Abstract: A Zoll metric is a Riemannian metric whose geodesics are all circles of equal length. Via the twistor correspondence of LeBrun and Mason, a Zoll metric on the sphere $ \mathbb{S}^{2}$ corresponds to a family of holomorphic disks in $ \mathbb{CP}_{2}$ with boundary in a totally real submanifold $ P\subset\mathbb{CP}_{2}$. In this paper, we show that for a fixed $ P\subset \mathbb{CP}_{2}$, such a family is unique if it exists, implying that the twistor correspondence of LeBrun and Mason is injective. One of the key ingredients in the proof is the blow-up and blow-down constructions in the sense of Melrose.
