After making the cut and finishing as low amateur at the Masters tournament, 14-year-old Chinese golf sensation Tianlang Guan is going to try his luck in a regular PGA Tour event.
Guan has accepted a sponsor's exemption to play the Zurich Classic, which begins April 25 at TPC Louisiana in Avondale, outside New Orleans, according to NOLA.com.
Tianlang Guan, the 14-year-old from China who thanks to a remarkable display of poise and shot-making was the low amateur at the Masters on Sunday, has accepted a sponsor's exemption to the 2013 Zurich Classic of New Orleans.
“The Fore!Kids Foundation, host organization of the Zurich Classic, is all about benefiting youth,” said Steve Worthy, CEO of the Fore!Kids Foundation, whose group puts on the Zurich Classic. “Tianlang Guan represents the aspirations of millions of young golfers and golf fans of all ages worldwide.”
