The 16-year-old will tee off 7:43 a.m. Hawaii time in the McDonald's LPGA Championship in Bulle Rock Golf Course in Havre de Grace, Md.

On Friday, she will tee off at 1:37 a.m. Hawaii time.

Her playing partners in this women's major tournament will be Dorothy Delasin, who represents Turtle Bay Resort, and Mhairi McKay from Scotland.
