Lucy Li shoots 78 at Women’s Open, but comes up short

By Aubrie Reichardt,

Lucy Li, who qualified for the U.S. Women’s Open at just 11-years-old, didn’t quite make the cut. The golfer may not have won, but she has learned a lot from the experience and has plenty of memories to take with her.

On Friday, she managed to get two birdies on Friday and on Thursday, she scored a triple bogey. Overall, it wasn’t enough for the young player, who scored a 16-over-par 156 over two days.

Li said that, if anything, she learned patience from the experience, according to San Jose Mercury News.

"I'm really happy by how I played," Li told the media. "I'm happy with how I bounced back after some big numbers."

Li signed over 100 autographs and became a golfer princesses, but she’s not letting the fame get to her. Li’s free spirit and happy attitude won over the crowd more than her golfing skills.

She is thankful for the people she got to play against and her caddie, Bryan Bush. He looked over Li through the past two days and continued to be amazed by her. He was proud of how she came back from her triple-bogey with a par and a birdie, notes USA Today.

Li isn’t done playing this year. She has the U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links on the 14.
