14-Year Old Golfer Makes The Cut At The Masters

An incredible story and one for the history books.  He’s only 14 years old and he’s playing in one of the most prestigious golf tournaments in the world.  Tianlang Guan of China made the cut for the Masters at Augusta Country Club in Georgia after shooting a 3 over par 75 on Friday.  It means the 8th grader will play Saturday and Sunday. 

As if playing at the famed country club wasn’t tough enough, tournament officials assessed him a controversial one stroke penalty for slow play on the 17th hole.  Even with the penalty his score was good enough to qualify for the final rounds.

At 14 years old, he smashes the previous record when Matteo Manassero made the cut when he was just 16 years old.  In a bit of irony, Manassero was Guan’s playing partner on Friday.

Guan qualified for the Masters when he won the the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship in November.  He got off to a rough start on Friday, but made par on the final 11 holes (not including the penalty).  Even though he’s a long-shot, he still has a chance to win a famed green jacket as golf fans across the world cheer him on.
