D.A. Points closed the door on his second PGA TOUR victory when he signed for a bogey-free 6-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of the Shell Houston Open.

Points started hot, with birdies from 6'7" and 28'10" on the second and third holes, respectively. Starting on the eight hole, he rattled of four birdies in a six-hole span and held on for pars the rest of the way. It wasn't as easy as it sounded, as he needed a par putt to drop from 13'5" on Redstone's difficult 18th hole to finish at 16-under 64-71-71-66=272 and avoid a three-way playoff with Henrik Stenson and Billy Horschel. Points was also one of 12 that waited out a weather delay of two hours and 38 minutes. Much was made in the final round on the NBC/Golf Channel telecast of Points using his mother's putter this week, and that proved the crucial club. With this victory, he earns a spot into the Masters, the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and the PGA Championship. He is scheduled to move on to TPC San Antonio to compete in this week's Valero Texas Open.

Charley Hoffman was removed from the published field of this week's Memorial.

Hoffman has been on a tear for two months. His success is particularly evident in Texas where he finished no worse than T11 (twice) in all four stops. Yesterday's share of second place at TPC Four Seasons was his second T2 of 2014-15. With a win at Mayakoba also in the bank, the 38-year-old is fourth in the FedExCup standings.

Kyle Thompson spun a 4-under-par 35-32=67 in the final round of the Rex Hospital Open and survived a three-man playoff to claim the title.

He finished his week at 17-under 267. He's no stranger to success at TPC Wakefield Plantation, winning this event in 2007 and 2011. His other Web.com Tour win came in 2007 at the Oregon Classic. Thompson was sniffing the top of the leaderboard after two birdies on his first eight holes, but lost some ground with a bogey on the par-5 ninth. He bounced back nicely, circling birdies on the 10th, 11th and 12th holes before trading a bogey at the par-4 14th with a birdie on the par-5 15th. After watching his birdie bid for the win on the first hole of sudden death slide by on the right side, he converted a putt from short range on the second playoff hole. The par-4 18th was utilized for both playoff holes. Due to limited Web.com Tour status, this was just Thompson's second start of the season. He missed the cut in the BMW Charity Pro-Am two weeks ago. With this win, he moves to 15th on the Web.com Tour money list and now has the full status needed to chase a 2015-16 PGA TOUR card.

Overnight leader Steven Bowditch rode seven birdies to a final-round, 5-under-par 34-30=64 to post 18-under 259 and a four-shot victory over a trio of runners-up.

Bowditch got married at the TPC Four Seasons, so he's familiar with posing for pictures at the venue. The local resident (Flower Mound) began his final frame with a two-shot lead over five players, including playing partners Dustin Johnson and Scott Pinckney. Bowditch was a little shaky at the outset, scoring 1-over thru his first five, including a three-putt bogey on the fifth. It was nothing about which to be alarmed, however, as the 31-year-old played his last 13 holes in a sparkling 6-under. It was Bowditch's week, leading or co-leading after each of the first three rounds. This is the Aussie's second career win (in 146 starts), both of which in Texas (2014 Valero Texas Open). Today's exempts him into return trips to the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational and PGA Championship this summer.

English pair Tyrrell Hatton and Eddie Pepperell along with Denmark's Søren Kjeldsen earned exemptions into The Open Championship with their high finishes at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open.

Kjelsden took victory in Ireland after winning a three-way playoff which featured Pepperell and Bernd Wiesberger while Hatton finished a shot back. Wiesberger had already punched his ticket to St Andrews so, with three spots on offer, Hatton secured his place in the 156-man field due to a marginally higher world ranking (142nd to 148th) than Rafael Cabrera-Bello, who finished alongside him in T4. Kjeldsen will be returning to the Open for the first time since a T37 at St Andrews in 2010. Overall he's 3-for-6 in the year's third major with a best of T27 in 2009. Pepperell has an Open debut to look forward to while Hatton will be trying to make the weekend for the first time in four appearances, the first of his missed cuts coming at St Andrews when he played there as an amateur five years ago.

Søren Kjeldsen did it the hard way, enduring a final-round 5-over-par 39-37=76 at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open before beating Eddie Pepperell and Bernd Wiesberger at the first extra hole.

Two clear at start of play, the Dane lost his lead with bogeys at the opening two holes and slipped further with a double bogey-6 at the 8th. He steadied the ship with a birdie at 12 and with everyone struggling around him in the strong winds at Royal County Down, the 40-year-old needed a pair of closing pars to take victory. He wobbled with a three-putt at 17 to drop back into a tie and fluffed a chip over the green at the par-5 18th and had to get up and down just to make the playoff mark of 2-under 282 set earlier by Pepperell and Wiesberger. Credit to him in the playoff, though, as he found the green with his second and two-putted for a winning birdie to capture his first European Tour title since the 2009 Open de Andalucia de Golf in Spain. Kjeldsen is now exempt into the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational in August.

With a two-stroke victory at the Mizuno Open on the Japan Golf Tour, Taichi Teshima earned an exemption into The Open Championship.

The 46-year-old covered six bogeys with 21 birdies at JFE Setonaikai Golf Club in Okayama for his eighth victory on the JGTO. This event doubled as Japan's Open Qualifying Series for the season's third major. The top four punched tickets to St. Andrews. Teshimi is 0-for-2 in the major (2001, 2002). Scott Strange finished alone in second place, two shots back. In his only previous appearance in The Open, the Aussie missed the cut in 2008. Shinji Tomimura and Tadahiro Takayama shared third place four swings in arrears of the champ to gobble up the other two berths into the field of 156 at St. Andrews. Tomimura has never played in any major while Takayama is 1-for-3 at The Open with a T23 at St. Andrews in 2005.

Amateur Austin Connelly back-pedaled to a 3-over-par 37-35=72 in today's third round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship and at 1-under 207 will not be partaking in the final round in Irving, Texas.

Connelly, who was born and raised in Dallas, began the third round at 4-under (T26), well inside of the 21 players at T67 after two rounds had been completed. The 18-year-old looked a lock to not be included in a second cut of low 70 professionals and ties after 54 holes but, alas, the fairy tale ended and Connelly is joined by 14 others without a Sunday reservation: 207--Austin Connelly; Jim Herman; Steve Wheatcroft; Carlos Ortiz; Michael Putnam ... 208--Robert Garrigus; Cody Gribble; Charl Schwartzel; Bo Van Pelt ... 209--Whee Kim; Trevor Immelman; Roberto Castro ... 210--Boo Weekley; Billy Hurley III ... 211--Tom Gillis.

Overnight co-leader Steven Bowditch tossed up a 4-under-par 33-32=65 in today's third round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship to post 13-under 195, good for a two-shot lead over five players.

Bowditch began the third round in a three-way tie for the lead with Jon Curran and Jimmy Walker at 9-under. The 31-year-old smothered one bogey with five birdies en route to his two-shot margin heading into championship Sunday. Bowditch's par breakers came on Nos. 3, 6, 7, 11 and 14, squaring his lone bogey on the par-4 ninth. The Aussie is seeking his second PGA TOUR title in 145 career starts, having won the Valero Texas Open in 2014.
May 30 - 9:33 PM

At 1-under 71-67=138, Trevor Immelman made the cut on the number at the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

This is Immelman's first payday since a T49 at the CIMB Classic last fall. He went nine straight starts without one. However, his work is far from over. Because 87 golfers survived the cut, another cut of low 70 professionals and ties will fall at the conclusion of 54 holes. After a threat of inclement weather clears out this afternoon, the forecast for the remainder of the weekend is favorable.
May 30 - 3:07 PM

Brendon Todd chased his opening 72 at the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship with a 1-under-par 35-33=68 in the second round and missed the cut by two shots.

The defending champion traded four birdies with three bogeys in the second round. It's just his third MC in 15 starts this season, so he'll have to regroup for next week's Memorial. Other notables that missed the cut at TPC Four Seasons include: 139--Martin Laird; Charles Howell III; Morgan Hoffmann ... 140--Brendan Steele; Marc Leishman; Patrick Rodgers ... 141--2007 champ Scott Verplank ... 143--2013 champ Sangmoon Bae.

Benjamin Alvarado shot 3-over-par 69-73=142 at the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship and missed the cut by four strokes.

The Chilean poured in six birdies at TPC Four Seasons Resort-Las Colinas this week, but also absorbed five bogeys and a pair of double bogey-6s, both of which in his second round. He's now 1-for-4 on the season, but this week's start was his last via a medical extension in the reshuffle category. For the record, he fell $670,304 and 397 FedExCup points short of its terms for a promotion to the Major Medical category. However, Alvarado still has four starts remaining on a Minor Medical Extension with the same targets. He's also 281.760 FedExCup points shy of meeting the objective for conditional status. Overall, the slide from the reshuffle to the Minor Medical category isn't far and you won't notice the difference.
