Erik Compton
Erik Compton earned his full-time PGA Tour card in 2012, after graduating from Georgia in 2001 and playing golf's mini-tours.

Welcome to SportsNation! On Wednesday, we're hitting the links when PGA Tour golfer Erik Compton drops by to chat about his second-placed finish at the U.S. Open that also gives him an invite to the 2015 Masters.

Compton, 34, finished the weekend at Pinehurst No. 2 at 1-under in a tie for second, which gives him the automatic invite to Augusta National next year, his first time playing The Masters. Playing in just his second major, Compton earned the best finish of his career.

Compton's finish is remarkable, considering six years ago he underwent his second heart transplant. He was diagnosed with viral cardiomyopathy when he was 9 and he had his first heart transplant at 12. He works with Donate Life to help raise awareness of organ donation.
