Teenage golfer Guan fires 69 in Zurich Classic

Washington, April 27 (IANS) Chinese sensation Guan Tianlang, just 14 years old, fired a 69 in the par-72 USPGA Tour Zurich Classic after a lacklustre first round the day before.

The teenage golfer scored five birdies and two bogeys in his second round effort Friday, reports Xinhua.

His three-under-par total of 141, with an even-par opening round, was nine shots off leader Lucas Glover but within the projected cut line of two-under.

“I think I played a very good round today,” said the amateur. “I made a lot of birdies and a couple of good up and downs. So I think…I made the cut.”

Guan made his fame at the Augusta Nationals two weeks ago when he became the youngest player ever to compete in the Masters and earned Low Amateur honours by shooting a final-round 75 for a 12-over total of 300.
