In late 2009, Masson entered the four-round LET Final Qualifying School as an amateur at La Manga Club, Spain. After earning medalist honors on 21 December, she turned professional immediately and joined the LET on 1 January 2010.

Masson made 14 of 16 cuts on the LET in 2010, but missed the cut by ten strokes in her first major, the 2010 Women's British Open at Royal Birkdale. In her second major, the 2011 Women's British Open at Carnoustie, she led after the second and third rounds. Paired with defending and eventual champion Yani Tseng in the final round, Masson carded a 78 (+6) to finish tied for fifth, seven shots back.

Masson won her first LET event at the 2012 South African Women's Open, winning by one stroke over Lee-Anne Pace and Danielle Montgomery.

Masson finished T-11 at the LPGA Final Qualifying Tournament to earn her LPGA Tour card for 2013.

On September 4, 2016, Masson captured her first LPGA Tour victory by winning the Manulife LPGA Classic.
