Here’s What’s Happened:
1. Jim Herman’s win at Shell Houston Open punched him a ticket to The Masters. Herman finished one stroke ahead of Henrik Stenson after chipping in for birdie on the 16th hole and holding on for the win. Ranked 191st in the world, this was Herman’s first career victory in 105 starts – and it couldn’t have come at a better time. See you next weekend, Jim.
What a moment for Jim Herman.
