As we went over last week, the 2013 Masters field is mostly set. There is, however, one spot still up for grabs at this week's Texas Open.

If the winnner in San Antonio hasn't already qualified for Augusta, he will be ushered into the field at the last minute and presumable hop a plane for Georgia late Sunday night or early Monday morning.

Let's take a look at the leaderboard to see who's already in the Masters and who needs a win to get in.

Billy Horschel (-10) - Led last week in Houston, too, and needs this to get in the Masters. I think he's going to do it.

Jim Furyk (-8) - Already in the Masters.

Charley Hoffman (-8) - Looking for third PGA Tour win and second invite to the Masters.

Ryan Palmer (-6) - Needs win to get in, finished 10th in 2011 Masters.

Bob Estes (-6) - The 47-year-old has top-12 finishes at all four majors but hasn't played Augusta since 2004. Would be a pretty amazing story if he won to get in.

Rory McIlroy (-6) - Already in but trying to have a good Sunday finish to create momentum going into the year's first major.

Padraig Harrington (-5) - Already in.

Martin Laird (-5) - Made cut at last two Masters, but needs win on Sunday to get in this year's tournament.

Jeff Overton (-5) - Has to win to get in.

K.J. Choi (-5) - Already in (won Players Championship two years ago)

Daniel Summerhays (-5) - Needs to win. Best ever finish is T4 at the Memorial last year. Summerhays has never played the Masters.
