Chinese golfer is youngest to ever compete on European Tour
Ye Wocheng will break Guan Tianlang's record of youngest golfer ever on European Tour this week.
Ye Wocheng will play in the European Tour's China Open this week after qualifying in mid-March. Guan Tianlang qualified for this same tournament last year as a 13-year-old, but Ye is still about four months shy of his 13th birthday.
Yes, he was born in 2000.
From that video above, he actually looks to be pretty big for his age. Part of me thinks he actually looks older than Guan and has a more mature swing. He's probably not as good (where were you at in Augusta, Ye?), but 12 years old and qualifying for European Tour events is certifiably absurd.
"Playing in a European Tour event will be a whole new experience for me so I'll be practicing very hard. I will also be doing some gym work to get stronger."
Ye will become the youngest golfer to ever compete at a European Tour event, breaking Guan's record from last year by about 10 months.
The youngest golfer to ever play a PGA Tour event was Don Dunkelberger, who was 11 at the 1937 Chicago Open.
