    SHENZHEN, China: China’s most decorated golfer Liang Wenchong says it could be a decade before a Chinese player breaks into the top ranks of the game but he’s certain it will happen. At the Volvo China Open that finished on Sunday, just five out of 32 home hopefuls made the cut despite the Genzon Golf Club in Shenzhen pulling out all the stops to promote the success of local talent. One of those to miss out was China’s great hope, Masters sensation Guan Tianlang, who made the cut at Augusta last year aged just 14 years and five months. The host of China’s 20th national championship offered to double the purse of any Chinese who finished in the top five and over the past three months let home entrants play the course for free.
