Teenage golfer Lucy Li, the seventh-ranked amateur woman in the world, has withdrawn from the inaugural Augusta National Women's Amateur with an undisclosed injury.
Tournament officials announced that Li, along with Alex Melton, have pulled out of the event, a 54-hole tournament whose final round will be played at Augusta National before Masters week.
Li, 16, shot to prominence at the 2014 US Women's Open when she became the youngest player to qualify for the championship at the age of 11.
