The last OWGR for the year were finalized on Sunday.  This is important in that Augusta National invites the top 50 to next year's Masters.

thor_thumb[1] Desperately unlucky to not make it was Ireland’s Shane Lowry, who won the Portugal Masters but missed the lucrative Dubai World Championship due to illness. Others to miss out include Henrik Stenson, Miguel Angel Jimenez, Richie Ramsay, Marcus Fraser and Padraig Harrington who finished in 59th

On a brighter note Denmark’s Thorbjorn Olesen's did make it into the top 50, ironically enough by not playing since the Dubai World Championship. Geoff Ogilvy, who is 56th, is in line to temporarily pass Olesen into 50th,  after a fourth-place finish in the Australian PGA Championship, but Olesen will again overtake Ogilvy over the next two weeks.

Weird I know but the OWGR ranks players based on average points earned per tournament in the past two years. Points earned for a specific finish decrease as time passes from that tournament; thus the reason for Ogilvy's fall.

Others to make it to Augusta are George Coetzee, Paul Lawrie, Francesco Molinari, Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano, Branden Grace, Nicolas Colsaerts, Matteo Manassero with Bill Haas and Jason Day from the PGA Tour.
