Tianlang Guan Making History at 2013 Masters
For the first time in a long time the topic of conversation in the sports world involves someone who has yet to graduate from middle school. Chinese golfer Tianlang Guan may be just 14-years of age, but he is playing the Masters like a 10 year veteran of the PGA Tour. Guan finished his first day at Augusta with a total score of 73 which puts him one over par for the course.
The tour likes to pair the youngest golfers with some of the oldest and Ben Crenshaw, 61, was grouped with Guan for this tournament. Crenshaw has two Masters titles of his own, however he was thoroughly impressed with the mindset that Guan has at just 14 years of age. Playing at a top-notch level Guan has taken Augusta by storm, but he still has a long way to go before he is wearing the green jacket on Sunday.
Guan is the the youngest golfer in 148 years to take the course at a major event and you can bet the Chinese golfer will be a mainstay on the PGA tour when that time comes. Believe it or not Phil Mickelson did not play in his first major event until he turned 40 years old and Tiger Woods entered his first major at the elderly age of 19. Guan has a head start on these two legends, but the question remains whether or not the Chinese middle-schooler can hang with the big boys.
For now we have to enjoy the stretch that this kid is on and wait for the inevitable collapse as this course is simply too difficult for a player with as little experience as Guan to reel in the green jacket.
