With the Masters in 2 weeks time, players get their first big chance to leap up the world rankings pushing further for spots at the Olympics next summer. However, players who have had a decent season so far may not get their chance to prove themselves on the big stage at Augusta.
The most surprising perhaps, Andy Sullivan, having won two times this season of his nine starts, he will be hoping to make it three in the Trophee Hassan II this week and go one better on last year’s second place finish. In order to qualify for the first major of the year, and make his debut at a major, he must at least equal last year’s performance to jump into the world’s top 50 and receive an invitation to Augusta.
Tommy Fleetwood will be hoping to tee up at the Masters for the first time, but he will be needing a first place finish before he can book his plane to Georgia. Having played in the final two majors of last year and finishing strongly towards the end of 2014 he will be wanting to taste the major atmosphere again this year.
Ross Fisher will be hoping fellow Brits slip up in Morroco, as he needs a win and other results to go his way, if he is to play at Augusta National in a couple of weeks.
Scotsman Marc Warren, currently rated 51st in the world, needs to finish 18th or better in the Valero Texas Open on the PGA Tour to receive an invitation to get a chance at playing for that all important green jacket.
All players will be giving it their all this week, in their last round before the Masters, on both respective tours, to cement their place in the field at Augusta, which promises for an exciting couple of weeks of golf before the first major of the year.
