Despite shooting a 66 in the final round of the Shell Houston Open, Augusta native Charles Howell III failed to qualify for the Masters Tournament.

Howell finished the tournament -11, good enough for a 10th place finish. But at 57th in the World Golf Rankings, Howell needed a Top 4 finish to earn enough points to crack the Top 50 and earn an automatic bid to Augusta National.

This is just the 5th time in Howell's 13 years on the PGA tour that he's failed to qualify for his hometown tournament. In 2012 Howell posted his best finish at the Masters, tied for 18th.

Howell will skip next week's Valero Open.
