Kevin Streelman and Jeff Overton are among five players in the Tour Championship who will be making their Masters debut next April. What sets them apart is that they have yet to win on the PGA Tour.

Streelman is getting a lot of attention for only having one good week against a strong field to get to East Lake.

As for being without a PGA Tour victory and going to the Masters. It happens more than one might think. There were six PGA Tour members at Augusta National who had never won on tour—John Merrick, Ricky Barnes, Kevin Na, Marc Leishman, Steve Marino and Jason Dufner.

There were five such players each of the previous two years.
