Jim Herman, a Cincinnati native who played golf at St. Xavier High School and the University of Cincinnati, won his first PGA Tour event Sunday at the Shell Houston Open, and an automatic invitation to his first-ever Masters tournament at Augusta National.
Moments after his winning putt, Herman fought tears and said of heading to next weekend's biggest professional golf tournament of the year, "I never thought it was possible."
The 38-year-old Herman finished 15 strokes under par, one shot ahead of Henrik Stenson. Herman is ranked 191st in the world.
Herman was a co-leader through three rounds. He and Jamie Lovemark finished 54 holes at 11-under par, one stroke ahead of Stenson, Dustin Johnson and Russell Hensley.
Herman shot a 5-under 67 Saturday to move to the top of the leaderboard.
