Zach Johnson has won the Crowne Plaza Invitational title twice, in 2010 and 2012.

Jason Dufner came to Colonial last year the week after winning for the second time on the PGA Tour.
Not only that, but it was his second win in four weeks. He entered the final round at Colonial with a 2-stroke lead over Zach Johnson, but he failed to hold it.
Dufner struggled to a 4-over 74 to lose to Johnson by one. The former Masters champion didn't have it easy in the final round either, as he closed with a 2- over 72 in what was a 2-man race throughout the final round.
Is the anchor ban needed?
By Kevin Currie, Golf Editor
Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) -
The United States Golf Association and Royal & Ancient Golf Club announced Tuesday they are enacting the anchored putting ban as a new rule in 2016.
Cutting to the chase, they are waiting until 2016 because that is when the next Rules of Golf is officially published. Those rules are updated every four years, and that is the next update.
That's the simple part. The hard part of this is figuring out why the rule was needed in the first place.
The new rule, Rule 14-1b, basically states that a player cannot anchor a belly putter or a long putter against ones body when making a stroke. It doesn't make those clubs illegal, just the act of anchoring said club against ones body.
