2019–20 Fantasy Outlook
Perched atop the Korn Ferry Tour Regular Season Points List, Zhang collected a pair of wins at the Dormie Network Classic at Briggs Ranch and the Lincoln Land Championship to go along with seven total top-10s in 20 events played this season. Albeit it at a lower level of competition, it was quite a bounce-back effort for Zhang, who had missed the cut in 16 of 28 starts as a PGA Tour rookie the year prior. That disappointing campaign came on the heels of controversy as Zhang became infamous on the Chinese Tour in 2014 due to signing for incorrect scores, on more than one occasion. On the KFT, Zhang ranked second in both scoring and birdie average thanks in large part to stellar putting statistics. Read Past Outlooks
T4 in Houston
October 15, 2019
Zhang fired a six-under 66 on Sunday at the Houston Open to finish 11-under and tied for fourth.
ANALYSIS
Zhang racked up an impressive 23 birdies in 72 holes at the Golf Club of Houston, but a four-over 76 on Friday ultimately kept him from contention. Nonetheless, he's now finished T4-T16-T7 in three starts dating to the Safeway Open after a shaky start to the 2019-20 campaign. Zhang also ranked ninth in SG: Around-the-Green and fourth in putts per GIR down in Houston.

Despite missing 10 of 23 cuts and withdrawing during another start, Zhang's pair of runner-up finishes were enough of a boost to place him inside the top-25 of the Web.com's regular season money list. Zhang ranked 33rd in GIR percentage and 51st in birdie average, though he didn't excel in one specific category throughout the season. He also posted an impressive T21 at the WGC-HSBC Champions event in late October, despite carding a final-round 76.
