Valencia High freshman Alison Lee shot an 11-over par, 82, in the first round of the U.S. Women’s Open at Oakmont Country Club in Pennsylvania.
She is one of seven golfers, including Michelle Wie, who shot 11-over in the first round of the golf tournament.
Brittany Lang was 2-under par in the first round and leads the U.S. Women’s Open by one stroke. Four players, including amateur Kelli Shean, are tied for second at 1-under par.
The 15-year-old Lee is making her second appearance in the U.S. Women’s Open. She had one birdie, six bogeys and three double bogeys. The par 4s gave her the most trouble. She was 8-over par on the 11 par-4s on the course. Her only birdie came on the par-3 16th hole.
Lee tees off for her second round at 9:41 this morning. She is grouped with Meredith Duncan and Jennifer Kirby.
In the NBA, LeBron James will join Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh and play for the Miami Heat next year, ending the biggest free-agent drama of the off-season.
James won two MVPs and led the Cleveland Cavaliers to the best record in the NBA last year. But he has yet to win an NBA championship. The Cavaliers were eliminated by the Boston Celtics in the playoffs last year.
James was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2003 NBA draft. Bosh and Wade were also drafted in 2003. The Toronto Raptors made Bosh the No. 4 overall pick. The Heat picked Wade at No. 5.
Meanwhile, the Lakers made a little noise in the free-agent market, signing veteran point guard Steve Blake away from the Clippers.
As for the Clippers, their half-hearted attempt to land James was unsuccessful. Instead, the Clippers signed Randy Foye and Ryan Gomes. Foye averaged 10.1 points and 3.3 assists per game with the Washington Wizards last season. Gomes scored 10.9 points and had 4.6 rebounds per game for the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2010. Plenty of room on that Clippers bandwagon.
The Dodgers beat the Chicago Cubs, 3-2, behind a 12-strikeout performance by Dodger starter Clayton Kershaw.

Game 2 of the series with the Cubs is tonight at Dodger Stadium. It will be Chad Billingsley on the mound for the Dodgers against Ted Lilly for the Cubs. Pregame starts at 6:30 on AM 1220, KHTS.
