Fore! Golf is catching on in China

As Adam Scott and Angel Cabrera captivated fans at this year’s Masters Tournament, a young golfer with far less experience also made headlines. Tianlang Guan, 14, was the youngest player ever to compete in the Masters. Despite finishing near the bottom of the pack with a 12-over par, the Chinese teen impressed fellow competitors and galleries. For a country with a relatively brief history in golf, his success may represent a new direction for the sport in China. There are more than 300 golf courses in China, and more are being built each year.
