Lucy Li does interview eating ice cream and standing on a box
Lucy Li, the 11-year-old phenom who qualified for the U.S. Women's Open, shot a 78 in her first round today on Pinehurst No. 2. That is a fantastic score.
Even more fantastic: She did her post-round interview while eating ice cream – and standing on a box so she could reach the microphone.

In her chat with reporters, she said that that Pinehurst No. 2 was hard because "even on the shortest holes, if you're not in the right place, you can get doubles easily."
Li, in fact, made two doubles, as well as a triple and two bogeys. But she also had a couple of birdies, and her 78 was better than the 79s posted by Jessica Korda and Natalie Gulbis.
Her plan for the rest of the afternoon sounds like a good one, too: Eat more ice cream.
