Earlier, Theegala told Sports Illustrated about Zhang, “I half-jokingly asked her [to team up] before she even turned pro. Playing chess out here.” He thinks the LPGA amateur is “such a beast” of a player.

“It’s so impressive how she shuts out all the noise and just plays her game. She goes about her business. She’s a straight baller. She seems like such a hard worker, too,” he observed.

Rose Zhang was a college-level champion at Stanford, and won several NCAA titles to overtake golf legend Tiger Woods at that level. The Ivy League student turned professional earlier this year and a few days later won the Mizuho Americas Open. Since then she has gone from strength to strength.
