Peng from Nanjing, China, will join the Huskies for the spring season. He competed for the Huskies in 2019-20 as a freshman before COVID-19 shut down the rest of the season.

The Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship is a partnership between the Masters Tournament, the Asia Pacific Golf Confederation and The R&A and is dedicated to promoting golf in the Asia-Pacific region. Invitations for the championship are sent to the leading players from the 42 Asia-Pacific Golf Confederation (APGC) affiliated organizations. Each organization is automatically provided with two positions, which are to be filled by their highest-ranked players from the World Amateur Golf Ranking (WAGR).

If there is only one or no players from a member organization in the Ranking, a member organization is able to nominate one or two players accordingly, provided the player(s) have a handicap of 5.4 or less.

The remainder of the field is filled by taking the next highest ranked players from the WAGR with the maximum number of players allowed from any organization being six. The only exception is for the host country, which is allowed to nominate an additional four players.

The 2021 AAC will be broadcast in more than 160 countries, again placing the AAC as the most televised amateur golf tournament in the world. This coverage will include three hours of live coverage all four days. A 30-minute wrap-up highlight will also be produced after the conclusion of the final round.
