Dou Zecheng Biography – Dou Zecheng Wiki
Dou Zecheng is a Chinese professional golfer who plays on the PGA Tour. He previously played on the Korn Ferry Tour and the PGA Tour China. Zecheng started playing golf at the age of 6 while living in Canada with his parents and older sister. He turned professional in 2014.
In 2016, he had four wins on the PGA Tour China Series. He won the Henan Open, United Investment Real Estate Open, Nanjing Open and the Yulongwan Yunnan Open.
Zecheng has three victories on the Korn Ferry Tour: the 2017 Digital Ally Open, the 2019 Bahamas Great Exuma Classic at Sandals Emerald Bay and the 2022 Ascendant presented by Blue.
Zecheng made his debut on the PGA Tour in 2018. He earned his PGA Tour card for the 2022-23 season after finishing in the top 50 from the 2022 Korn Ferry Tour.
“When I played on the PGA Tour for the first time (in 2018), I was young and I came to learn. It didn’t matter if I lost my membership and had to go back to the Korn Ferry Tour,” he told China Daily.
“But this season, I have felt more pressure as I have been a professional golfer for over eight years. Technically I feel I have improved, however, I also have anxieties when I don’t play well. My wife gives me a lot of support, and I remain optimistic. The golf career is long, and I do not look at just one season. You need to stick to your own plan, everyone’s time to shine is different.”
Zecheng is banking on a ‘home’ game at the 2023 AT&T Byron Nelson to turn his fortunes around after enduring a challenging spell on the PGA Tour.
“TPC Craig Ranch is my home course and I usually practice here. It is only five or six minutes from home. This course plays relatively easy and I am quite familiar with it,” said Dou.
He is also counting on a recent switch to the AimPoint method for reading greens in his hopes of shooting lower and consistent scores as the PGA Tour heads toward the business end of the season. The FedExCup Playoffs start in August, with only the top 70 players qualifying.
“My putting has improved a lot as I am now using AimPoint. I know some guys are fine to use their eyes to read the greens, and may not need to use their feet (which is part AimPoint’s technique). But it works for me. My putting seems to be more accurate,” said Dou.
He is one of two Chinese mainland golfers on the PGA Tour along with Carl Yuan Yechun.
