11-year-old Lucy Li keeping mum on U.S. Women's Open

11-year-old golf phenom Lucy Li isn't granting interviews after qualifying for the U.S. Women's Open

Lucy Li might be the talk of the golf world, but she isn't doing much talking herself.

The family of the 11-year-old phenom, who made history this week by becoming the youngest player to qualify for the U.S. Women's Open, released a statement on Wednesday announcing that she would not be granting interviews in the near future.

"We are very grateful for the support Lucy has received, both from the golf community and the media," the statement said. "She is looking forward to playing at Pinehurst.”

The U.S. Golf Assn. said that Li has been inundated with media requests.

The sixth-grader from Redwood Shores, Calif., earned her spot in the field by way of a qualifier on Monday.

The 2014 U.S. Women's Open is scheduled to tee off on June 19 at North Carolina's Pinehurst golf club.
