Corpuz taking her shot

Kapolei phenom Allisen Corpuz will try to make her way into the field of the Hawaii Pearl Open on Tuesday.

Corpuz, 11, was the youngest golfer to compete in a U.S. Golf Association championship when she entered the U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links Championship in 2008.

University of Hawaii golfer Jared Sawada will also be trying to make it into the field.

Corpuz will tee off in qualifying on Tuesday at 8:30 a.m. at the Pearl Country Club.

The tournament begins Friday with Jesse Mueller and Bradley Shigezawa trying to defend their titles.
