Zach Johnson carded a final-round 2-over-par 35-37=72 to pass Jason Dufner and capture the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial title by one stroke.
In what was a bizarre turn of events, Johnson had to sign for a double bogey-6 on the final hole after failing to replace his mark when he moved it for Dufner, resulting in a two-stroke penalty. He was asked to confirm that by his caddie after having conducted his victory interview with CBS. ZJ goes in the books at 12-under 64-67-65-72=268. It's his first win since he was victorious at Colonial in 2010. Before the 72nd hole today, he circled three birdies and swallowed three bogeys on the round. He landed 10 GIR and took 26 putts. It was the flat stick that propped him up all week, as he led the field in putts per round (25.5), ranked second with a 1.622 putting average and third in Strokes Gained-Putting. With the win, Johnson moves to third in FedExCup Points and earns exemptions into the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and PGA Championship.
