Growing up in Southern California, Danielle Kang was a multi-talented athlete with a variety of interests and skills. Her original goal was to qualify for the Summer Olympics in Martial Arts, and she didn’t seriously start playing golf until she was 12 years old. Just two years later, at the age of 14, she qualified for the US Women’s Open as an amateur. At 16 and 17, she won back-to-back US Amateur Championships.
Danielle turned professional in 2011, and broke through on the LPGA TOUR in 2017 at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship – her first Major Championship, and the first of five professional wins. She has been a consistent presence on leaderboards, and has improved her World Golf Ranking in each of the past four years. She is a passionate, fiery competitor on the course and a tireless worker off the course, both in her dedication to her craft and to the charitable causes she devotes herself to.
