Teenager Guan makes Masters cut

  • China's Tianlang Guan became the youngest player to make cut at a major championship on Friday at Augusta.

    The 14-year-old overcame a controversial slow play penalty to qualify for the 77th Masters after he shot a three-over 75 to leave him four-over for the tournament.

    Guan was penalized on the 17th hole after failing to heed the warnings given by referee John Paramor.

    He is the first player to be punished for slow play in a major since Gregory Bourdy of France at the 2010 PGA Championship

    At 14 years and five months, Guan breaks the record held by Italy's Matteo Manassero.

    Manassero made history at the British Open at the age of 16 years and two months.
