ASIA-PACIFIC AMATEUR

BANGKOK (AP) _ Guan Tianlang of China is one round away from becoming the first 14-year-old to play in the Masters.

Guan overcame some early nerves and a difficult course at Amata Spring with a par 72 to take a two-shot lead over Oliver Goss of Australia going into the final day of the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship.

The winner gets an invitation to play in the Masters, along with an exemption to the final stage of qualifying for the British Open. The youngest competitor in Masters history was Matteo Manassero of Italy, who was 16 in 2010.

Guan had a 14-under 202 total. Goss shot a 69.
