Guan Tianlang attempts to defend his Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship title this week with another Masters invite on the line. Will he be up to the task?
Guan Tialang's triumph at the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship can only spell good things for golf on a global scale, writes ESPN.com's Bob Harig.
A 14-year-old middle school student from China who uses a belly putter will become the youngest player in Masters history next April after he won an Asian amateur event devised to help grow the game of golf in that region of the world.
One week after turning 14, Guan Tianlang of China had a 6-under 66 to build a two-shot lead Thursday after the opening round of the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship.
Tianlang Guan, Tiger Woods and Adam Scott made for a wild week at the Masters, writes ESPN.com's Bob Harig.
Tianlang Guan, 14, saw more spectators - by far - on Monday than he is used to seeing on a golf course, just one of many new experiences for the youngest competitor in Masters history.
