AUGUSTA, Ga. – Francesco and Edoardo Molinari will finish the year in the top 50 in the world and become the first set of brothers in 10 years to compete in the same Masters.

The Masters invites the top 50 in the final world ranking of the year, which was finalized Sunday after the South African Open, the last official tournament of 2009.

Franceso Molinari will finish at No. 38, while Edoardo Molinari will be No. 48. The World Cup winners in China last month, they will be the first brothers at Augusta National since Jumbo and Joe Ozaki in 2000.

Also qualifying is Michael Sim, who won three times on the Nationwide Tour and won its money title.

Ben Curtis will finish at No. 50 by one-thousandth of a point over Ryan Moore, who already is eligible from winning a PGA Tour event.
