Liang Wenchong will not be the only Chinese participant in this week's British Open. Taylor Li Jinliang, the chief referee on the Omega China Tour, will also be part of the action at Turnberry when he becomes the first mainlander to officiate at one of golf's four majors. 'When I received the invitation letter from the R&A [The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews], I felt great because this was the first time a Chinese referee had received an invitation to officiate at a major. It's my honour to be that person and I believe this will prove a milestone in Chinese golf history,' said the Beijing-based 37-year-old. 'I feel more excited than nervous, as I've had some experience in big tournaments, such as the HSBC Champions and the Omega Mission Hills World Cup and so on,' added Li, who has officiated in many other Asian Tour and European Tour events. 'There will be a little bit of extra pressure at the Open, especially if there are TV cameras over my head and lots of spectators around, so I'll need to stay clear-headed.'
