Guan Tian-lang, Youngest Player in European Tour History
By mustang6560 on 4/17/12
Guan Tian-lang, a 13-year-old teenager from China, is set to become the youngest golfer to ever play in an European Tour event Thursday in the Volvo China Open.
Guan Tian-lang will make history this week when he tees off in the 18th Volvo China Open at Tianjin Binhai Lake Golf Club as the youngest player to compete in a European Tour event, aged 13 years and 173 days.

Guan, the current World Junior Champion for his age group, will beat the record of Lo Shik-kai, who was 13 years and 280 days in the 2003 Hong Kong Open.
The teenager may be the youngest player in the field and he'll be competing against the likes of Paul Casey, Ian Poulter, Peter Hanson, Ross Fisher, and Edoardo and Francesco Molinari, but it doesn't mean he's not confident in his game.
“My goal now is to be the youngest player ever to make the cut in a European Tour event, and I think if I can shoot level par or better I’ll have a good chance to do that.”
I know it's a little premature, but Gian may be the next Tiger Woods.
