CRANS-MONTANA, Switzerland (AP) – Twelve-year-old golfer Ye Wocheng of China is set to play at the European Masters in September.

Tournament organizers say he has been accepted for the Sept. 5-8 event in the Swiss Alps, which is jointly sanctioned by the European and Asian tours.

Ye became the youngest player in a European Tour event after qualifying for the China Open in May. He missed the cut after shooting two rounds of 79.

Ye's record-setting appearance followed weeks after Chinese golfer Guan Tianlang made history at The Masters by playing at age 14.
