PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. - D.A. Points was disqualified Friday from the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am for using a training device while waiting to play the 18th hole at Pebble Beach.
Points was using a stick with a sponge ball attached to the end of it. Because it was in the middle of a round, he violated Rule 14-3. The penalty is disqualification. Points shot a 75 and was tied for 60th, eight shots to par behind the leaders.
Tour officials said Points could still return Saturday to play the pro-am portion of the tournament. His amateur partner is former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. If he chose not to play, another professional would be assigned to play with Rice.
Points won Pebble Beach three years ago with actor Bill Murray as his partner.
