China's teenage golf sensation Guan Tianlang incurred the wrath of Masters officials on Friday, receiving a rare penalty that almost ended his amazing debut in the year's opening major.

Chinese schoolboy Guan Tianlang, the youngest player in Masters history, carded a first round of 73 today to lead the contest to finish top amateur at Augusta National.

"I was a little bit nervous on the first tee but after a great tee shot on the third everything felt comfortable," said Guan, who played nine holes of practice with Tiger Woods earlier this week.
"I just want to enjoy the tournament and have some fun and hopefully play some good shots."

The National Trust claimed that building a £100 million golf course near Giant's Causeway could have a serious impact on the UNESCO designated world heritage site.
