PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. – Looks like that eagle has lit a fire in D.A. Points.
He just rolled in a curving 30-footer for birdie at No. 15 that gave him a two-stroke lead. Minutes later, though, Hunter Mahan had a chance to narrow the gap when he reached the par-5 18th in two.
Mahan’s eagle putt was from 46 feet. He missed it on the high side and had a 5-footer for birdie – but that, too, stubbornly refused to fall. Mahan finished with a 66.
