Wei Ling Hsu

Pro golfer Wei Ling Hsu scored a major win, putting her in the big leagues

Profile


The 26-year-old golfer Wei Ling Hsu won her first LPGA tournament for the first time in May 2021, where she beat Thailand in the Pure Silk Championship. It was a victory she had been waiting for since she joined the Ladies Professional Golf Association seven years ago—and a win that was especially meaningful as Taiwan was under lockdown and she had hoped to boost Taiwanese spirits.

Hsu, who started playing golf at the age of seven and turned pro in 2012, made her Olympic debut at the Tokyo Summer games, where she finished 15th, tying with USA and South Korea, a result of deciding to play it safe rather than trying to shoot for the green from the bunkers. She was the only Taiwanese player eligible for the CME Tour Championship, the LPGA’s final battle of 2021.
