Points holds nerve, wins Houston Open

American D.A. Points held his nerve through a late weather delay to claim a one-shot victory at the Houston Open on Sunday and earn a ticket to the Masters.

Clinging to a one-shot advantage over clubhouse leader Henrik Stenson with four holes to play, Points had his momentum interrupted when a storm forced the evacuation of Redstone Golf Club and the course.

When play resumed after nearly three hours, Points carded four consecutive pars to return a bogey-free six-under 66 for a winning total of 16-under 272, one shot clear of Swede Stenson (66) and compatriot Billy Horschel (66).
