Murray wins pro-am title at Pebble Beach

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. - Sunday at Pebble Beach turned out to be a real Cinderella story.

D.A. Points captured his first PGA Tour victory and dragged along his amateur, Bill Murray of "Caddyshack" fame, to the pro-am title.

It was a rare occasion when the winner wasn't even the biggest star.

Murray, famous for his role as assistant greenskeeper Carl Spackler in "Caddyshack," has become a staple at this celebrity-rich tournament over the last two decades.

He now gets his name on a plaque in the wall of pro-am champions below the first tee at Pebble Beach.

Points and Murray won the pro-am tournament by two shots.

Is this a new tandem?

"I'm thinking of turning pro," Murray said. "I probably won't. It's really nice to play with a gentleman. He's a good person. He's from Illinois. He's Lincoln-esque in stature and unfailingly polite." - AP
