Yin won the 7–8 year old Junior World Golf Championships, won the California State Women’s Amateur as a 12 year old and again as a 14 year old, was the youngest player at the 2011 U.S. Women's Amateur, was co-medalist at a U.S. Women's Amateur, and was the youngest player in the field at the 2012 Women’s U.S. Open (also the second youngest in history).
Yin posted five top-5 finishes in 2017. Her "powerful swing and ebullient personality" brought her attention from Juli Inkster, U.S. Solheim Cup captain, who named Yin as a captain's pick for the 2017 Solheim Cup. She became the youngest player on either team. She scored 1.5 points out of 3 matches. On December 9, 2017, she won the Omega Dubai Ladies Classic for her first professional victory. Yin started off the 2019 season tying for fourth in the ISPS Handa Women's Australian Open on February 27, 2019.
Yin was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. Her mother, Michelle Liu, a businesswoman who immigrated to the U.S. from China, caddied for Yin when she was still an amateur. Yin attended Arcadia High School (California), but finished her degree online.
