"I want to win the US Masters at Augusta"

Thanks to oober Werepuppie for the tip!
Remember Tianlang Guan, the junior golfer from China who became the youngest player ever to compete in an European Tour event at the age of 13? Well, he's since turned 14 and he's set to become the youngest player ever to compete in The Masters next spring.
Tianlang, who is the top ranked amateur in Asia, closed with a 1-under-par 71 to complete his wire-to-wire victory in the Asia-Pacific Amateur. His victory at Amata Springs Country Club earned him a spot in the first major of 2013. Tianlang will replace Matteo Manassero as the youngest player ever to walk the fairways of Augusta National with the best next April.
And the best part is he doesn't just want to compete — he wants to win his own green jacket! Following his victory at the Asia-Pacific Amateur, Tianlang tweeted, "I want to win the US Masters at Augusta". Lofty goals for a youngster who is barely a teenager! But I'll definitely be watching to see if he can set anymore records.

having clear goals is the first step.
Good luck young padawan.
Scott Shields says:
He's almost too young to realize how special it is what he's about to do. Lucky for him it probably won't be his last.
he's not big off the tee either. i just hope this kid will be able to break 80.
I don't care how good he is at 14, he's 14! Even Tiger Woods didn't have a prayer at 14, or 15, or 16, or 17, or...well maybe 18. But he was Tiger Woods. Nope, not gonna happen. It would be a huge story, even if he makes the cut, which I will bet anyone, right here, right now, that he won't. Say 50 bucks? Anyone?
