“"It's not going to change my life, either way," Els said. "I've played many out there. It's one of those things." Hunter Mahan won the Houston Open, shooting a 1-under 71 on Sunday to finish 16 under for the tournament. The Masters could offer a special invitation to Els, like tournament officials did for Greg Norman in 2002. Els has played well this year, earning top-five finishes at the Transitions and Bay Hill. But he said Sunday he would decline an invitation if he received one at the last minute. "To go through all of this, and then get an invite, I wouldn't take it," he said. "They can keep it." Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
