D.A. Points found the left side of the fairway with his opening shot of the Valero Texas Open, but that was the extent of his good start at TPC San Antonio. Points flew the green with his approach, and then, well, let's just say he struggled with a couple of bunker shots before struggling with a short putt.

With windy conditions, the already difficult TPC San Antonio is playing particularly tough on Thursday. Still, this is quite an unusual scorecard from a PGA Tour winner:
