AUGUSTA, Ga. — Guan Tianlang put off his homework for a few hours, grabbed the snack his mom had made and went out to play with his friends.
His playground was Augusta National and the world had tuned in to watch the 14-year-old from China, the youngest player ever to tee it up at the Masters and youngest at any major in 148 years.
That’s some play date.
“I felt a little bit nervous on the first tee,” Guan said. “But I hit a great tee shot and, after that, everything feels comfortable. ... I just had fun today. Pretty much fun.”
