He was the driving force behind Cal’s first NCAA Championships appearance since 2019, as he reeled off five straight top-10 finishes from March 5-May 15, including a runner-up finish at the NCAA Rancho Santa Fe Regional.
Zheng finished 14th in the PGA TOUR University rankings at the conclusion of the 2023-24 collegiate season, and earned fully exempt membership on PGA TOUR Americas for the remainder of the 2024 professional campaign, as well as an exemption for the second stage of 2024 PGA TOUR Q-School.
