D.A. Points came back from a long rain delay and made four pars. The last one gave him a 1-shot victory in the Houston Open in Humble, Texas, and sent him to the Masters.

Points closed with a 6-under 66 Sunday, saving par on the last two holes at Redstone Golf Club to outlast Masters-bound Henrik Stenson and Billy Horschel. The final round was halted for nearly three hours due to storms.

The victory gives Points a spot in the Masters, just like his only other victory did two years ago at Pebble Beach with actor Bill Murray along for the laughs.?He started the year by missing the cut seven times in nine tournaments. He arrived at Redstone Golf Club having not broken 70 in last nine rounds. But he stayed in the hunt after opening with a 64, and he kept his calm when he returned to the golf course after a rain delay of nearly three hours.

“Thank you for staying,” Points said to the sparse gallery as he walked off the green.

Points kept alive the streak of Americans winning all 14 events on the PGA Tour this year.

Stenson birdied his last two holes for a 66 before the storms rolled across Houston, and while he came up 1 shot short, he moved up to No. 42 in the world ranking to earn an invitation to the Masters. Horschel was on the 18th tee when play was halted, and then had to wait some more for his turn to hit on the tough driving hole. He split the middle, found the green and two-putted for par to join Stenson in the clubhouse lead.

They waited around for a playoff that wasn’t necessary when Points saved par on his last two holes.

European Tour

Marcel Siem of Germany shot a 2-under 70 to win the Hassan II Trophy by three strokes in Agadir, Morocco.

He earned his third European Tour title with a 17-under 217. Siem held off Finland’s Mikko Ilonen and England’s David Horsey, who were tied for second.

The French Open champion was four shots ahead overnight but had a slow start with a bogey on the first hole.

Three birdies from Siem and a mid-round slump from Ilonen gave him a decisive lead.
