Fourteen-year-old Guan Tianlang has wrapped up a memorable first Masters by shooting a 3-over 75 in the final round.

The Chinese eighth-grader made a couple of birdies on the back side Sunday. At the final hole, he two-putted from about 40 feet for a 12-over 300 total, receiving a big cheer from the gallery.

Guan can't take any prize money since he's an amateur. But he'll get a silver cup as the only amateur to make the cut.

The youngster was amazingly consistent over four rounds. He had no three-putts on Augusta's tricky greens, and didn't have any holes worse than a bogey.

Despite a one-shot penalty for slow play on Friday, Guan became the youngest player to make the cut at a major in the PGA Tour era.
