Ye Wo-Cheng: 12-year-old to play European Tournament
Golf news: Chinese prodigy Ye Wo-Cheng set to become youngest player in European Tour history
Ye-Wo Cheng is only 12-years-old, but that hasn't stopped this Chinese youngster from being among the entries for a jointly sanctioned tournament by the European and Asian tours.
When I was 12, I was still riding my bike and enjoying the long summer holidays, but this sprightly youngster became the youngest player in European Tour history when he competed in his own national open earlier this year.
Unfortunately for him he missed the cut after shooting two rounds of 79, but hopes are high for a more successful coming tournament; and if all else fails, it shall definitely provide a massive, if not steep learning curve.
This is something I presume Ye Wo-Cheng would relish.
China obviously know how to do it when it comes to sport, and golf in particular, as another Chinese player Guan Tianlang, made history at The Masters in April this year, when he teed-up in the Major championship at the tender age of 14.
With Ye Wo-Cheng competing at the European Masters this year, he surely has a very bright future in the world of golf, and should be a name to watch out for.
The forthcoming Masters will be held at the Alpine course Crans-sur-Sierre from September 5th to the 8th.
With the legend that is Tiger Woods swinging superbly this year and recapturing his best form, you'd be remiss to not speaking of him - but it's certain that come September, this young golfer, Ye Wo-Cheng, will be the name on everyones lips.
