Howell is Masters bound

Augusta native Charles Howell III headlines a group of seven players who earned an invite by virtue of their play so far this season.

The criteria: a spot in the top 10 on the PGA Tour money list or the top 50 in the world golf rankings.

Howell started the season 86th in the world, but thanks to five top 10 finishes, including a win at the Nissan Open, Howell has shot up to 15th in the rankings and 3rd on the money list.

The other players receiving late invites are Mark Calcavecchia, John Rollins, Aaron Baddeley, Justin Rose, Bart Bryant, and Paul Goydos.

That brings the final field list to 107 golfers, with 97 expected to tee it up. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
