The Compendious List Of People Guan Tianlang Has Golfed With Includes Phil Mickelson, Condoleeza Rice

Guan Tianlang's Twitter

Chinese golf prodigy Guan Tianlang, 14, is set to become the youngest player ever to play at the Masters — he tees off on Thursday at 12:24 pm Georgia time. But the youngster has already been busy on the links at Augusta, it appears. Behold, his Twitter account, @Guan_Tianlang (we can safely call it “under the radar,” with only 199 followers). His five tweets — including his first on April 3 — have been more or less what you’d expect out of a golf savant who’s spent most of his life absorbed with this game. We also get a glimpse of Guan as 14-year-old: humble, wide-eyed, possibly a little starstruck, but also trying to act like a competitor.

Here, in chronological order, Guan’s first five tweets:

Enjoy Twitter, Tianlang. You won’t be able to access it once you return to China*.

*Unless he gets a VPN, but we think he’ll be too preoccupied with golf to bother.
