Fort Worth, Texas — There are 72 players in the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial field, but when the sun rises on Sunday's final round, only two will be relevant.
Barring some sort of historic meltdown, either Jason Dufner or Zach Johnson will slide into a plaid winners jacket tomorrow afternoon, after the two distanced themselves from the pack on Saturday to set up a two-man showdown at Colonial.
Considering how both have played recently, it seems fitting that two of the hottest golfers in the sport will go head-to-head for one of the oldest trophies on the PGA Tour. On a day where blustery conditions kept the rest of the field from making a move, Dunfer and Johnson nearly matched each other shot-for-shot.
Johnson, currently 14-under after a third round 65, managed to cut into Dufner's two-shot lead early in the day, going birdie-birdie on his first two holes to cut it to one, which is exactly where things ended up when both players shook hands on the final green.
