Nike Golf Adds Two Young Athletes from China: Hao-Tong Li and Xin-Jun Zhang

The golf explosion in China continues, and as we see more and more fine young Chinese players appear on tours all over the world, the major brands are taking notice.

Nike Golf has announced that they’ve added two Chinese athletes to their tour roster: Hao-Tong Li and Xin-Jun Zhang.

Hao-Tong Li

Hao-Tong Li

Li is from the Hunan province in China, and turned professional in 2011 at the age of 16. Can’t remember what I was doing at 16, but I’m pretty sure it wasn’t playing golf for a living. Li has taken home 9 golf medals and 6 silver medals as an amateur in past Asian games across China. He also finished a respectable T21 in the 2011 One Asia Nanshan Masters, named ‘Best Amateur Player’ in the process. Li’s impressive resume grew with appearances on the Chinese National team in 2010 and 2011, and he also competed in the Australian PGA Championship and New Zealand PGA Championship this year. Expect big things from Li, I know Nike is.

What’s in Li’s bag?

Xin-Jun Zhang

Xin-Jung Zhang

Zhang hails from the Shanxi province in China, and turned professional in 2010 at the age of 23. This 26-year old was a member of the Chinese National Team in 2007. After turning professional, he finished an impressive T13 in the 2011 Shanghai HSBC Championship, and won 2 gold medals and 1 silver in Chinese Professional Tournaments in 2011 and 2012. Another fine young player indeed.

What’s in Zhang’s bag?

Driver: Nike VR_S Covert 8.5-degree, Neutral position
Fairway Wood: Nike VR Pro Limited Edition 3-wood/15-degree
Hybrid: Nike VR_S 2-hybrid/17-degree

Wedges: Nike VR Forged 52-degree and 58-degree

The addition of these players to Nike Golf’s tour roster is a milestone of sorts. Li and Zhang are the first ‘head-to-toe’ athletes in China, with clubs, ball, footwear, glove, apparel, headwear and all other accessories manufactured by Nike.

Best of luck to Li and Zhang in their careers, and I hope the Nike gear comes through big!
