The 20-year-old became the second player from the People's Republic of China to win a major championship, following the recently retired Shanshan Feng, when she captured the KPMG Women's PGA Championship by one stroke over 2021 U.S. Women's Open champion Yuka Saso at Baltusrol Golf Club on June 25. This came on the heels of her first LPGA Tour win by one stroke over over Georgia Hall at the DIO Implant LA Open in April. That victory earned the second-year LPGA Tour player an exemption into the U.S. Women's Open. Previously, Yin had won her first three starts on the China LPGA Tour in 2020, a record for that circuit. Yin earned her LPGA Tour card by tying for third at the Q-Series in the fall of 2021. Her best finish in 2022 on the LPGA Tour was a tie for fourth at the Dana Open.
