Lucy Li burst onto the golf scene at the tender age of 11 when she qualified for the 2014 U.S. Women’s Open at Pinehurst Resort, Course No. 2 in North Carolina. Fast forward to six years later, and Li was competing on the Epson Tour, striving to make her way to the LPGA Tour.
After a strong start to her professional career, finishing 8th in the 2020 Race for the Card on the Epson Tour, the COVID-19 pandemic led to restricted events, resulting in LPGA Tour cards being given to the top five on the Official Money List instead of the usual top 10. Despite a subpar 2021 season, Li finally showcased her potential in 2022, winning twice on the Epson Tour and securing the No. 1 spot in the Race for the Card, earning LPGA Tour Membership for the 2023 season.
As a 20-year-old rookie on the LPGA Tour, Li made an impressive start, making the cut in seven of her first eight events. Although she faced challenges midway through the season, Li expressed optimism and determination for the coming year.
Now 21, Li is tied for eighth at the midway point of LPGA Q-Series, where she has shown her resilience by firing back-to-back 67s in her second and third rounds. “I feel really good. I feel really comfortable on the courses, which hasn’t happened in a while. I’m just happy to keep going and doing what I’m doing,” said Li.
With her sights set on regaining full status on the LPGA Tour, Li is poised to continue her journey with a sense of confidence and relaxation, hitting numerous greens and demonstrating her skill and talent on the course.
