Chinese 14-year-old will tee it up in Memorial

DUBLIN, Ohio — Fourteen-year-old golf sensation Guan Tianlang will play in the Memorial Tournament next week.

The Chinese amateur has accepted an exemption for the event at Muirfield Village. Memorial founder and host Jack Nicklaus met with Guan’s parents at the Masters and has said he hoped the phenom might play at his tournament, which runs from May 30 to June 2.

Last month, Guan became the youngest player to make the cut in a major championship when he finished 58th at the Masters. He also made the cut at the PGA Tour stop in New Orleans but missed weekend play at last week’s Byron Nelson.
