Ok.. Somebody gotta start..

For 14 year old.. Nobody knows anything about this kid..

Why not, after Day 1, he is +1...

Somebody has his Stats?

Like how far he drives and hit his irons etc?

Who are his sponsors etc??

Let's do a wiki of him here in GR... Laughing

Think he averages around 250 yards with his drives
But according to media reports he is dead accurate with hybrids
He even made birdies
According to Ben Crenshaw who played with him, his soft touches around the greens was his saving grace

Well done. When he grows up and bulk up, we see how his game is like then
Now he is work in progress...

I was amazed! +1 for an amateur is not easy. Let's hope he keeps up his form. The Masters is not just about playing well but having a steady and solid mental game. That's where winners are separated from everyone else.

250 yards ??? That's all ???

Even I play longer !! (Back wind gushing, downslope, hits buggy path and bounces off somebody's head)

What's his hybrids combo ?

Too young too sign as we never know what could happen to his focus or injuries . but he has already a great swing and short game . The next 4 -6 year are crucial to play as much pro event and hit the gym . then we see if he is the next rory or tiger woods. he still not the number 1 amateur , i think sponsor might wait he crack up the top 10 amateur ranking to sponsor him as equipment based. you can't earn money when an amateur except by the back door .

Hope he makes the cut.

The kid was penalized 1 stroke for slow play

Now he completed his round at +4, this is just at the cut line projected... On the bubble!

Watch "Guan Tianlang driver swing" on YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_hvVimNyD5I

One of the comments under the YouTube video here is that he has a very flat swing plane, and that is good. Why is a flat swing plane good? I thought it should be relative to your body angle?

Found some info!http://www.advancedballstriking.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=72

Hopefully the penalty will not disturb his mind.

@Graeme_McDowell: What message are we trying to send out to the world giving the 14 yr old kid a shot penalty today? It was a 6 hr round. Why single him out?

The way he handles questions from Tom Rinaldi hints at maturity way beyond his years - to-the-point, adds his personal view, and is non-committal on everything else.

He already sounds like some young prodigy who made it to number one not long ago.

Probably it is because he is Chinese playing on American soil?? Somehow, they have to find something to make it you ain't so good after all. If not, why him? Many golfers were taking more than 45 secs too..

He will learn along the way as he prepare to enter the world as a professional golf. He has potential. Hope he will not end up like Michelle Wie when she was promoted as a teenage golf prodigy and compared with TW.

+10.

She's a joke. From dangling ear rings to red hair to her latest putting stance....

I'm just waiting for her to play with her high heels.. That'll be historical !

Remember Anna Kournikova the so-called tennis star who turned pro in 1995 and and retired in 2007.
