Today's Big Winner: Guan Tianlang
There are winners, and then there are sensations so remarkable that they instantly take a premium place of fascination. A few weeks ago, Florida Gulf Coast set a pretty high bar.
And yet you would be hard-pressed to find a bigger one than Guan, the 14-year-old whose ground-breaking Masters debut on Thursday ended with him right on the cut line.
A 14-year-old... on the cut line... at The Masters.
Maybe he falls apart today. Maybe he doesn't make the cut. Maybe Tiger wins on Sunday.
It won't eclipse the showing yesterday from Guan. Alone on the world's most prestigious course, competing with the world's best golfers, with everyone in the world -- or so it felt -- looking at him, Guan delivered.
For novelty, poise and the kind of chutzpah that comes with youth, Guan has already won The Masters.
