Golf: Jgto Money Champ Fujita Earns Masters Berth

Golf: JGTO Money champ Fujita earns Masters berthJapan's Hiroyuki Fujita booked his ticket Monday to next year's Masters by finishing in the top 50 in this year's final rankings.


The 43-year-old JGTO money winner has not been to the Masters since missing the cut there in 2011. This year, Fujita tied for 51st at the U.S. Open, but missed the cut at the British Open and the U.S. PGA Championship.

Countryman Ryo Ishikawa, who remained at 75th in the world, unchanged from the week before, is in danger of missing the tournament for the first time after playing in the previous four editions at Augusta National Golf Club.

To make it to Augusta, Ishikawa will need to be ranked in the top 50 or win on the PGA tour in the week prior to the April 11-14 event.
