May 31, 2022

World No. 1 amateur Rose Zhang became not only the first college golfer, but the first student athlete to sign an NIL (Name, Image, and Likeness) deal with Adidas. The announcement came Tuesday, just in time for the 19-year-old’s fourth U.S. Women’s Open appearance. Last week the Stanford freshman also added an NCAA individual and team championship at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale to her lengthy junior and amateur golf resume. Golf Digest
