At 12 years, nine months and six days, Michelle Liu will become the youngest player ever to compete at the Canadian Women’s Open this week.

Liu qualified for the event, which started in 1973, via the Canadian Women’s Amateur Championship in July.

“I know there is a lot of great players in the field here so I definitely say it’s going to be pretty hard,” she added.

“I hope for a lot and I expect a little bit less.”
