Denver, CO - GOLFTEC, the world leader in golf improvement, congratulates Rose Zhang on her dramatic win at the Augusta National Women's Amateur over the weekend. Zhang opened with record-setting rounds of 66 in round one, followed by 65 in round two. Zhang’s 76 in the final round at famed Augusta National Golf Club gave her a final total of 9-under 207, tying her with Georgia’s Jenny Bae. Zhang defeated Bae on the second hole of the sudden-death playoff by making a par on the par-4, 10th hole, earning her the championship.
This victory adds to her already impressive list of achievements, including winning the 2022 NCAA Division I Individual and Team Championship, the 2021 U.S. Girls’ Junior, and the 2020 U.S. Women’s Amateur.
