Rules are rules and without them, there is anarchy. I get that.
But sometimes, just sometimes, the rules can be bent, allowing for a little leniency. Last weekend at Augusta was one of those times.
For those of you not in tune with the tradition unlike any other, a 14-year-old kid from China named Tianlang Guan made his Masters debut. He was the youngest person to ever qualify, and more impressively make the cut, in golf’s most prestigious event. He dropped a cool 73 and 75 his opening rounds on the world’s most grueling course.
