Matt Jones told his caddie he was going to chip-in as they walked up the fairway of the 18th hole for the second time that day. Then, he did just that, holing a 42-yard chip (see above) for birdie to steal the Shell Houston Open from 54-hole leader Matt Kuchar.

The 23-year-old from Northern Ireland enters the Shell Houston Open this week as the world’s no. 2, trying to build from the momentum he found a few weeks ago at Doral just 14 days before the Masters kicks off.
