Chinese amateur golfer Guan Tianlang believes that his performance at this year's Masters will inspire the young hopefuls in his homeland.

The 14-year-old, who became the youngest player to make the cut at a Major, finished the tournament at Augusta National 12-over par.

"I think it will invite more young kids in China to start playing golf and it's really helpful," BBC Sport quotes Guan as saying. "I look forward to it."

While the teen made history by becoming the youngest competitor at the prestigious tournament, Adam Scott put his name in the record books by becoming the first Australian to win the green jacket.
