(January 2, 2017) -- For Stewart Hagestad the 2016 holiday season had a little bit of extra cheer as on December 30th he received his 2017 Masters invitation. Hagestad earned his spot in the field when he won the U.S. Mid-Amateur last September with a late rally in the championship match.

Hagestad, who played on the USC golf team for four years, will be playing in his first Masters and the first professional major of his career. He will also being teeing it up against some of the players he used to compete against in the junior golf and collegiate ranks.

After receiving his invitation in the mail Hagestad shared the news on his Instagram and Twitter pages saying, "I have long dreamed of the day that I would have the chance to read this letter with my own eyes. This invitation represents the single most significant individual goal that I have ever set for myself - the opportunity to compete in The Masters."

With the calendar now flipped to August, Hagestad has just over four months until the Masters begins on April 6th.
