Can Rickie Fowler, others still qualify to play in the 2023 Masters? Yes, and here’s how

With just over three weeks until the Masters, players have few opportunities left to qualify for a tournament invitation.

Currently, 84 players have earned invitations via various qualifying criteria set by Augusta National Golf Club.

There are still three ways to get into the season’s first major.

How can golfers still get a Masters invite?

Those not currently qualified for Augusta can still snag an invitation. Here are the three ways to make it happen:

Win the Valspar Championship, March 16-19 in Palm Harbor, Florida
Be among the 50 leaders on the Official World Golf Ranking published during the week prior to the Masters Tournament
Win the Valero Texas Open, March 30 – April 2

Is Rickie Fowler invited to the Masters?

Rickie Fowler missed the 2022 Masters, but he can still qualify to play in April. Though Fowler was 71st on the Official World Golf Ranking going in last week’s Players Championship, a T-13 finish propelled him to the No. 59 spot.

Fowler is not playing in the Valspar Championship but is expected to play in the WGC Match Play event, where a good showing could get him into the top 50.

If he doesn’t make the top 50, he’ll need to win the Valero Texas Open in Houston for a chance at a green jacket.
