Guan Tianlang will play in the European Tour’s Hong Kong Open, Dec. 5-8 at Hong Kong Golf Club in Fanling.

The 15-year-old will not make a return trip to Augusta in April after he was unable to defend his title at the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship. He finished in a tie for eighth.

Guan became the youngest player to make the cut in a major at 14 years old.

In a statement, Guan said, “This year has just been an incredible journey for me. Making the cut at the Masters was a very special achievement for me, and I hope to be able to produce a similar performance at the Hong Kong Golf Club in December.”
