Johnson wins Colonial after duel with Dufner

FORT WORTH, Texas - Zach Johnson outdueled fellow-American Jason Dufner, the PGA Tour’s hottest player, posting a final-round 72 on Sunday to win the Colonial Invitational golf tournament.

Johnson walked off the final green believing he had won by three strokes after sinking a 4-foot par putt, but he ended up being penalized two strokes for not remarking his ball after moving it out of the path of Dufner’s putt.

That still gave 2007 Masters champion Johnson a one-shot victory with a 72-hole total of 12-under-par 268 for his first tour win since capturing the Colonial two years ago. Dufner, winner of two of his last three PGA starts, registered a 74 for 269.
