Guan Tianlang, 14, is set to become the youngest player ever to play at the Masters â€” he tees off today at 12:24 pm Georgia time. He’s from Guangzhou, China (represent!). Actually, he’s paired with Matteo Manassero, the former “youngest golfer at the Masters” when he was 16 years old in 2010.
Here’s his latest tweet with one of the first female members of the Augusta National Golf Club, Condoleezza Rice. This kid’s still in 8th grade. Man. This story begs the question: What were YOU doing when you were 14 years old?
I was fortunate enough to go check out the U.S. Open on Tuesday. Yes, it was just a practice round, but cameras are not allowed during the actual tournament, only at practice rounds. So it’s a WIN for me. This was the second time I’ve seen Tiger Woods play. The first time was back in 2009 during the President’s Cup at Harding. This was a picture of him right before he pulled out a sandwich and started eating it.
I’m guessing he’s wearing his newly released (just last week)Â TW’13 pictured here:
Too bad I didn’t get to check out Andy Zhang, the youngest player ever to compete in the tournament. Nine over par after round 1–pretty good. Fourteen years old and whoa, he’s already six feet tall.
