Zhang Shares Unforgettable U.S. Open Experience
14 year old Andy Zhang’s historic U.S. Open appearance ended after two rounds. Beijing born Zhang left the Olympic Club with an unforgettable and exciting experience, Zhang said that what he did is something that he had never done before and it was the greatest experience of his life. Zhang is believed to be the youngest golfer to compete ever in the U.S. Open.
Zhang now based in Florida said that his entering the tournament as an alternate will boost his junior golf career. Zhang agreed with 17 year old Beau Hossler that appearing in their first U. S. Open was a learning experience. Hossler played in the Congressional last year during his first appearance in the U. S. Open and last Friday, Hossler found himself on the top of the leader board en route to a tie in ninth after 36 holes.
Zhang said that he saw a difference between the first day and second day of his play, in the first day he was shaking a lot and even after a few holes he was still nervous. On his second day on the tee he felt a better after he was able to block out the crowds a little bit along with everything else. When asked on his highlights of the week, Zhang chose holing a putt from the fringe at the 18. Zhang said he will be doing much better when he comes back next year.
