NEWS: Masters Field Set at 87 Players

Ian Poulter added his name to the list of contestants by winning the Houston Open Sunday in a playoff against Beau Hossler. Poulter did not play at Augusta last year — the first time he had  missed the Masters since 2006 — and has made the cut in 11 of 12 Masters starts.
