Johnson halts Dufner’s PGA Tour hot streak; wins Colonial

Jason Dufner had been the talk of the PGA Tour the past four weeks, winning two tournaments.

After winning the Byron Nelson Championship, Dufner was trying to match Ben Hogan as the only golfers to win both PGA Tour-events in the Dallas-Fort Worth area in the same year. Hogan accomplished the feat in 1946. Back in those days, the tournaments were not played in consecutive weeks.

Zach Johnson was able to cool down Dufner somewhat after winning the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial for his first victory since winning in the Dallas event two years ago.

Johnson earned his eighth career PGA Tour victory by holding off Dufner.

Johnson was assessed a two-stroke penalty for failing to replace his ball at its original position after marking it on the 18th hole. That put him at 2-over-par 72 and a one-shot win in Fort Worth, Texas.

Johnson moved his original ball mark out of the line of Dufner’s putt on the 18th green. But he made the mistake of forgetting to move it back before his final 5-foot putt.

Even with that penalty,Johnson’s 12-under-268 total was good enough to beat Dufner, who closed the final round of 74.
