The men's top golfers will be teeing it up later this week for the season's first major -- the Masters.

Most of the attention will be on the big three of Jason Day, Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy as that trio continue to fight for the world's top ranking. But there are plenty of other storylines available at Augusta National, including the major debut of Jin Cheng.

The 18-year-old earned his spot in the exclusive field by winning the 2015 Asia-Pacific Amateur. The course can be pretty intimidating, due its place in golfing history, but the youngster seemed comfortable during his practice round.

Jin is just the fourth Chinese golfer to earn a spot in golf's first major -- and as you can imagine, he is giddy.

He said:" well it's definitely a huge achievement for me. And it's like a dream that came true. I think Augusta's the dream of every golfer, and thinking that I'm going to stand here and play Masters...yeah."
