Gianna Clemente

Gianna Clemente plays her tee shot at the second hole during the first round of stroke play at the 2019 U.S. Womenís Amateur at Old Waverly Golf Club in West Point Monday.

WEST POINT – The youngest player in the field of the 119th U.S. Women’s amateur championship summed up her 9-over par round in pretty simple terms.

“I think I’ll be a little bit better (Tuesday),” Gianna Clemente said. “I didn’t play my best, but I didn’t play my worst either.”

The 11-year-old from Warren, Ohio, is just the third youngest player to ever play in the tournament. She qualified with a 1-under 71 at the Williamsburg, Virginia, qualifier.
