Johnson Wagner Earns Late Masters Invitation

It’s impressive when you get your first PGA Tour victory. Especially wire to wire. And especially when it’s the final event prior to the Masters, earning you a last-minute spot in the elite field at Augusta National Golf Club come this Thursday.

Johnson Wagner accomplished all of the above at the Shell Houston Open with rounds of 63, 69, 69 and 71 for a two-shot victory over Geoff Ogilvy and Chad Campbell.

Hat tip to Wagner, who hung on today down the stretch. He must have had Georgia on his mind.

I thought that was great! And he didn't cry (at least when I saw him) when interviewed after the round, even better!

I concur that it was great. It's hard to see how someone with a swing as good as his and his refusal to bend, much less break, under pressure was refreshing to watch. I wish him well and think that he has a great future in front of him.

It's also pretty neat that Wagner, a former Virginia Tech golfer, will join Drew Weaver, a current Hokie playing as an amateur, at the Masters.
