Shell Houston Open 2013: Day 4 Leaderboard Analysis, Highlights and More

A rain delay didn’t keep the leaders of the Shell Houston Open from racing to the finish.

In the end, D.A. Points finished off a superb Sunday performance to take home the title at Redstone GC.

Points, an Illinois native, had missed the cut in every event this year before shooting a magnificent 16-under par to win in Houston.

He needed every stroke to win the event, including a clutch par putt on the 18th green to secure the lead for good. 

Both Bill Haas and Stewart Cink led the field heading into Sunday but couldn’t hold serve as the final round played on. Cink needed to hole out on the 18th to tie Points, but his shot from the bunker fell way short of the green.

Meanwhile, Phil Mickelson may not have had a fairytale final round, but he played well enough to be encouraged with the Masters two weeks away.

Lefty finished four under on the day, including an impressive nine-under total for the weekend. At one point, he was only one shot off the leaders, but it was not to be.

Final Round Highlights

The best round of the day went to Dustin Johnson, with a seven-under 65 to finish tied for fourth. D.J. converted five birdie tries on the front-nine and finished up with an eagle on No. 15 to cap a masterful day. Check out the impressive eagle below:

Kevin Chappell continued his impressive play with a strong final round at Redstone. Chappell finished in the leaderboard’s top-five and also had a hole-in-one last week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Check out the five-year pro hit a fantastic up-and-down that rolled inside three feet.

Some players were golfing for a Masters invitation, such as Henrik Stenson, who threatened for the lead and earned an invite to Augusta with his final putt on the 18th green.

But the day belonged to Points and his formidable putter. The tournament winner hit this 28-footer on the third hole to begin his charge for the lead.
