Guan Tianlang makes cut at the Masters; Youngest ever at 14-years-old
Wow!!! This kid is amazing! Guan Tianlang just made history as the youngest player to ever make the PGA Tour. The 14-year-old phenom from China made the cut for the Masters despite a one-stroke penalty for slow play.
Welcome to the big leagues Tianlang. He seemed to understand the decision:
“I respect the decision,” Guan told ESPN. “If I can make (the cut) I would be really happy for it, but if I didn’t make it, it’s still a great week.”
They don’t care that he’s a teenager.
John Paramor, a rules official from the European Tour assessed the penalty. When asked if Guan should have gotten a little bit of a break because he’s a 14-year old, Paramor responded:
“No, it’s the Masters.”
Guan won the Asia-Pacific Amateur, qualifying for the Masters and becoming the youngest player to ever compete in the event.
While other players may have sympathy for him, this is still the Masters. He might be making mistakes, but it’ll be a good learning experience.
And heck…he’s playing in the Masters!
