As a sophomore at Stanford University, Rose Zhang already has a lot to be proud of. And as the world’s top-ranked female amateur golfer, it’s another accomplishment to add to her list.
This summer, Zhang, 20, is set to play at the Kroger Queen City Championship, presented by P&G, at the Kenwood Country Club.
After she recently won the NCAA Individual Golf Championship for the second year in a row, the first female to win back-to-back titles, Zhang announced she will begin her professional playing career. The Kroger Queen City Championship will be one of her first professional appearances.
“I am thrilled to be part of this year’s Kroger Queen City Championship presented by P&G,” Zhang said in a release. “I have heard so many great things from players about the course and the fans, and I can’t wait to see it all for myself.”
While at Stanford, Zhang has had eight victories this season and 12 wins in 20 starts, the most of any Stanford golfer, even beating Tiger Woods.

In April, she won the Augusta National Women’s Amateur Championship in a playoff with Jenny Bae. She will leave the amateur ranks for the professionals having held the top position in the Women’s World Amateur Golf Ranking for a record 141 consecutive weeks.
The championship will run Sept. 6-10. Tickets and hospitality experiences at the Kenwood Country Club are on sale now.
