Guan will make the cut at the Zurich Classic.

Chinese sensation Guan Tianlang, just 14 years old, fired 69 on Friday in the par-72 USPGA Tour Zurich Classic after a lackluster first round the day before.

The teenage golfer scored five birdies and two bogeys in his second round effort.

His three-under-par total of 141, with an even-par opening round, was nine shots off leader Lucas Glover but within the projected cut line of two-under.

"I think I played a very good round today," said the amateur. "I made a lot of birdies and a couple of good up and downs. So I think...I made the cut."

Guan made his fame at Augusta National two weeks ago when he became the youngest player ever to compete in the Masters and earned Low Amateur honors by shooting a final-round 75 for a 12-over total of 300.
