March 31, 2013 at 9:31 PM   |   Comments

HUMBLE, Texas, March 31 (UPI) -- D.A. Points shook off a lengthy storm delay Sunday and fired a 6-under-par 66 at the Houston Open for his second career PGA Tour victory.

The event was delayed late in the round as strong thunderstorms rolled north of Houston, but when play resumed Points remained steady, finishing the tournament at 16-under-par 272.

The win was his first since the 2011 Pebble Beach National Pro-Am and earned him an invitation to the Masters in two weeks.

Sharing second place at minus-15 were Henrik Stenson (66) and Billy Horschel (66).

Dustin Johnson (65) and Ben Crane (68) finished in a tie for fourth at minus-14.
