I thought her name sounded familiar.  And how about 14 year old's Avery Zweig and Chole Kovalevsky, and another 17 year old recent winner at Augusta, Tsubasa Kajitani.  Is it just me or is the field getting younger as the years roll along?

Here are the 29 amateurs in the 2021 U.S. Women's Open (amateurgolf.com)

There have been young teenagers playing in the women’s us open for a while.  Wie and Pressel were about 13 in their first event.  Training for younger golfers has come a long way and younger kids are getting better and better.  I  don’t expect to see this same trend on the men’s side just due to overall physical strength.  Just shows there are a lot of talented players that are coming up through the ranks; maybe some will be even better than the ones we consider GOATs today.

Lucy Li was 11 when she played in the 2014 US Women's Open.  She is +2 after the first round and tied for 41st.  I expect her to move up.

Megha Ganne won the Scott Robertson in my neck of the woods two weeks ago.  Not only did she win, she waxed a really strong field.  Her younger sister finished third in the 14u category and has only been playing golf for a bit over a year!

Just take a look through the past winners of this event.  It's elite!

Watching the morning featured group and the commentators are saying they won’t be cutting the rough anymore and the fact that it goes straight from fairway to rough.  Course is a beast if you miss the fairway.

Been enjoying the feature group coverage on peacock.  There have been some great player caddie exchanges.  .

It'll be interesting to see what Reid will shoot today. She's got some tough competition at the top of the leaderboard with Ganne, Kang and Yin not to mention Feng.

I'm not a Reid fan (sorry Reid fans) and will be rooting for someone with a US Flag to raise the hardware.  Lexi, are you listening? 🙂

I don't think Lexi is accurate enough off the tee, and even she is not strong enough to dig the ball out of that rough and get it to the green.

Reid is playing well , not making any big mistakes. Saso having a great day , but not getting much coverage right now. I’m rooting for Feng to win she is the coolest personality on the LPGA.

Agree. If she can keep it together tomorrow there’s a chance, but come  Sunday the margin for error is going to be very thin.

The course dose not look to be any easier today based on the scoring so far. Only four of those out in red numbers.  I think in Ganne gets off to a hot start, she may very well get it done.

Really impressive grind performance by Ganne thus far.  A handful of great par putt saves. She seems totally energized and the crowd is loving her. And, don't look now but here comes Lexi.

Just an amazing performance so far by the 17 year old.  Would be amazing to see her pull it off.  Highly unlikely, but I'd love to see it happen.

Nothing presently.  I'm doing a full rebuild soon after my golfer's elbow heals and I get a full fitting.

Ugghhh....  Lexi has rolled about 4 birdie putts to the lip.  She could easily have the lead right now.

Lexi was awesome today. Not a big fan of the golf channel coverage though. Did they even show anything from Inbee and Shanshan? I know they didn’t have the best days, but not showing them is strange.

My guess is that because those two typically have or are near the lead seemingly every weekend, and probably have more shot coverage than most of the field combined, they just wanted to share the wealth 🙂.  

This course is playing as a US Open should - only 7 players under par going into the final round.  Shaping up to be a really good finish.

I need to watch this tomorrow instead of the Memorial. I don’t know many names at all, so it will be pretty cool to start seeing who some of these good players are.

Lexi blew the field away today, keeping the ball in the fairway will be the key for her tomorrow that rough is no joke.
