Russell Henley wins to take last Masters place Houston Open


Monday, 3 April 2017 :  America’s Russell Henley clinched the final place at this week’s Masters in Augusta after a three-shot victory at the Houston Open.

Henley, 27, who hails from Macon in Georgia began the day four shots behind overnight leader Sung Kang of Korea.

But he shot a seven-under par final round, including 10 birdies for a third PGA Tour win.

England’s Justin Rose and Andy Sullivan both finished on seven under in a tie for 15th.

The Masters begins on Thursday with Henley appearing at the event for the fourth time.

 

Three consecutive birdies from the 13th gave him the key advantage and even a bogey at the final hole could not spoil the day as Kang failed to find a birdie on the back nine.
