Eleven-year-old Lucy Li missed the cut with a second 78 as fellow American Michelle Wie led at the halfway stage of the US Women’s Open.
Amateur Li, the youngest qualifier in US Open history, ended 16 over to miss out on the weekend by six shots.
Li, who beat the record for youngest qualifier held by the 12-year-old Thompson in 2007, carded a double bogey and a triple bogey alongside five other bogeys and two birdies.
“I’m really happy with how I bounced back from the big numbers,” said Li, “It’s been a great week.
“I did a good job staying patient and going to the next shot and not caring about what happens.”
Love the patriotism! Can’t wait to see more of her!
