AUGUSTA, Ga. – A day after 14-year-old Tianlang Guan was the biggest story at the Masters, he went virtually unnoticed because his idol Tiger Woods was embroiled in a rules fiasco.

Guan was penalized a shot for slow play Friday and still made the cut, assuring the youngest player in Masters history a trip to the weekend.

On Saturday, Guan made five bogeys and shot 5-over 77 to stand at 9-over total. Phil Mickelson is 8 over. Keegan Bradley is 12 over.

“It’s great for me and I think I had a pretty good run in the first two days, and today feels pretty good, not badly,” Guan said. “I did a couple unlucky, but that’s golf.”

As the only amateur to make the cut, Guan is guaranteed a trip to the Butler Cabin Sunday afternoon as the tournament’s low amateur.

Guan said later that he’d attempt to qualify for the U.S. Open if his schedule allows.
