According to Fox News, a 14-year-old golfer named Andy Zhang will be competing for a shot at this year's US 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 since 15-year-old Hawaiian named Tadd Fujikawa made the cut in 2006, according to USGA.

Zhang will play alongside with Hiroyuki Fujita and Mark Wilson for the first two rounds. This is some big news for the Olympic Club at San Francisco.

Zhang will join 18-year-old from the University of Teas named Jordan Spieth and as one of the youngest golfers in the championship. The Longhorm in Spieth replaces Brandt Snedeker after a rib injury.

Congrats to both of you guys!
