Coming of Age
China’s Tianlang Guan still remains as the youngest player to make a cut at a PGA Tour event, let alone the sport’s most prestigious Major. In April 2013, he shook the golf world when he made the cut at the Masters while still enrolled in middle school. The Guangzhou native was just 14 years, 5 months and 18 days old when he qualified.
Now 21, the University of Arizona sophomore admits he is leaning toward turning pro and has already examined the PGA Tour Series-China’s schedule. “It feels pretty good to get full status,” said Guan after finishing T10 at the PGA TOUR Series-China Qualifying Tournament in Guangzhou. “I think I will turn pro soon, but I still need some time to think about everything.”
