China's Guan fires 73 in historic Masters debut

- +

Chinese 14-year-old schoolboy Guan Tianlang turned his historic first round at the 77th Masters into one for the ages, firing a one-over par 73 to stand as the low amateur player. 

Guan Tianlang of China is pictured during the first round of the 77th Masters golf tournament at Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia, the US, on April 11, 2013. Guan fired a one-over par 73 in a historic Masters debut, making himself the low amateur player in the field.

When he nervously teed off straight up the middle of the first fairway on Thursday, Guan became the youngest player in Masters history, breaking the previous youth age mark set by Italy's Matteo Manassero at 16 in 2010.
