With the first major of the season just around the corner anticipation is high for the first glimpse of Augusta National. 100 lucky golfers have received their invites to be in the 2019 Masters field and walk the hallowed turf in Georgia.

Despite the invites being sent out, the field is set to be one of the smallest in decades with only 86 players accepting their invites to play. All past champions who are still alive are invited and 13 have already declined their invite to play.

Corey Conners took the final spot at the 2019 Valero Texas Open with his dominant display at TPC San Antonio.
