HONG KONG (AFP) - China's teenage golf star Guan Tianlang is upbeat on replicating his success at the US Masters by making the cut at the Hong Kong Open this week.

The Guangzhou schoolboy caused a stir at Augusta in April when, aged just 14 years, five months and 18 days, he became the youngest to make the weekend at a major tournament.

He followed up by making the final two rounds of the US PGA Tour's Zurich Classic in New Orleans a fortnight later.

Now, aged 15, he is expecting to play all 72 holes in his first appearance at the Hong Kong Open, which is co-sanctioned by the European Tour and Asian Tour.

"I'm going to enjoy the week and shoot some low scores," he told reporters.

"I don't feel the pressure at all as I'm still doing the things that I've been doing and I feel comfortable. I've not set any targets for myself but if I can put four good rounds together, I'll be happy," he added.
