At some point after he won the 1986 Masters, Jack Nicklaus lost two major championships. He's just not sure when.
There was a time when a 14-year-old on the PGA Tour would be considered big news.
Guan Tianlang will surely remember his first trip to the Masters.
A list of how teenagers have fared on the PGA Tour:
History is one of Guan Tianlang's favorite subjects in school.
Guan Tianlang, the14-year-old Chinese golfer and the youngest competitor to ever play in the Masters, was assessed a one-stroke penalty for slow play in Friday's second round. The Masters follows the Rules of Golf as written by the U.S. Golf Association and the Royal & Ancient. Like all tournament committees the Masters can supplement those with local rules. Below is the Masters' statement on Guan's penalty:
Guan Tianlang didn't need the school books he brought to America to learn two important life lessons in the Masters.
Guan Tianlang, the 14-year-old Chinese golfer who added some buzz to this year's Masters, was hit with a one-stroke penalty for slow play during Friday's second round, hurting his chances of making the cut.

It's small consolation, but hardcore Tiger Woods fans who can't make it to the Masters for Thursday's opening round can at least take the morning off.
Notable pairings include Tiger Woods with Luke Donald and Scott Piercy at 10:45 a.m., and 2012 Masters champion Bubba Watson with Ian Poulter and Steven Fox at 10:34.

Geoff Ogilvy came within one stroke of not having to spend the next three months thinking about the Masters.
"I want to be comfortable in the top 50 in the world," Manassero said at the Masters. "That gives you more chances to be invited to tournaments. And it would have to be a year in which you start well and then can play more."
"When the caddie pulls the club for him, I think he's ready. But he just sometimes _ most of the times _ he takes a little too long. He just asks questions that I think he knows, just to be sure, just to be clear in his mind," Manassero said. "If I would have took more time on 16, I probably would have saved two shots, as well."
