HOUSTON, Texas - American golfer DA Points held his nerve after a lengthy rain delay to score a one-shot victory in the Houston Open.
Points fired a six-under final round but was forced to wait almost three hours to play his final four holes due to a thunderstorm.
He came back after the delay and parred his way in, celebrating with a shout and fist-pump when his 13-foot par putt dropped at 18 to edge Sweden's Henrik Stenson and American Billy Horschel who tied for second at 15-under.
Best-placed Australian Aaron Baddeley shot a three-under-par 69 in the final round, to finish at six-under, one-shot ahead of compatriot Matt Jones who had an even-par round.
"To have a putt to win, you want that starting out every week," said Points, who has endured a difficult season that included missing seven of nine cuts.
