D.A. Points Wins First PGA Tour Event

D.A. Points got his first ever PGA Tour victory Sunday at Pebble Beach. Points won the pro-am by two strokes shooting a final round 5 under par 67. Points took celebrity and “Caddyshack” legend Bill Murray along for the ride. The win gave Murray his first pro-am title as well. Points took over the lead with an amazing eagle on the 14th hole.

While D.A. Points did his job to secure the PGA Tour victory, Bill Murray did his part providing the comic relief along the way. Points was able to hold off Hunter Mayhan who finished two strokes behind, firing a final round 66.

D.A. (which stands for Darren Andrews) Points won his first PGA Tour event in 128 starts. The 34 year-old was a third team All-American at the University of Illinois, and lost to Tiger Woods in the quarterfinals of the 1996 U.S. Amateur. The victory won him over one million dollars, more than he had earned in his previous four years on the tour. The win also gives Points a two-year exemption and earns him a trip to The Masters.
