Chinese golf prodigy dreams of legendary 'grand slam'

- +

China's 14-year-old prodigy Guan Tianlang has set his sights sky-high by aiming to become the first player to claim golf's legendary 'grand slam': winning all four majors in the same year. 

This handout photo taken and received by the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship (ACC) shows Chinese golf prodigy Guan Tianlang hitting a shot at the Amata Spring Country Club in Chonburi, on November 3, 2012. Guan has set his sights sky-high by aiming to become the first player to claim golf's legendary 'grand slam': winning all four majors in the same year.

Guan will next month become the youngest golfer to compete in the US Masters -- the first of the season's most prestigious tournaments -- when he tees off at Augusta National aged just 14 years, five months and 17 days.
