American Russell Henley secured the final place at this week's Masters after claiming a three-shot victory over South Korea's Sung Kang at the Houston Open.
A double bogey on the par-three ninth - where Henley found a bunker from the tee and then three-putted - briefly checked his progress.
Sung Kang passed his first test on Saturday while chasing his maiden PGA Tour win at the Houston Open.
A dropped shot at the last saw Henley finish on 20 under par for the week, with Kang three shots adrift in second.

Kang began the day a shot behind overnight leader Rickie Fowler, but quickly erased that deficit with a birdie on the 11th, his second hole of the day.
