Graham DeLaet is heading to Augusta National.

After making strides in 2013, the 31-year-old Canadian golfer will compete in his first Masters in April.

DeLaet broke the news in a tweet Monday night which included a picture of a tournament invite that he received in the mail.

“Without question the best piece of mail anyone could ever receive,” he posted to Twitter.

DeLaet, who earned a purse of just under $3 million in 2013, competed in his first major – The Open Championship – earlier this year, placing 83rd.

He’s currently ranked 36th in the world following a trio of top-three finishes in 2013.

The 78th edition of the Masters runs April 10-13 in Augusta, Ga.

Australian Adam Scott is the defending champion at the event.
