A rising star and tremendous talent on the LPGA golf scene, Danielle Kang was the first woman in 15 years to win back-to-back U.S. Amateurs in 2010 and 2011. Her impressive amateur resume includes a victory at the 2011 Women's North and South Amateur, held at Pinehurst No. 2, and a runner-up finish in the 2010 Canadian Women's Amateur. Kang also made the cut in four LPGA Tour majors as an amateur, her best finish coming in the 2011 Ricoh British Open where she earned the silver medal as the low amateur in the field. In 2007, as a 14-year-old high school junior, she successfully qualified for the U.S. Women's Amateur and competed in all four rounds. Kang went on to graduate high school a full semester early as a scholar-athlete before making her mark at Pepperdine University, where she was named WCC Freshman of the Year and a Second-Team All-American twice. A native of Westlake Village, Calif., Kang’s brother Alex played on the San Diego State University’s men’s golf team. For more information, follow Kang on Twitter @daniellekang.
