LPGA Tour rookie Lucy Li has been fined for playing too slowly during the third round of the Chevron Championship.
Li was playing in a group alongside Gaby Lopez and Pavarisa Yokutan in the third round, but the latter two were not fined for slow play.
Li was only fined for her slow play infraction, but did not receive any penalty strokes. Her third-round 4-over 76 stood.
Per the LPGA Tour's policy that was obtained by Golf Digest, 1-10 seconds over the average time expected for a hole can result in what's called "fineable plus time" while over 10 seconds is where penalty strokes can come into play. This is all after first being given an official warning.
Li went on to follow Saturday's round with a second 76 on Sunday and finished the Chevron Championship in a tie for 54th at 7-over par.
Lilia Vu won the tournament Sunday evening in The Woodlands, Texas, for her first major championship and second career LPGA Tour victory.

The 25-year-old had previously won the Honda LPGA Thailand earlier this season in February.
On Sunday, she shot a final-round 4-under 68 to join fellow American, Angel Yin, at 10-under par to force a playoff.
Vu managed to make birdie on the first extra hole, the par-5 18th, to secure the victory over Yin.
World No. 2 Nelly Korda finished one-stroke back of the playoff at 9-under par. Five players, including World No. 5 Atthaya Thitkul, finished in a tie for fourth, two strokes back.
The next LPGA Tour major isn't until June, when the Tour heads to New Jersey for the KPMG Women's PGA Championship.
