Fantastic finish caps off wild week at SHO

Posted: Monday, April 7, 2014 12:00 am

I don’t know what was more exciting — the 46-foot birdie putt Matt Jones sank on the last hole of his final round Sunday at the Shell Houston Open to give him a chance to catch Matt Kuchar, who had led most of the last two rounds, or the 42-yard chip-in for birdie on the same hole during a playoff that all but clinched the win.

I’ll go with the latter, since Kuchar failed to hole out on his third shot from a greenside bunker to halve the first playoff hole, making Jones the winner and securing the Australian a spot in next week’s Masters Tournament in Augusta, Ga.
