Thirteen players get Masters invites
Last updated: 19th December 2012
Thirteen more players have been added to the 2013 Masters field with Geoff Ogilvy just missing the cut.
Ogilvy tied for fourth in the Australian PGA Championship in the final week of official golf this year and the result helped him to finish the year at number 51 in the world - one place shy of an automatic spot.
The players who will be making it to Augusta National after finishing 2012 inside the top 50 are Paul Lawrie, Francesco Molinari, Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano, Branden Grace, Bill Haas, Nicolas Colsaerts, Jason Day, Hiroyuki Fujita, Matteo Manassero, Thomas Bjorn, Jamie Donaldson, George Coetzee and Thorbjorn Olesen.
Ogilvy and other players like Henrik Stenson (number 53) still have plenty of opportunities to qualify for the Masters though as victory at a regular PGA Tour event or anyone who gets into the top 50 after the Houston Open will secure an invitation.
The current field for the 2013 edition stands at 83 and officials are keen to keep that number below 100.
