America’s Russell Henley clinched the final place at this week’s Masters in Augusta after a three-shot victory at the Houston Open.

Henley, 27, who hails from Macon in Georgia began the day four shots behind overnight leader Sung Kang of Korea.

But he shot a seven-under par final round, including 10 birdies for a third PGA Tour win.

England’s Justin Rose and Andy Sullivan both finished on seven under in a tie for 15th.

The Masters begins on Thursday with Henley appearing at the event for the fourth time.
