Amid the hustle, the 20-year-old has shared what qualifying for the Solheim Cup would mean to her. However, her focus is certainly not on the qualification itself!

The Stanford star has been one of the most prominent American golfers ever since her amateur days. Her amateur career is quite decorated, and currently, she is on a mission to make her pro career just as decorated. In her pre-round conference, during the $6.5 million major, she was asked about how much it would mean to her if she could qualify for the upcoming Solheim Cup.

Answering the question, the golfer said that “it would be a dream” to qualify for the USA team and to be able to play in the prestigious event. She shared how there is nothing better than representing your country with some stunning teammates and celebrating the pride of the American flag.

As the golfer answered the question, Zhang added that she is not fazed by the Rolex rankings and doesn’t really think about them a lot. “I haven’t looked at it at all, actually. I feel like if my game is there, by by-product I’ll be able to qualify,” said Zhang about her being able to qualify for the Solheim Cup.

The one-time LPGA winner is all for the team format. In her conference, while sharing her stance about the prestigious team tournament and qualifying criteria, Zhang also spoke fondly of the team format.
