the US PGA Tour in 2019, stated Wednesday his spouse Michelle Lin could possibly be key to a podium end when the lads’s occasion begins at Kasumigaseki Country Club on Thursday. “Since this is the biggest event in my life, and for the whole world, I needed to bring out my best. She’s my best caddie,” stated the 29-year-old Pan, who tied 30th in Rio de Janeiro 5 years in the past.
“She wanted to be with me. Most importantly, we’ve got a great record together,” stated Pan, who completed joint runner-up on the 2018 Wyndham Championship with Michelle on the bag.
“She knows me very well, she’s caddied before and knows my bad habits. She can say the right thing at the right time. She’ll help more on the mental side which I think will make me happy.”
The pair are staying with the Taiwan staff within the athletes’ Village and had been a part of the celebrations Tuesday when Kuo Hsing-chun gained the island’s first gold in ladies’s 59kg weightlifting.
“It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience to stay with the best athletes in the world,” stated Michelle.
“It’s an honour and I thank C.T. for giving me this chance. The Olympics is very special and to be able to see my husband competing at this level, it makes me very proud of him,” added Michelle, casting a husband a loving look.
He laughed: “Do you want me to propose again?”
