Zhang will make her debut on the Women’s Professional Golf (LPGA) Tour at the Mizuho Americas Open, which begins June 1.
Zhang, who is of Chinese descent, was ranked No. 1 in the world as an amateur and attended Stanford University in the United States, where she played in 20 tournaments and won 12 times. This is the most wins in Stanford University history.
Zhang was particularly dominant in the 2022-23 season, winning eight of her 10 tournaments.

She also holds the record for the most consecutive weeks ranked No. 1 in amateur women’s golf since September 2020, with 141. The previous record was 130 weeks by Lydia Ko (New Zealand) and 135 weeks by Riona Maguire (Ireland).
Starting with the Mizuho Americas Open, Zhang will also play as an invitee at this year’s U.S. Open and AIG Women’s Open.
