10-year-old girl qualifies for U.S. Women's Amateur
Add the name Latanna Stone to the list of qualifiers for the U.S. Women's Amateur, which will be held next month in Cleveland. Stone won medalist honors after firing a 70 on July 13 at the Wanderers Club in Wellington, Fla.
So, what makes Stone so special?
She's 4-feet-8-inches tall. Also, she's 10 years old.
Stone is reportedly the youngest person to qualify for a USGA event, breaking the previous record of 12. The tournament will take place Aug. 6-12 at The Country Club in Cleveland.
Stone has apparently been preparing for her time in the spotlight. She has a big-name coach, Charlotta Sorenstam (Annika's younger sister), and her own website, which states that Stone has won 102 tournaments and drives the ball 180 yards. And yes, Stone also has her own Twitter account.
