(USA TODAY) -- Guan Tianlang's first Masters doesn't look like it will be his last.

The 14-year-old from China, the youngest competitor ever at the Masters, shot a final-round 75 Sunday and finished at 12 over par overall.

Guan wins the Silver Cup as low amateur - he was the only non-pro to make the weekend - which means he will join the tournament winner in Butler Cabin at the end of the Masters.

The youngster impressed competitors and fans alike with his poise and game, particularly his short game.

"The whole week was great for me," Guan said. "I really enjoyed it and had fun."

Next up for Guan? School. He says he's got some studying to do, including math, science, history and English.
