Euro stars secure Masters berths

Home

England’s Ross Fisher is among 12 players who have secured places in next April’s Masters.

England’s Ross Fisher, Italian brothers Francesco and Edoardo Molinari, Spaniard Alvaro Quiros and Swedes Peter Hanson and Robert Karlsson are among 12 players who have secured places in next April’s Masters by finishing the year in the world’s top 50.
The other six are American Sean O’Hair, Japanese trio Ryo Ishikawa, Yuta Ikeda and Hiroyuki Fujita, Korean Kim Kyung-tae and South African Charl Schwartzel.
Ernie Els’s South African Open victory on Sunday did not change his 12th position on the rankings, but runner-up Retief Goosen is up two to 15th.
Because there are no events next week the two final ranking lists for 2010 have both been issued on Sunday night.
