Yang is set to make her 17th start in the U.S. Women's Open, where she owns two runner-up finishes (2012, 2015) and seven top-10s. Half of her eight professional victories have come on the LPGA Tour, including three titles at the Honda LPGA Thailand (2015, 2017, 2019). Yang also has 13 other top-10s in major championships, including a tie for fourth in April at the Chevron Championship. In 2016, Yang represented Korea in the International Crown. Although she was born in Korea, Yang moved to the Gold Coast of Australia at age 15 to elevate her budding golf career. When she won the 2006 ANZ Ladies Masters as an amateur at age 16, 192 days, she became the youngest winner of an Ladies European Tour event, a feat since surpassed by current LPGA Tour star Atthaya Thitikul.
