Jason Day leads at the Masters, 14-year-old makes cut
AUGUSTA, Ga. — Jason Day is out front midway through the Masters.
Fortunately for Guan Tianlang, the leader didn’t sink one last putt Friday.
Guan, a 14-year-old from China, became the youngest player to make the cut in PGA Tour history, despite taking a one-stroke penalty on the 17th hole for slow play.
Apparently the first ruling of its kind in the Masters’ 77-year history, it gave the eighth-grader no margin for error if he wanted to play on the weekend.
