Brandon Wu was introduced to golf at the age of 6, when his dad got bitten by the golf bug. He told China Daily: “Like all kids, I played lots of different sports, did swimming, baseball, tennis… did them all. I played a lot of golf at a young age though just because it was fun to have my dad take me out to the course, driving around on the cart and hitting balls. It was good father-son bonding for sure.”
He recalls shooting a 56 in his first nine-hole tournament at the age of 8. He said: “I thought I did OK, but dad thought I could have done better and he was right. I started trying to shoot better scores after that. I’m glad my parents pushed me to play golf. They saw the big picture on what golf can help bring, whether that was the opportunity to go to Stanford or being a professional golfer. They set the course for me.”
