AUGUSTA, Ga. -- It has been a rollercoaster start for 14-year-old Guan Tianlang, the amateur from China who is the youngest player in major championship history.

Guan started his opening round at the Masters with a bogey at the par-4 first. He then parred the par-5 second. At the par-4 third, he produced a huge roar from the crowd with a birdie, which gets him back to even par on his round.

Guan is playing with another teenager, 19-year-old Matteo Manassero, and 61-year-old Ben Crenshaw, a two-time Masters champ. Guan qualified for the Masters by winning the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship.
