Jason Dufner leads the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial by just one shot, he is being shadowed by playing partner Zach Johnson. Jason had a third round of -4 under par 66, and Zach beat him on the day with -5 under par 65 for his round. The pair will tee it up together again tomorrow for the final round, on Pentecost Sunday. I am guessing that Zach will be wearing red again for the last round, it could be a good omen for the faithful Christian.
The next closest player is Tom Gillis at -7 under par, meaning Jason Dufner and Zach Johnson will essentially be in a match play competition for the final 18 holes. I will look forward to it, it should be a great contest and we should see some great golf.
Unfortunately for the rest of the field, including Tom Gillis, they will just be playing for the minor places. Rickie Fowler struggled in the third round managing to come home at even par, for a tournament total of -4 under.
