Sterne joins Masters field



Swedes Henrik Stenson and Fredrik Jacobson and South Africa's Richard Sterne received official invitations to next week's Masters golf tournament on Monday.

The players qualified for the year's first major championship at Augusta National Golf Club by being among the top 50 in this week's world rankings.

American DA Points booked his second trip to the Masters with a victory on Sunday at the PGA Houston Open.

Stenson rose from 53rd to 42nd by sharing second at Houston. Jacobson is ranked 47th this week, two spots ahead of Sterne.

One last berth remains available to those not already in the field, but it will go to the winner of this wek's PGA Texas Open, provided that winner has not already qualified.

American Bubba Watson will defend his Masters crown when the world's top players gather next week at the famed layout.
