Amy Yang finished in a tie for fourth place at the AIG Women's Open in 2023, her 21st top-10 finish in a major.
She was twice a runner-up in the US Women's Open, losing by four shots to Na Yeon Choi in 2012 and then by just one to another of her compatriots, In Gee Chun, three years later.
On the second of those occasions Yang led by three after the second and third rounds, but Chun, making her debut in the championship and playing on invitation because she had yet to hold an LPGA Tour card, closed with a 66 to snatch the title away from her. An eagle on the 16th and birdie on the 17th re-ignited Yang’s hopes, but she bogeyed the last.
Yang won the Smyth Salver – awarded to the best-placed amateur – at the AIG Women's Open in 2006.
She has won five LPGA titles, most recently winning the CME Group Tour Championship in November 2023, and three Ladies European Tour events, the first of them as an amateur.
