Rapid Recap:

Lucy Li is starting to collect a few medals at USGA championships. The precocious 15-year-old from Redwood Shores, Calif., joined an exclusive group on Tuesday by becoming just the third player in history to earn medalist honors in both the U.S. Girls’ Junior and U.S. Women’s Amateur championships in the same year.

On a sweltering day when temperatures reached the mid-90s with a Heat Index of 99, the member of the victorious 2018 USA Curtis Cup Team matched the U.S. Women’s Amateur scoring record of 133 by carding a 6-under 65 at The Golf Club of Tennessee to share top honors with Selin Hyun, 17, of the Republic of Korea. Li’s 65 was the lowest in the two rounds of stroke play.

Li now joins 1986 U.S. Women’s Amateur champion Michiko Hattori and two-time champion Vicki Goetze (1989 and 1992) as the only golfers to achieve the medalist double. Goetze earned her dual medalist honors in 1990.

It was mixed results for the two Norman, Okla., players in the field. Yujeong Son shot 70 and tied for eighth at 4-under 138 to move safely into match play. Kaitlin Milligan of the University of Oklahoma shot a second-round 78 to finish at 151 and did not advance. The cut was at 3-over 145.

Son will play Madison Caldwell of Milton, Ga., at 11:50 a.m. in the first round of match play.

Li, a two-time U.S. Women’s Open qualifier who is No. 9 in the Women’s World Amateur Golf Ranking™, had a chance to break Mariel Galdiano’s Women’s Amateur 36-hole mark of 133, set in 2016 at Rolling Green Golf Club in Springfield, Pa., but her 12-foot birdie putt on the par-4 ninth hole – her 18th of the day – missed by inches. Li hit all 18 greens in regulation after hitting just 13 in Monday’s first round.

The nine players who finished at 3-over par 145 will playoff for the final spot in match play beginning at 7 a.m. CT Wednesday on the 10th hole. The 64 players who qualified for match play will play one 18-hole match with tee times beginning at 9:30 a.m. from the first tee. The winners advance to Thursday’s Round of 32. The Round of 16 will be contested on Thursday afternoon.
