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.

Awesome weekend for FJ.
Great win by ZJ. Even after the penalty. Should be one shot penalty.
Congratulations Zach and FootJoy.
Solid day between duff and Johnson good win for Johnson though.
Great seeing the two FJ boys going at it. Super job by Zach hanging in for the win. It had to be awesome playing with Jason who has been so dominant lately.
Great weekend with Zach and Luke winning and Duff contending. FJ was well represented!
Way to go Zach.
Congratulations to All of the FJ Brand Ambassadors!
Thanks for making it an exciting Weekend for Golf and FJ.
-ICONs for ALL
There sure was a lot of FJ toward the top. Great tourney to watch. Was surprise the duff man didn't pull it out
Great tournament for Zach Johnson and Jason Dufner. I wish Jason had stayed away from the big numbers on Sunday but, still a great win for Zach!
Great tournament to watch.... torn between the two and hated to see the shot on 15 roll into the water for Jason. Both class acts and it was an excellent weekend for FJ.
Congrats ZJ & JD. A very memorable holiday weekend for FJ & Titlelist finishing 1 & 2. Great Golf / Great Guys / Great Company !
Great to see him back to top form and playing well. Always one of my favorites.
Congrats Zach, I have been working with ShotLink on the 18th at Colonial for 10+ years, and this year was quite a horse race, Zach did a great job, glad he had a little cushion there for that little bobble on 18.
