When 11-year-old amateur Lucy Li tees it up at the U.S. Women's Open, she won't be playing for money, but she'll have some pricey clubs in her bag.
Li carries a trio of wedges and a putter from Edel Golf. The 5-foot-tall Li was fit in Orlando in January, and the test results suggested she use 52-, 56- and 60-degree wedges with a "driver" grind, and a shaft that is an inch less than standard. The putter is Edel's Deschutes model at 32 inches long with a "pixl" insert and 2 degrees of loft.
The middle-schooler added personal touches, too, having her name stamped in purple with additional dots, circles and hearts engraved.
On the putter, her name is engraved on the toe and filled with pink paint.
All told, those clubs would cost more than $1,000. Hopefully she got a raise in her allowance.
Golf Digest equipment editor Mike Stachura discussed Li's clubs, and the state of golf equipment today, in a weekly appearance on Golf Channel's "Morning Drive".
