Matt Jones Gets To Augusta With A Slam Dunk

((HT: PGA Tour/NBC))

The only way someone else was going to get to Augusta to play in the tournament next week was to beat Matt Kuchar and not already be going in the first place...

Kuchar had a four-shot lead going into the last day in Houston, but surrendered the lead and was in a playoff with Matt Jones...

Jones went all Larry Mize and now gets into the major...

Quoting Mel Allen: "How about that?"

A final round 66, his first tour win, and an invite to Augusta. Adams made a 46-foot birdie putt on the 72nd hole to reach the playoff and made a 42-yard chip for the win.

Kuchar bogeyed the final hole of regulation, then missed his bunker shot to give Jones the win and almost $1.2 million.
