Chinese prodigy to compete in golf Masters


A 14-year-old boy is going to compete in the 2013 Masters.

Guan Tianlang of Guangzhou, China won the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship in Thailand on Sunday, earning the right to become the youngest ever golfer to compete in the tournament.

The former Junior World Champion in the 11 to 12-year-old category shot a final round in one-under-par at the Amata Spring Country Club in Bangkok to win by a single stroke.

When the Masters tees off in Augusta on April 8 he will be more that two years younger than the previous record holder, Matteo Manassero of Italy, who competed at the 2010 masters aged 16.
