Youngster Li qualifies for US Women`s Open
At age 11, American Lucy Li has become the youngest player to qualify for the US Women`s Open, tournament organizers reported on their web site Monday night.
Li, of Redwood City, California, earned her spot in the tournament by firing rounds of 74 and 68 at a sectional qualifying tournament.
The previous record for the youngest player in the event was Alexis Thompson who competed at 12 years, 4 months, 18 days in 2007.
In 2013, Li took part in the US Women`s Amateur Public Links Championship where she missed the cut.
The 2014 US Women`s Open will run from June 19-22 at Pinehurst Resort in Pinehurst, North Carolina.
