Breaking News:

Chinese golfer, 14, will become youngest to play in Masters

The SportsXchange

Guan Tianglang, a 14-year-old from China, will become the youngest player in history to play in the Masters next April after he won an Asian amateur event to qualify.

Guan won the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship in Thailand on Sunday, shooting a final-round 71 to win by a stroke.

Guan was the youngest player in the field of this tournament, which began three years ago with the backing of Augusta National Golf Club. The winner automatically qualifies for the year's first major.

At 14 years, five months and 17 days, Guan will be the youngest player to compete in the Masters by more than two years. Italy's Matteo Manassero was 16 when he played in 2010, and he is currently then youngest to play in the Masters.

Earlier this year, Guan became the youngest golfer to play in a European Tour event when, at age 13, he played in the China Open.
