Transcript for 11-Year-Old Golf Prodigy Just Wants to 'Have Fun and Learn'
Yes, I would love for you to meet this sixth grade swinging sensation taking the golf world by storm. At just 11 she will and making her debut at one of the most prestigious golf tournaments in the world. She's the pint-sized sixth grader with pigtail. Braces and a powerful swing. I like golf because it's different from other sports. Anybody can play it. If you're tall, short, fast or slow, that's what I like about it. Reporter: Now Lucy Li, the 11-year-old golf projects Ji from California, is set to take center stage at the U.S. Women's open on Thursday. The youngest player ever to qualify. A history-making fact that doesn't seem to faze this champion in the making. It's pretty amazing but I don't really -- I try not to think about it. I'm just another player, just trying to do the best that I can. Reporter: What about those fans? Watching her every move. I like crowds. They don't bother me. I play better the more people that come watch me so, yeah, I'm really excited. Reporter: Training since she was 7. Lucy took up golf after watching her older brother play. Check out this video of Lucy practicing her swing. Did I mention she was 8 at the time. Did your dad beat you? No. Lucy is approaching this in a very good way, which is I want to come here and just play the best I can and have fun. I really don't care about the outcome. It's just I want to have fun and learn. I can learn -- I want to learn a lot from these great players. And they might learn a thing or two from you. Okay, so it all starts on Thursday. They'll play a round and we're wishing her the best. I hope she keeps that attitude. I don't care how it goes. I just want to have fun. For her to say anybody can play golf because she hasn't seen me try. Anybody can walk out on the course. Playing well is different.
