Zhang has been the undisputed No. 1 player in the Women's World Amateur Golf Ranking since her triumph over Gabriela Ruffels in the 2020 U.S. Women's Amateur. Last summer, Zhang won the U.S. Girls' Junior to become the eighth player to have won both the U.S. Women's Amateur and U.S. Girls' Junior titles, but the first to capture the latter second. She also received the McCormack Medal as the No. 1 player in the WAGR for a second consecutive season. Just completed her freshman season at Stanford University, where she won five tournaments, including the NCAA individual title, and helped the Cardinal to the team title in the NCAA Championships at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Ariz. She also was named the Annika Award winner for 2022 as the nation's top female collegiate golfer, becoming the second consecutive freshman from Stanford (Rachel Heck) to achieve that feat. Zhang went 4-0-1 for the USA in the 2021 Curtis Cup Match at Conwy Golf Club in Wales in the 12.5-7.5 victory to retain the Cup. In 2019, Zhang helped the USA win a mixed team gold medal in the Pan American Games in Lima, Peru. This will be Zhang’s fourth U.S. Women’s Open start.
