Taipei, Aug. 1 (CNA) Taiwanese golfer Pan Cheng-tsung (潘政琮) won his country's first Olympic medal in the sport on Sunday, bagging bronze after a seven-way playoff.

Pan, who is participating in his second Summer Games, finished in a shared third place, after four days in the men's competition on Sunday morning, and went on to win the playoff for the bronze medal on the fourth hole.

To date, Taiwan has bagged a total of eight medals in Tokyo -- two golds, two silvers and four bronzes -- topping its previous best of five medals in 2000 and 2004.
