I can almost hear Kenny Loggins' "I'm Alright" playing somewhere right now.

D.A. Points and Bill Murray pulled off a win at the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

USA Today reports Points was one shot behind as he played the second toughest hole on the course when he popped an eagle from 100 yards, following up with 30-foot birdie putt.

His partner Bill Murray, who is well known for many roles including the classic golf movie "Caddyshack" now gets his name on a plaque on the wall of pro-am champs below the first tee at Pebble Beach.

"Pebble Beach may be the most iconic place in America to play golf, and to win here, it's just a dream come true," said Points, who finished at 15-under 271 and earned his first trip to the Masters.

Points said playing with Murray and all his craziness helped keep him at ease.

Murray even reenacted his "Cinderella Story" scene from "Caddyshack," swatting at flowers with his club, after Points had the game wrapped up with a par on the 18th.

I'm sure that gopher isn't the only one dancing tonight.
