U.S. Women’s Open
The road Michelle Wie took to a U.S. Women’s Open title was unlike any other, and suddenly insignificant. Whether this was a long time coming was the least of her cares.
Michelle Wie delivered the best comparison of all between the men and women at Pinehurst No. 2. She was threatening to turn this major into a runaway.
Stacy Lewis has the early edge at Pinehurst No. 2. But so far, the conversation at this year’s Women’s Open has centered around 11-year-old Lucy Li.
Lucy Li is the youngest ever to qualify for the golf tournament. But not everyone has welcomed her with open arms.
Lucy Li showed her age only when she finished her historic round Thursday at the U.S. Women’s Open. Just like any 11-year-old, she went straight for an ice cream.
Lucy Li, a sixth-grader from California, is the youngest qualifier in the history of the U.S. Women’s Open.
And after watching Inbee Park win the 2013 U.S. Women’s Open on challenging Sebonack Golf Club, her third straight major victory of the season, I’d add her name to the elite list of the most mentally tough athletes.
South Korean Inbee Park is one round from making history by winning the first three majors of the year.
Could this spectacular venue in the New York metropolitan area, in the No. 1 media market, provide the boost that women’s professional golf needs in our country?
For the first time, a golf course on Long Island will play host to the U.S. Women’s Open, and a local golf prodigy will be on the links showcasing her talent.
