Henrik Stenson among 4 players who get into Masters through ranking

One way or another, Henrik Stenson is going to the Masters.

Stenson needed to finish at least in 13th place alone Sunday in the Houston Open. He closed with a 6-under 66 for the clubhouse lead, assuring that he will be in the top 50 in the world at the end of the week.

On the other side of the Atlantic, Marcel Siem of Germany won the Hassan Trophy in Morocco. That moved him up 22 spots to No. 50, sending him to the Masters for the first time. Siem will finish one-hundredth of a point ahead of Russell Henley, who already qualified by winning the Sony Open this year.

Fredrik Jacobson and Richard Sterne also are added to the Masters field by staying in the top 50.
