A legendary athlete named Ichiro Suzuki once said, “I had a dream, and I made that dream come true.” The same could be said for Lincoln high junior, Chris Khan, who recently had the chance of a lifetime.

Khan recently had the opportunity to play alongside pro golfer and former number 1 player in the world, Vijay Singh, at the famous Pebble Beach Golf Course. Khan was joined by two golfers from St. Mary’s high school in Stockton. The three students competed in the 2018 PURE Insurance Championship. Khan had to complete a long application process of two essays and an interview in order to be accepted for this once in a lifetime opportunity.

When asked how his experience was Khan said, “I didn’t do my very best on the course but I still learned some great life lessons and I had a lot of fun.”

Playing at Pebble Beach is something that not very many people can experience in their lifetime. Khan said that his experience “put everything into a new perspective.”

As one of the best golfers in our district, this won’t be Khan’s last time playing at Pebble Beach. Expect him to be playing there as a pro on the golf tour in the upcoming years.
