European Tour Profile




Zhang has played in every Macao Open bar one since its inauguration in 1998. He is one of two players to have won the tournament twice and the only golfer to defend his title when he won in 2001 and 2002. The Zhuhai native is recognised as one of China’s golfing pioneers where he paved the way for other professionals to follow in his footsteps. He made history in 2004 when he earned an invitation to play in the Masters Tournament, making him the first mainland Chinese player to tee up at Augusta National. A regular on the Senior Tour now, Zhang claimed his nation’s first title on the European Senior Tour at the SSE Enterprise Wales Senior Open earlier this year.
