We are here ... just days and counting until the first round of 2022 Masters and the kick start of the first men's major season. And, well, the excitement is building for sure. It, of course, started to bubble up in early January when this annual, early winter tradition unfolded.

Indeed, invitations have arrived in players mailboxes. And the last spots in the field are starting to get filled. You’ll forgive us, then, for our general excitedness for what might come in the coming months.

In anticipation for the year's first men's major, we have compiled a list of who locked up an invitation to play at Augusta National. By omission, then, you can figure out who ran out of time in hopes of earing a spot in the field (for the second straight year, Rickie Fowler, failed to qualify).

With the standard 19-point qualifying criteria in place again for 2022, we have a count of 108 total invitees so far (listed below). Taking out the past champions who did not compete in 2021 or those who won't in 2022—Phil Mickelson becoming the lastest—that’s 91 pros and amateurs who are set to tee it up in a few months—we're counting Tiger as in the field until he says otherwise.

Five players earned late invites after the WGC-Dell Match Play: Thomas Pieters, Harold Varner III, Seamus Power, Russell Henley and Cameron Young. These players were in the top 50 of the World Ranking but weren't yet in the field. And then J.J. Spaun got the past sp Now, there is just one more shot at qualifying for the Masters: a victory at the upcoming Valero Texas Open.

Below is who we’ve got pegged for Augusta.
