Cinderella Story

Cinderella story. Outta nowhere. A former greenskeeper, now, about to become the Masters champion. It looks like a mirac... It's in the hole! It's in the hole! It's in the hole!

- Carl Spackler (Bill Murray), Caddyshack

OK, so it wasn't the Masters, but the Pebble Beach Pro-Am is no slouch. And Bill Murray is now the Pro-Am champion, having partnered with tournament champion D.A. Points.

No matter how you cut it, it's a great story. Murray has played the clown for years at Pebble Beach, and some people have criticized him for it. Well, to hell with those people. This tournament is about fun, and the man can play, even when he's making fun of everything around him.

And just ask D.A. Points - hardly a household name - what effect Murray had on his game today.
