(Newser) – The first round of the Masters is in the books, with Australia's Marc Leishman and Spain's Sergio Garcia tied for the lead at 6-under, reports AP. But the big story line of Tiger Woods is very much alive—he's just four shots off the lead. Meanwhile, 14-year-old sensation Guan Tianlang of China became the youngest golf ever to compete at the Masters, and he didn't disappoint. He drained a long birdie putt on the 18th to finish 1-over—the best score of any amateur competing, reports SBNation. Guan is known for a superb short game, notes Bleacher Report, which has a profile.
