Appleby Assured 2002 Masters Spot


Stuart Appleby moved up to No. 43 in the World Rankings with his recent win in the Australian Open.
The win is important because it guarantees Appleby of staying in the top 50 at the end of the year, and the top 50 get invites into The Masters.
Charles Howell III is also going to play in his hometown of Augusta, Ga. He has qualified for The Masters with a No. 44 ranking after finishing ninth in the Australian Open.
