China's 12-Year-Old Ye Wocheng Set For European Masters
Chinese youngster Ye Wo-Cheng will play in the European Masters next month, being held in Switzerland.
The 12-year-old is among the entries for a tournament jointly sanctioned by the European and Asia tours.
Ye became the youngest player in European Tour history earlier this year when he competed in his own national open, and on that occasion he missed the cut after shooing two rounds of 79.
Meanwhile, fellow Chinese player Guan Tianlang made history at The Masters when he teed-up in the Major championship at the age of just 14.
The upcoming European Masters will be held at the Alpine course Crans-sur-Sierre from September 5-8.
