Move over Tadd, Alexis Thomson is in U.S. Women's Open

Just in 2006, Hawaiian Tadd Fujikawa became the youngest male to qualify to the USGA's U.S. Open. Fujikawa, who made a cut in a PGA Tour event this year, was only 15 years old. In Southern Pines, North Carolina, American twelve year old Alexis Thomson became the youngest qualifier to the U.S. Women's Open in history.

The previous record was held by now 19 year old Morgan Pressel, but she was ousted by around six months. Of course, it is easy to compare the youngster to Michelle Wie, but the two are hardly similar.
Thomson will head to the Women's Open with a pretty healthy mentality, telling reporters, "If I make the cut it's going to be really awesome and if I don't it's all right." On the other hand, Thomson appears comfortable with her new celebrity status, already signing autographs for fans.

The U.S. Women's Open kicks off officially next Thursday, to be contested by 156 of the world's best female golfers.
