Sharma (21) accepts invitation to 2018 Masters

Shubhankar Sharma, the 21-year-old Indian student who contested at the WGC-Mexico Championship last weekend, has accepted an invitation to the 2018 Masters. 
Sharma is ranked No. 66 in the Official World Golf Rankings and has not officially qualified for the year's first major championship. He had opportunities to do so as a US PGA Tour winner before the Masters or if he got into the top 50 in the World Rankings the week before the Masters, but Augusta National chairman Fred Ridley has extended a special invite anyway.
"Golf is a global game, and throughout our history we have extended invitations to deserving international players not otherwise qualified," Ridley said in a statement. "As his results have proven, Shubhankar Sharma is a remarkable young player, and we look forward to welcoming him to Augusta National in April."
