• GUAN SLIPS BACK AFTER EARLY BIRDIE BLITZ

    0

    HONG KONG: China’s teenage golf prodigy Guan Tianlang blew a sensational start to the Hong Kong Open on Thursday, collapsing to a one-over-par 71 after five early birdies. The 15-year-old amateur performed flawlessly in his opening 13 holes but was undone by three consecutive bogeys before a costly triple bogey on the ninth —the penultimate hole of his first round. Guan, who caused a stir at the US Masters this year when he became the youngest player to make the cut in a major, said he was disappointed with his finish but still confident for the rest of the tournament.
