Chinese teenager Tianlang Guan will play in next week’s U.S. PGA Tour event in New Orleans after accepting a sponsor’s invitation, officials said.

Guan, a 14-year-old amateur, became the youngest player to appear in a major golf championship in 148 years at last week’s Masters Tournament. He was invited to play in the New Orleans event by sponsor Zurich Insurance Group, the PGA Tour said in a statement.

An eighth-grade student, Guan was the only one of six amateurs to make the 36-hole cut and advance to the final two rounds at Augusta National Golf Club. He shot 3-over 75 in the final round to finish 12-over par for the tournament.

Guan qualified for the Masters by winning the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship in November, where he was the youngest player in the field.

In the tournament’s second round, Guan was assessed a one-stroke penalty on the course’s 17th hole for slow play. The penalty left him at 4 over par. He made the cut only When second-round leader Jason Day missed a birdie putt at the 18th hole to remain at 6 under, leaving Guan within 10 shots of the lead.
