Eleven-year-old Lucy Li, the youngest qualifier to ever tee it up at the U.S. Women’s Open, dressed for the occasion in an American themed red, white and blue outfit.

Li held her own at Pinehurst No. 2 except for three bad holes. She wound up with an 8-over 78. That put her 11 shots behind the early leader, two-time major champion Stacy Lewis.
