Guan Tianlang is teeing it up with the big boys this week on the PGA TOUR at the CIMB Classic.
Famous for playing in the 2013 Masters as a 14-year-old, he's picked up a sponsor exemption into the field at Kuala Lumpur G&CC this week. Tianlang finished T5 at the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship on Sunday, so his form is relatively solid. While length was a real issue for him at Augusta 18 months ago, he's hinted that he's gotten a little longer off the tee as he's aged. Wed, Oct 29, 2014 07:31:00 AM

Guan Tianlang has accepted a sponsor exemption into the Sony Open.

The kid who played in the Masters at a 14-year-old has been relatively quiet on the world golf stage of late, failing to make a cut in an event on a major tour since his 71st in the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. Given Waialae Country Club is one of the shortest tracks around, his lack of length could give him a fighting chance at making the cut. Think along the lines of a Tadd Fujikawa.

Guan Tianlang reached the midpoint of the HP Byron Nelson Championship in 7-over-par 70-77=147 and will miss the cut.

The streak ends at two. The 14-year-old finally showed that he's human. After a tidy opener in which he traded two birdies with two bogeys, he hit just 10 greens in regulation in the second round en route to five bogeys -- all consecutively beginning at the 14th hole -- and two doubles. His lone highlight among today's pair of birdies was a conversion from 18'9" at the par-3 13th hole.

Guan Tianlang cruises into the weekend at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans where he's 3-under-par 72-69=141 after 36 holes.

Success is relative. He's nine shots off the pace of the 36-hole clubhouse lead with weekend hole locations looming, but he's 14 years of age. That he's now 2-for-2 in PGA TOUR starts is above the expectations of even the most hopeful of supporters. Tianlang has split 21 (of 28) fairways and hit 22 greens in regulation. He's wiped away five bogeys with eight birdies, including a zero-putt six-yarder from just off the green at the 16th hole today. It would be reckless to suggest that he has fantasy value, so just continue to enjoy the show.

Guan Tianlang has received a sponsor exemption into next week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

The 14-year-old from China placed 58th of 61 that survived the cut at the Masters. That may open the door for a number of opportunities to play on the PGA TOUR as tournaments would likely field considerable backlash if they burned a sponsor exemption on a golfer of his age. Despite his relative success at Augusta National, he is not a recommended fantasy investment.

Guan Tianlang signed for a 3-over-par 38-37=75 following his second round of the Masters.

The 14-year-old went 0-for-10 in birdie chances today and reached the midpoint in 4-over 148, but the news of the day is that he was assessed a one-stroke penalty for slow play on the par-4 17th hole, which he bogeyed. European Tour official John Paramor made the decision. UPDATE: reported that Tianlang's threesome that included two-time Masters champion Ben Crenshaw and Matteo Manassero were put on the clock on the par-3 12th hole. "I think our group was warned once that we were out of position," Crenshaw said. "This isn't going to end up pretty, I don't think. I'm sick. He's 14 years old. When you get the wind blowing out here, believe me you're going to change your mind. I'm sorry, I'm a player. It's not easy to get around this golf course." It took all 93 golfers to post for Tianlang's fate to be known, but he survived the cut on the number for sitting 10 strokes back of Jason Day's lead.

Guan Tianlang carded an impressive 1-over-par 38-35=73 in his opening round of the 77th Masters.

Everything is relative when a 14-year-old competes in the Masters, but the Asian-Pacific Amateur champ defied the critics today. He hit only eight greens in regulation and sufferend five bogeys but he worked in four birdies, including a 3 at the 18th hole. The low 50 plus ties and all golfers within 10 strokes of the 36-hole lead will survive the cut and play 72 holes. Tianlang is in position to be one of them.

Guan Tianlang hung on to record a one-stroke victory at the Asian-Pacific Amateur Championship at Amata Spring Country Club in Bangkok, Thailand.

The 14-year-old phenom from China entered the week ranked 490th in the World Amateur Golf Ranking [WAGR]. He then carded field-low scores of 66 and 64 in the first two rounds, respectively, to open a five-shot margin. After a third-round 72, he slept on a two-stroke bulge before today's finale. On Sunday, Tianlang traded four birdies with three bogeys to fend off a charging Cheng-Tsung Pan of Taiwan. Tseng, who ranks 12th in the WAGR, closed with a 7-under 65 that featured nine birdies. Alas, he closed with three straight pars to wind up one back of Tianlang, who goes in the books at 15-under 273. Tianlang earns an exemption into the 2013 Masters, where he is likely to become the youngest to ever compete in that tournament. Two-time defending champion of the Asian-Pacific Amateur, Hideki Matsuyama, finished alone in fourth place at 10-under 278.
