The top female golfers from the United States and around the world will tee it up at Pinehurst in June for the U.S. Women's Open. And among the field at that major championship will be Lucy Li, an 11-year-old.
Li, a sixth grader from Redwood Shores, California, on Monday became the youngest ever to qualify for the event. She carded rounds of 74 and 68 on the Old Course at Half Moon Bay Golf Links in California to not only qualify but also win by seven strokes. Li will be 11 years 8 months and 19 days old when she tees it up June 19 at Pinehurst Resort & Country Club in Pinehurst, North Carolina.
