2013 PREVIEW: If D.A. Points can get off to another good start on the West Coast, where he's had a pair of top-10s in each of the last two years, the new year could be a good one for the affable Illinois grad.
2012 DEFINING MOMENT: Points continued to make progress last year, finishing in the top 25 in more than half of the events where he made the cut. He gave himself a golden opportunity for his second win in as many years, as he lost in a playoff at the Wells Fargo Championship. –- Helen Ross, PGATOUR.COM
ALBERS’ QUICK TAKE: It’s hard to find a nicer person on TOUR than Darren Andrew Points. D.A. is always obliging with an interview and some insight. I thought he was going to win Wells Fargo but lost in a playoff. D.A. told me, he needs to work on his attitude during a round and smile a little more. -- Fred Albers, SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio
BOLTON’S FANTASY OUTLOOK: Missed 10 of 15 cuts in his last 15 starts. Exerted the bulk of his damage before Memorial Day, but was stricken with a back injury which may or may not have played a role in his second-half fade. He'll play 2013 as a 36-year-old, which is to say that he's medium-risk, low-reward investment. Avoid in salary games. -- Rob Bolton, PGATOUR.COM Fantasy expert
