David Lynn says that it is a dream come true to qualify for the Masters in 2013.

David Lynn has described his qualification for the 2013 Masters as "a dream come true" after finishing second at the US PGA Championship yesterday.

The Stoke-based golfer finished behind winner Rory McIlroy on five under and as a result receives an automatic berth in next year's Masters.

Lynn's previous best finish in a major came in the 2003 Open where he came in at tied for 53rd and the 38-year-old is ecstatic after his performance in the USA.

"To get in is just a dream come true, obviously - amazing," he said.

"I saw Rory at 11 [under] and I thought he's not going to mess up from there. It was just a case of playing for as good a position as I could.

"I've never been exempt to play in anything in America before, so that's the reason why I've never been over here. This is a good start."

Lynn qualified for the US PGA Championship after breaking into the world top 100.
