Recently, three Irvine residents — Alice Ziyi Zhao, Angela (Yilin) Liu, and Leigh Chien — competed in the United States Golf Association’s (USGA) Women’s Championship tournament held at the Chambers Bay Golf Club in Washington state.

The U.S. Women’s Amateur is the third oldest of the USGA championships, dating back to 1895. The event is open to any female amateur who has a USGA Handicap Index not exceeding 5.4. The Women’s Amateur is one of 14 national championships conducted annually by the USGA.

16-year-old Chien — who has already committed to Stanford University for the fall 2024 semester — made it into the quarterfinals of the championship. (Chien has already won five American Junior Golf Association championships and the California State Individual High School Championship.)

On behalf of the entire Irvine community, we here at ICNV want to congratulate all three of these talented young athletes on their successes and look forward to watching them continue to excel.
