D.A. Points won for the second time on the PGA Tour on Sunday, sinking a 13-foot putt on the final hole for a tournament-clinching par at the Shell Houston Open. Points, who had missed seven of nine cuts in 2013, now has a ticket to the Masters next week.
He putted great all week, bringing back into the bag a flatstick he stole from his mother’s bag when he was 12 and used to win a lot growing up in the game.
The lesson? Sometimes being a mama’s boy is not the worst thing.
Now onto the Monday edition of the Tips…
- D.A. might be looking to improve his ride after a seven-figure payday in Texas. Maybe he can start by looking at this list of the most expensive cars in the world.
- There’s talk in the game about rolling back how far the golf ball can fly. John Paul Newport at the Wall St. Journal, however, sees some road blocks.
- Bubba Watson spent his Friday wearing a pair of shoes LeBron James dubbed the “LeBronald Palmers.” The King — the one in Miami, not Latrobe — approved.
- Finally, check out this great spot for Hugo Boss.
