14 year old golf phenom guan tianlang will play memorial tournament

Eat your heart out, Tiger Woods! There's a new kid on the block, and his name is Guan Tianlang!

Ok, we might be exaggerating a little bit here! But Guan is certainly turning heads as the amateur golfer recently made the cut for HUGE tournaments such as the Masters and the Zurich Classic!

As if these accomplishments weren't impressive enough on their own, what's really catching people's attention is that Guan is only 14 years-old!!!

Now the phenom has been hand-picked by golfing legend Jack Nicklaus to play in his annual Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio at the end of the month!

Tiger Woods Ties Jack Nicklaus With 73 PGA Tour Wins!

Filed under: Etc.Tiger WoodsGolf

Tiger Jack 73

It's incredible, first off, that Tiger Woods has won the Memorial Tournament five times.

He sealed the 5th win at Jack Nicklaus' hometown tournament… which is perfect, because that 5th victory wasn't the only thing to happen!

Tiger fittingly matched Jack's career total of 73 PGA Tour victories in the process!

Here's what Jack said:

“Well, he had to rub it in my face right here, didn't he?”

Ha!

Tiger had to get rid of a two-shot deficit over the final four holes by making three birdies. So it wasn't easy, but he pulled it off!

Here's what Tiger had to say:

“It was nice to see Jack there. He means a lot to all of us as players, and we all looked up to him, and he's the greatest champion that's ever lived.”

He beat Nicklaus to the 73-win mark by exactly 10 years and two days.

Wow!

Congrats, Tiger!
