Masters 2017: You can't slam-dunk an approach any better than Russell Henley did on Sunday

Russell Henley was the last player to get an invite to the Masters, earning his spot with a win at the Shell Houston Open.

After rounds of 71, 76, and 71 and going into the final round eight shots back, Henley’s having himself a nice round on Sunday.
