Henley Rallies To Win Houston Open, Earn Trip To Masters

Russell Henley no longer gets to take a week off, and he couldn't be happier.

He's going to the Masters.

Henley overcame a four-shot deficit Sunday in the Houston by closing with a 7-under 65 for a three-shot victory, one of the most important final rounds of his career. Only later did he realize it might have his best.
