    Lucy Li made two double bogeys, a triple bogey and finished her historic round at the U.S. Women's Open just like any other 11-year-old girl.

    She went straight for an ice cream.

    The sixth-grader from the Bay Area held her own at Pinehurst No. 2 except for three bad holes. Li wound up with an 8-over 78. That put her 11 shots behind the early leader, two-time major champion Stacy Lewis, and a long shot to become the youngest ever to make the cut in the Women's Open.

    Li already is the youngest qualifier in championship history. She dressed for the occasion — an American theme, with silver stars among her red, white and blue outfit.

    She made two birdies and a couple of grown-up par saves.

    Watch Lucy Li talk with the media about her first round while eating ice cream.
