(Newser) – The two big story lines from the Masters continue to deliver:

  • Guan Tianlang: The 14-year-old from China, already the youngest player ever to tee off at the event, made the cut at 4-over. This despite the fact that he got penalized one stroke on the 17th for slow play. (It was windy, and he was taking his time choosing clubs.) The kid handled it with class afterward, however, and said he respected the decision, reports Bleacher Report.

  • Tiger Woods: He played well again and is just three shots off the lead at 3-under. Woods shot 1-under today in his bid to win his first major championship since 2008, reports AP. It could have been better: He bogied two of the last four holes.
  • Leaderboard: Australia's Jason Day leads everyone at 6-under, with Fred Couples and Marc Leishman (another Aussie) a shot behind. Angel Cabrera, Jim Furyk, and Brandt Snedeker are at 4-under, and Woods is tied with six others at 3-under.

Letting children play is the end of the Masters. It's lost all it's credibility. What if this kid had won. 14 years old and he's the best. It's rediculus. Where did this kid come from anyway? Some Chinese state funded golfing concentration camp. And everybody is being told that hate is bad. I hate the people that run the Masters and I'm not the only one. May they all drop dead tomorrow. Hate is good.

Saw "a tweet" about this from Joe Montana. he apparently doesn't understand the basic concept of twitter - 140 characters or less. He sent 6 tweets that entailed one long running comment. WindyJoe, why even use twitter?

Golf - the most useless "sport."
