The 43-year-old was certain to keep his place in the world's top 50 because of the results of others at the Trophee Hassan II in Morocco and Arnold Palmer Invitational in Florida.

Lawrie last season had his first win for nine years, ended 2011 by finishing runner-up in the Dubai World Championship and then last month won the Qatar Masters.

He has not played any major in America since the 2004 US Open and in five appearances at Augusta has a best finish of 15th nine years ago.
