| by

According to Fox News, a 14-year-old golfer named Andy Zhang will be competing at this year's U.S. Open Championship. Zhang is from China and will fill in for 34-year-old Paul Casey, who withdrew due to a shoulder injury.

Zhang will be the youngest golfer in the championship's history, one-upping a 15-year-old Hawaiian youngster named Tadd Fujikawa made the cut in 2006.

Zhang will play alongside with Hiroyuki Fujita and Mark Wilson for the first two rounds.
