Andy Zhang (born 14 December 1997) is a Chinese amateur golfer who spent much of his childhood in Beijing, China. He first became interested in golf at age six, and began working with a coach at age seven. At the age of ten, he moved to Bradenton, Florida in the United States to pursue golf. After professional golfer Paul Casey withdrew from the 2012 U.S. Open due to an injury, Zhang, who became an alternate after performing well in sectional qualifying, was put into the field for the Open, one of the four men's major golf championships. He is the youngest player to ever participate in the U.S. Open at the age of 14. On 6 January 2015, Zhang, a Class of 2016 recruit, verbally committed to play college golf for the University of Florida, picking the Gators over Oklahoma State, Texas and Florida State, among others.
