Here's a slo-mo shot of the golf swing of 14-year-old Tianlang Guan. It's really good (this should be obvious by now) and looks pretty repeatable. The only thing that I worry about is how much it will change by the time he's, say, 17, or even 27. How much will getting older and stronger affect him?

His swing is also super flat. Makes Matt Kuchar's look steep by comparison. I'll be fascinated to see how this kid progresses and how he generally affects the game of golf in China.

It has been great to watch him play and make his first two cuts on the PGA Tour. My favorite stat from this week is about how Tiger Woods didn't make a cut until his eighth try on Tour and Guan is now 2-for-2. Phenomenal stuff.
