Whoa 14 year old Chinese teenager Andy Zhang youngest U.S. Open competitor ever, next Tiger Woods?

 

 

Zhang rocketed into the spotlight Monday night when he became the youngest competitor in the United States Open, according to the United States Golf Association. A second alternate at the start of the day, he was added to the 156-man field to replace Paul Casey, who withdrew with a bad shoulder after Brandt Snedeker scratched because of an injured rib.

About neaat

The NETWORK OF ENTERTAINING ASIAN AMERICAN TALENT ORG is an independent site for information on Asian American Arts, Talent, Culture, and Entertainment. NEAATO started as a myspace page under http://www.myspace.com/asianamericannetwork and also a blog in 2007 (http://www.neaat.wordpress.com/) by Donnytello Tran. The idea was made when we noticed our friends on Myspace were posting more information about their work online through bulletins instead of waiting to get published in magazines or an Asian American Blog. We decided to put all these ‘posts’ together and share it with anyone that was interested and NEAATO was born. The current NEAATO blog site is http://www.neaato.com/. NEAATO was inspired by Bruce Lee’s quote: “"To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.”
