Joe Ogilvie's disappointment at not winning the Honda Classic on Sunday could be offset by an invitation to the Masters Tournament.
With a $484,000 runner-up check, Ogilvie vaulted into the top 10 on the PGA Tour money list. The Masters will let the top 10 players on the current PGA Tour money list and the top 50 in the Official World Golf Ranking, who are not otherwise eligible, into the April 7-10 event.
Others in striking range to get into the tournament via the money list are Kevin Na (11), Tim Clark (13) and Geoff Ogilvy (17).
In the rankings, Clark (28), Craig Parry (34), Tom Lehman (37) and Richard Green (48) are all in position for the year's first major. Those on the bubble include Graeme McDowell (52), Ogilvy (53) and Colin Montgomerie (54).
The criteria applies to the money list and ranking published March 28.
