Too Young? 11-Year-Old Tees Off at U.S. Women’s Open
How young is “too young” when it comes to playing on one of the biggest stages in sports? Just yesterday we brought you the story of a nine-year-old basketball phenom who is dominating high school competition and already has drawn interest from a college.
Today the co-hosts of ‘Outnumbered’ talked about a rising golf star, 11-year-old Lucy Li, who teed off early this morning at the U.S. Women’s Open. She is the youngest golfer ever to qualify for the event and she’s ready to play with the grown-ups!
However, the world’s top- ranked women’s golfer, Stacy Lewis said she believes Li is too young for the U.S. Open.
Even though Sandra Smith is a “big Stacy Lewis fan” she also said “this might be this little girl's only shot at the U.S. Open. Things might not work out five, 10 years from now for her. Let her go at it, it’s gonna be awesome to watch…”
Today’s #OneLuckyGuy Eric Bolling said he’s “all for this” and would like to see more young boys and girls getting involved in sports early on.
“I think this is great, I love America that you can be a young kid like this, excel at a sport, get out there and get after it,” Kimberly Guilfoyle said.
Watch the discussion above and tell us what you think! Is Lucy Li too young to be competing at the U.S. Open?
