2013 Masters field: Entrants list up to 89 as qualifying opportunities dwindle

Jack Gruber-USA TODAY Sports

With less than a month to go, there are only a few chances left for PGA Tour players still seeking a Masters invite.

The 2013 Masters is less than a month away so there are precious few opportunities for golfers to play their way into the field. Kevin Streelman added his name to the list this past week with a win at the Tampa Bay Championship. This will be the second time that Streelman tees it up at The Masters, with a missed cut in his only other appearance in 2011. He joins Michael Thompson as late "Florida Swing" winners to earn entry to the season's first major.

The field is currently set at 89 players, but there are a few more chances for that to expand. In order to pick up an invite, a player must win one of the three remaining full-point PGA Tour events or move into the top 50 of the Official World Golf Rankings the week before the tournament. Those three events are the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill this week, and then the Shell Houston Open and Valero Texas Open. There's also an outside chance that the membership of Augusta National extends a special invite, but those are extremely rare and there does not appear to be any prime candidates for such an invite as the event draws near.

The qualifying process for The Masters is very different from all the other majors, with a narrow and limited group compared to the large fields at the U.S. Open and PGA Championship. The quirks and traditions of The Masters are a constant topic of discussion, and the qualifying process is certainly a part of that -- particularly the emphasis on amateurs and past champions. As of March 20, here's the full list of 89 qualifiers for the season's first major (in alpha order):
