14-year-old to make US Open history
Andy Zhang walked over to the driving range as just another teenager seeking an autograph from his favorite players, and instead had the gallery at The Olympic Club asking for his signature.
Welcome to the US Open, kid.
All of 14 years old, Zhang is believed to be the youngest player in championship history. He was born in China and has lived in Florida since 2008, and about the only place he doesn't show his age is on the course.
Zhang held his own in a practice round on Tuesday with Masters champion Bubba Watson and Aaron Baddeley. After shedding some early nerves, Zhang's smile - behind those big braces, of course - lit up the gallery and had everyone from Tiger Woods to Rory McIlroy wondering the same question.
