US Masters: List of players

It's the smallest field of any major in golf, and perhaps therefore the hardest to qualify for.

Numerous golfers who've competed for years on the PGA TOUR go their whole careers without ever getting the chance to play at the prestigious Augusta National Golf Club.

The first and perhaps best known criteria is that everyone who wins the US Masters automatically receives a lifetime invitation. Jack Nicklaus made his last Masters appearance aged 65, Tom Watson was a year older at 66, and Gary Player remarkably played on until he was 73 years old, despite the demanding physical test Augusta National poses.

The last five winners of the other three majors also receive invitations as do the last three winners of THE PLAYERS Championship.

Anybody who won a PGA TOUR event between the last Masters and the next Masters receives an invite, however this needs to carry a full-point allocation towards the FedEx Cup, which excludes a number of events from the wraparound season and events opposite other bigger tournaments, such as the Corales Puntacana Championship, played on the same week as the WGC Match Play. 

Interestingly, Justin Rose will only receive an invite this year after his unlikely win at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am, extending his run of consecutive appearances to 13.

At its discretion, Augusta National can also hand out special invites to players not otherwise exempt, which it's done with leading Japanese player Kazuki Higa, and NCAA champion Gordon Sargent, who'll tee it up alongside other selected amateur champions.

Other qualifying criteria include:

• The top 12 from last year's Masters
• The top four from last year's other three majors
• All players who qualified for the 2022 Tour Championship
• The top 50 in the OWGR as of the end of 2022 and as of the second Monday before the US Masters
