The odds of that happening are the same as me getting a chance to play there.

...did they actually play at that yardage??  

if they did then he just may do well in augusta as it is listed at less than that...but then many of the drives require a long carry and have little roll..

Guan was a quarterfinalist at this year's US Amateur and last November he was the youngest winner of China's Amateur Open. Usually it's the LPGA you has the really young prodigies as women mature much more quickly.
Hey...be nice.

this kid has crazy short game and putting, he was what -14 on a 7300+ course so even if he cant reach some of the holes he should just about manage to put together a decent score hopefully as long as his short game and putting is as good as what it was at the asian am... but man he is good
