A Tiger Woods record was just shattered (!) by a 19-year-old golf prodigy

Rose Zhang, 19, continues to impress the golf world, this time breaking a record previously set by Hall of Fame star Tiger Woods

Zhang, from California, is currently the No. 1 ranked women's amateur golfer in the world. 



In early April she won the Augusta National Women's Amateur where she set multiple scoring records. 

Later that month, she set a record for the number of weeks a player has held the No. 1 spot, holding it for an incredible 136 at that point. 

And on Monday, Zhang, who plays golf at Stanford University, broke another incredible golf record in an already impressive career at just 19 years old. 

Zhang won the 2023 NCAA Women's Golf Championship individual title, becoming the first player to win back-to-back NCAA titles in women's golf. 



The win also marked the 12th victory of her collegiate career, the most of any golfer at the history of Stanford. 

That history of course includes Woods, who won 11 times during his time at the university. He then went on to win 82 times on the PGA Tour, including 15 major championships. 

He shares the record for most PGA Tour wins with Sam Snead. He also was notably absent from the early US Open field list that was posted on Monday. 

PGA Tour players Maverick McNealy and Patrick Rodgers also won 11 times while playing at Stanford. 

The victory on Monday was also Zhang's eighth win this year alone in her sophomore season, tying the record for wins in a single NCAA season.
