India's Shubhankar Sharma accepts Masters invite

India's Shubhankar Sharma, fresh off an impressive outing in his PGA Tour debut that made the golfing world take notice, has accepted an invitation to compete in next month's U.S. Masters, the tournament said on Tuesday.

Sharma, who led last week's WGC-Mexico Championship after three rounds before finishing in a share of ninth, will become the fourth Indian player to compete in the year's first major, following Jeev Milkha Singh, Arjun Atwal and Anirban Lahiri.

The 21-year-old Indian, who is ranked 66th in the world, has won twice in the past four months, at the European Tour's Joburg Open in December and the Maybank Championship in February.
