11 years old… Yep just 11

Just WOW! Actually, yeah.. just Wow!

Golf has definitely bypassed the stereotypes of being ‘boring’ ‘fat’ and ‘Old’ in the last 10 years or so, we welcome the new era, athletic, exhilarating and full of youth!

This week has been another huge one in the world of golf. The growth of golf has been tremendous all over the world, especially in China, and a product of this huge trend is Lucy Li! Earlier this year, 11 year old Lucy Li won her age division at the Drive, Chip and Putt Championship at the Masters.

That’s not the biggest news for her this year though as this past Monday, she qualified for the US Women’s Open at PinehurstNo.2 this year by winning her sectional qualifier at Half Moon Bay by seven strokes! This breaks Lexi Thompson’s record of being the youngest ever to compete in the US Women’s Open at the age of 12 back in 2007. Definitely not bad for an 11 year old!
