"So it's great to see it and great Augusta afforded Shubhankar Sharma an invitation," Mcllroy said at Palm Harbor, Florida.
Shubhankar will become the fourth Indian player to compete in the Masters, following Jeev Milkha Singh, Arjun Atwal and Anirban Lahiri.
Two European Tour titles in two months is a dream-come-true for Shubhankar Sharma but the Indian youngster is trying to stay grounded as he chases a spot at this year’s US Masters.
