The impressive field consists of 14 of the nation's top teams, including the host and defending tournament champions, No. 6 Georgia Tech. The Huskies will also be going up against Golfweek/Sagarin Performance Index rated No. 4 Auburn, No. 8 Florida State, No. 11 Virginia, No. 14 Kent State, No. 16 Clemson, No. 25 Duke, No. 27 UCLA and No. 29 Iowa, No. 36 Texas A&M, No. 41 Wake Forest, No. 54 Southern California and East Tennessee State.

Pan and teammate Chris Williams, who is ranked 6th in the WAGR, will look to ride the wave of outstanding play and help lead the Huskies to victory at the Golf Club of Georgia.
