The Unbridled Joy Of Youth

A young lady has qualified for the US Women’s Amateur.

A young lady of 10

Latanna qualified by shooting a two-under 70 in a regional qualifier. Her handicap is a plus-one. She drives the ball 225 yards. And she does not play from the red tees.

The USWA is August 6-12 in Cleveland, where Latanna will compete with the best female amateur golfers in the country. She’s the youngest to ever qualify for the tournament, though it really wasn’t a fluke.

The best quote from the interview goes roughly like this:

Reporter: What’s the most strokes you’ve ever given a guy?

Latanna: Um, 14 I think.

Reporter: Did you win?

Latanna: Well duh.

She’s precious.

    Sorry, if she’s ten, i’m one hundred… methinks
    there’s some skullduggery afoot…

    She looks older than that, for sure, but to my ear the voice and the attitude are perfect for that age.
