Guan Tianlang, 14, qualifies for US Masters

China's Guan Tianlang is set to become the youngest male to play in a major championship, after winning an invitation to the Masters with a wire-to-wire victory in the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship.

Closing on a 1-under 71 on Sunday, Guan will be 14 years, 5 months old when he takes part in the 2013 Masters, a month younger than compatriot Andy Zhang was when he took part in last Summer's U.S. Open.

"I'm really excited about it," Guan said. "I will be training maybe a little bit harder and got some more power for that because I'm still growing right now. So it will be great fun."

Guan's first two round were resounding 66 and 64 which helped him build a five-shot lead, although he had a few hiccups on the final round which left him winning by just a single stroke. Augusta on his mind?

"I think about it a little bit at the last hole, but I'm trying not to get it in my mind," Guan said, referring to the Masters invitation. "So just want to focus on my game. I got a little bit nervous on the last putt because that's the winning putt. But I just do my own routine and everything is good."

"I'm so excited," Guan said. "I'm really happy to become the youngest player at the Masters and looking forward to going there. I don't know what's going to happen there, but I know I just want to do well."
