Li, 11, qualifies for US Women’s Open
She is only 11-years-old yet Lucy Li upstaged veterans of the game by winning the US Women’s Open sectional qualifier at Half Moon Bay in California.
The youngster shot rounds of 74 and 68 on the par-72 Old Course to beat second-place qualifier Kathleen Scavo by seven strokes, and book her place in the 2014 tournament at Pinehurst No. 2 from June 19-22.
Although she won’t be the youngest player to take part in the US Women’s Open – that honour goes to Beverly Klass, who played the 1967 Open when she was 10 without having to qualify – she will surpass Lexi Thompson as the youngest qualifier.
Thompson was 12 years and four months when she set the record in 2007.
Li, who started playing when she was seven, recently won her age group at Augusta National’s inaugural Drive, Chip and Putt Championship ahead of the Masters.
