Li on fire at US Open

PINEHURST, North Carolina - Lucy Li, an 11-year-old who won a skills event at Augusta National in April, fired an eight-over-par 78 yesterday in a historic US Women's Open first round.

Li, the youngest qualifier in US Women's Open history at age 10, was proudly holding an ice cream cone in her left hand while answering questions about her round on a hot day at formidable Pinehurst.

"Getting to play in the US Open was a lot of fun. I kind of struggled today, but it was great," Li said.

"I'm happy with how I played. It's 8-over, it's not bad. But I was 7-over in three holes, so that's 1-over in 15 holes. So, I just need to get rid of the big numbers."

Li won the 10-11 age group title at the inaugural Drive, Chip and Putt Championship three months ago at Augusta National.

Li did not have a score in mind when she teed off, concerned more about performance than results.

"I was just trying to have fun, go out and play my best, whatever that was," she said.

"I'm happy I broke 80, because I got two doubles and a triple and that can really ruin a score. But I'm glad I got it back after that."
