It’s not easy to win a golf tournament, let alone at the Division I level as a freshman. Rose Zhang begs to differ.
The Stanford freshman has now won the first two starts of her collegiate career, claiming The Molly last week and now the Windy City Collegiate Classic on Tuesday at Westmoreland Country Club in Wilmette, Illinois.
Zhang, the 2020 U.S. Amateur and 2021 U.S. Junior Amateur champion, shot rounds of 72-70-70 to finish at 4 under, one shot clear of Florida junior Jackie Lucena and three of Texas freshman Bohyun Park. The trio were the lone players to finish under par on the individual leaderboard.

On the team leaderboard it was a lot of the same. Stanford took the title as a group as well, finishing at 14 over, eight shots clear of runner-up Virginia. Joining Zhang in the top 10 was Aline Krauter, who finished T-7 at 4 over.
Florida (+26), Texas (+28) and Oregon (+35) round out the top five.
