There are few better ways to start the year than getting a Masters invitation in the mail. It's a Happy New Year to remember for players who get the invites either just prior to or just after the start of the new calendar.
Lucas Bjerregaard is one of the players who earned a Masters invitation based on being ranked inside the top 50 in the Official World Golf Ranking at the year-end ranking (Week 52). He received his Masters invitation in the mail, and he shared a picture of it on social media.

In 2019, the Masters dates are April 11-14, which is spelled out in words on the Masters invitation that looks quite like the coolest wedding invitation you've ever seen. The invitation is sent by Fred Ridley, who is the chairman of Augusta National Golf Club and the Masters Tournament.
Most of the 2019 Masters field has already been decided, with only PGA Tour winners between now and the Masters, as well players in the top 50 in the Official World Golf Ranking the week prior to the tournament, yet to make out the rest of the 2019 Masters field.
