India's Shubhankar Sharma believes he could become the first player to win the Masters on their debut since 1979 after accepting an invitation to make his major championship debut at Augusta National. Sharma finished ninth in the WGC-Mexico Championship on Sunday. And such strong performances means Sharma has not ruled out the possibility of emulating Fuzzy Zoeller in claiming the green jacket at his first attempt. "In golf anything is possible," Sharma said. "You have play well for four days, you can definitely compete with the best. I know that if I play my best, I'm good for a top five, or even a win at the Masters Tournament. I'm really looking forward to it."
