Shingo Katayama earns special Masters invitation

Augusta National has awarded a special invitation to Shingo Kayatama, bringing the Masters field to 96 players.

It was the second straight year Augusta has given a special invitation, which it reserves for foreign-born players. Lian-Wei Zhang last year became the first player from China to compete in the Masters.

Katayama, who finished first on the Japan Golf Tour money list and won twice, will be playing the Masters for the fourth time.

The cutoff to qualify for the Masters is after The Players Championship at the end of March.
