Zhang made a brilliant up-and-down par on the 36th hole to force extra holes and then won the match on the 38th hole. By being No. 1 in the WAGR, Zhang was awarded the McCormack Medal for 2020. In 2019, Zhang advanced to the quarterfinals of the U.S. Girls’ Junior and helped the USA win a mixed team gold medal in the Pan American Games in Lima, Peru.
