This golf gold is very important for Taiwan. We’ve never had a female player win gold in this competition. Hsu Huai-chien is a very disciplined child, and her entire family, her parents, are all so supportive.

Hsu Huai-chien is very clear-minded about what she wants to do. That’s the Huai-chien I know. So she manages her time extremely well, balancing her golf training with her studies.
Hsu was introduced to golf by her father, and her talent was apparent at a young age. She won the 2021 Junior World Championships in the girls’ 15-18 age group. She’s currently a sophomore at the University of Texas, Austin, where she’s on a full scholarship.
