Stenson plays his way into the Masters
HUMBLE, Texas (AP) - One way or another, Henrik Stenson is going to the Masters.
Stenson needed to finish at least in 13th place alone Sunday in the Houston Open. He closed with a 6-under 66 for the clubhouse lead, assuring that he will be in the top 50 in the world at the end of the week.
On the other side of the Atlantic, Marcel Siem of Germany won the Hassan Trophy in Morocco. That moved him to the cusp of the top 50, but he fell short when Russell Henley closed with a 68 to tie for 45th in the Houston Open. Henley had already qualified for the Masters by winning the Sony Open.
Fredrik Jacobson and Richard Sterne also are added to the Masters field by staying in the top 50.
