Li recently played in the second stage of LPGA Qualifying School and tied for 72nd, which secured her Symetra Tour card for next season. But even if she would have advanced to the final stage she wouldn’t have been able to play full time on the LPGA next season. The LPGA has a rule that states its members must be 18 years old. Li turned 17 on Oct. 1, but she still can earn her LPGA card for 2021.
While Li has a lengthy list of accomplishments on her resume, one of her most recent headlines came due to a controversy surrounding her amateur status. Earlier this year she appeared in a commercial for the Apple Watch, but the USGA investigated the matter and handed her a one-time warning.
