11-year-old golf phenom qualifies for U.S. Women's Open

Lucy Li, an 11-year-old from Redwood Shores, Calif., qualified for next month's major, becoming the youngest ever to do so in the history of this storied championship.

Li did so by shooting incredible rounds of 74-68 at Half Moon Bay in California on Monday, qualifying for the championship at Pinehurst that will take place the week after the men play their U.S. Open on the same course.
