D.A. Points and Bill Murray - 2011 Pebble Beach Pro-Am

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. – Following another solid weekend of action that saw Thomas Pieters finish in sixth place at the DP World Tour’s Hero Dubai Desert Classic, five former Illini are now set to compete this week on the PGA Tour and Korn Ferry Tour as the calendar flips to February for Week 5 of the 2023 season.


On the PGA Tour, Thomas Detry and Nick Hardy finished tied for 37th and tied for 44th, respectively, last weekend at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines. This week, the Illini duo welcomes fellow Illinois alum D.A. Points into the field at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

Points, has previously played in the event 16 times in his career, capturing the title in 2011 when he was paired with comedy legend and fellow Illinois native Bill Murray.
