Stanford’s Rose Zhang captures 10th title of college career at Pac-12 Championship in record-setting fashion

It has been a record-setting Wednesday for Stanford sophomore Rose Zhang.

The top-ranked amateur in the world set the record for most weeks spent as the No. 1 golfer in the World Amateur Golf Ranking at 136 weeks. By day’s end, she added two more accolades to her repertoire.

Zhang won the Pac-12 Championship at Papago Golf Course in Phoenix, shooting 12-under 204 to tie the lowest score in championship history. She previously set the low 36-hole score at 9 under.

She’s the third Stanford golfer to win a conference title in program history. Zhang won by seven shots over Arizona State’s Beth Coulter.

The win also pushes Zhang’s college win total to 10, which breaks a tie with Andrea Lee for most by a female golfer in Stanford history. Zhang has won six times in eight starts this season, her other finishes being a fifth and T-12.

Tiger Woods, Maverick McNealy and Patrick Rodgers all won 11 times for the Cardinal.


Our third conference champion in school history! Congrats, Rose!!!#GoStanford

Earlier this month, Zhang won the biggest title of her career thus far, capturing the Augusta National Women’s Amateur.

As a team, Stanford finished third at 7 under, one shot behind Oregon and nine behind champion USC. Arizona was fourth at 1 over and host Arizona State was fifth at 7 over. It’s USC’s ninth conference title.

Zhang is the defending NCAA individual champion, and Stanford is the defending team champ. Heading into regionals, the Cardinal remain one of the favorites to win at Grayhawk next month.
