Fourteen year-old Chinese golf sensation Guan Tianlang continues to make history at the 77th Masters Tournament in Augusta, Georgia.

Despite being penalized one stroke for playing too slowly, Guan made the cut after Friday's second round by a one shot.

The teen had to wait an agonizing five hours before finding out that he played well enough to continue.

Guan moves into the Saturday's third round tied for 55th place, with a four-over-par and a score of 148.

Guan is the youngest player to continue to play the final two rounds in the history of the Masters, the United States' most prestigious golf tournament.

Australia's Jason Day goes into Saturday's round as the tournament leader with a six-under-par and a 138. Fellow Australian Fred Couples tied for second, is one stroke behind the leader.

Tiger Woods is tied for seventh, three strokes back.
