Tianlang Guan, the Masters sensation, will play in next week's Zurich Classic after receiving a sponsor's invite.

The 14-year-old, who became the youngest player ever to make the cut at Augusta National last week, accepted the opportunity to play in the PGA Tour event, tournament organisers confirmed.

On Sunday, the Chinese admitted that he had received a few offers from tournament organisers to come and play in their professional events, on the back of his headline-making exploits in Georgia.

"I'm not sure right now [of my plans], because before the Masters, we are probably going back next week," Guan said on Sunday. "But we have had a couple invitations for me. So we have to consider what to play, what not [to play]."

He added: "It's not easy to play here, to make the cut and be low amateur. I think I did a pretty good job this week and can't believe it's over."
