Mark Wilson, Jhonattan Vegas and D.A. Points will be making their US Masters debuts this year as a result of their PGA Tour wins and Jonathan Byrd and Aaron Baddeley have both qualified for return trips to Augusta National as a result of their victories at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions and Northern Trust Open, respectively.
Now, just five tournaments remain before the US Masters for winners to get their invitation to play at the famous Augusta National.
There are 19 qualification categories for the first Major of the season, plus a 20th that allows the Masters Committee, at its discretion, to invite international players not otherwise qualified.
These qualifications include winning various tournaments, both in the professional and amateur ranks, and also high finishes in Majors, on the PGA Tour money list and in the Official World Golf Ranking.
The main category is the 50 leaders on the Official World Golf Ranking published during the week before the current Masters – at the conclusion of the Arnold Palmer Invitational on March 27.
