Zach Johnson held off fellow FJ staffer, Jason Dufner to win the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial Country Club in Forth Worth, TX. Dufner, coming off two wins in the past month, had the upper hand beginning the round with a one stroke lead over Johnson.
Johnson in DryJoys Tour MyJoys and StaSof, struck first birdieing the second hole to Dufner's bogey. Dufner (FJ Apparel and FJ ICON) fought back with birdies at five and six to retake the lead. Johnson remained steady and both players headed to the back nine tied.
On the par five 11th Johnson birdied to Dufner's bogey creating a two shot lead for the Iowa native. Johnson extended the lead on the 15th hole to three shots. Johnson would not relinquish his lead eventually winning by one stroke over Dufner.
“In some respects, I kind of feel like I took down a lion,” Johnson said of Dufner post round, adding, "He’s been at the top of his game.”
This is Johnson's eighth PGA Tour victory and first since winning the Crown Plaza Invitational in 2010. The win also moves Johnson to third in the FedEx Cup race while Dufner remains at the top.

Beginning the day two strokes back at the Crowne Plaza Invitational, both Adam Scott and Jason Dufner shot matching rounds of four under-par 66 to enter a sudden death playoff.
The two major champions then faced off on the first playoff hole and split with par. On the following playoff hole, Scott sank a 14-footer off the back edge of the green for birdie. Dufner (FJ Icon MyJoys) matched the birdie and the players move to the 18th for the third time on Sunday. Scott then struck a 124-yard approach to 5-feet and rolled in the birdie putt for the victory.
Adam Scott attained the world number one position earlier this week and solidifies his position at the top with the victory.
Scott relied on the new D.N.A. golf shoe and StaSof golf glove en route to victory.
