Qiang Zhang, 20, had a successful rookie season on the LPGA Tour with four top-10 finishes, three of which came at majors. She also won the Mizzou American Open in her first LPGA Tour appearance.

Chang is currently a sophomore at Stanford University and has missed the last two quarters of school due to her golf activities. She will return to Stanford in January to finish her degree.

“I’m excited to get back to school and finish my degree,” Chang said.” It’s been a great year on the LPGA Tour, but I’m also committed to my studies.

Chang will likely only play in one or two tournaments between January and March when classes are in session. She knows the balance will be a challenge, but she has a plan of attack that will hopefully allow her to succeed.

I think the biggest takeaway is that it’s okay to say no,” Chang said.” Yes, you have responsibilities and obligations to the media and sponsors, but at the end of the day, you have to learn how to take care of yourself, your job, your craft, and that is to play your best on the golf course.

Chang is one of a growing number of young golfers who are balancing their careers with their studies. She hopes her story will inspire other young athletes to pursue their dreams on and off the course.
