The native of Johannesburg, South Africa, owns 21 worldwide professional victories, but her first on the LPGA Tour came last July in the AIG Women's British Open at Muirfield. She followed that up with a win at the ShopRite Classic on June 11 in Galloway, N.J. She also owns five victories on the Ladies European Tour, including the 2023 Investec South African Women's Open. It was her fourth victory in the event, but two were not sanctioned by the LET. Twelve of her professional wins have come on the Sunshine Ladies Tour. As an amateur, Buhai represented South Africa in a pair of Women’s World Amateur Team Championships (2004, 2006). This will be her ninth U.S. Women's Open start.
