Augusta, GA ( - Two-time Masters champion Ben Crenshaw will play Augusta National just one more time competitively.

Crenshaw, winner of the green jacket in 1984 and 1995, told the Golf Channel on Saturday morning he will make his final Masters start in 2015.

It will mark the 20th anniversary of his last title at the historic course. The 1995 Masters win was also the last of his 19 career PGA Tour victories.

"I made the decision that next year is my last year," Crenshaw said in an interview Saturday morning. "I've thought about it for a long time. A lot of times I thought that I could have stepped down earlier. It is hard. Very hard. But I have been so fortunate. I have to look at the good things that have happened. I have to pull over and watch. I'm very resigned to being an encourager for everybody as much as I can."

Crenshaw missed the cut this week after rounds of 83 and 85.

In addition to his two Masters wins, the 62-year-old Texas native also finished second in 1976 and 1983.
