After a surprising win by Brendon Todd last week at the Byron Nelson Championship, the PGA Tour makes the short trip from Irving, TX to Fort Worth, TX this weekend for the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, a Par-70, 7,204-yard course. The tournament is 1-of-5 invitationals on the tour, as the field will be reduced to just 125 players. Boo Weekley was able to pull out a close win last season at this tourney with a score of 14-under, defeating Matt Kuchar by one stroke and Zach Johnson (a two-time winner here) by two strokes. Phil Mickelson is the other recent two-time winner at this event, being victorious in both 2000 and 2008. Adam Scott moved to the No. 1 spot in the World Golf Rankings this past week and will be playing just his eighth tournament of this year when he hits the course on Thursday. Let’s take a look at a few players in the field who have an opportunity to grab a win this weekend.

Golfers to Watch

Zach Johnson (14/1): Johnson has been spectacular at this event, winning twice (2010 and 2012) while finishing in third place last season and fourth in 2011. He has been tremendous on Sundays in those four years, putting up a scoring average of 66.8 in that time. This season he is ranked fifth on tour in driving accuracy (71.8%) and is seventh in scoring average (70.0).

Matt Kuchar (12/1): The player with the lowest odds this week is the 35-year-old Kuchar. It is hard to not put a bet right now on Kuchar who is third in the FedEx Cup standings, fourth in the World Golf Rankings and has placed in the top-7 in five of his past six tournaments this year. He has the best scoring average (69.4) on tour this year thanks in part to shooting a combined 22-under on par-4’s this year (best on tour) and gaining .490 strokes from putting (14th on tour). Kuchar is in great shape to earn his second win of the season come Sunday.                                                                                                                    

Jim Furyk (15/1): Furyk is playing just as well as Kuchar right now after posting back-to-back runner-up performances in his past two tournaments. He has finished in the top-7 in four of the past six times out and is first in scrambling on tour this year (69.2%) while also having a driving accuracy of 69.7% (10th on tour). Furyk has a good chance at his 17th career PGA victory, which would tie him for the 48th most in tour history.                                                                                                       

John Huh (40/1): Huh will turn 24 years old on Wednesday and hopes to grab his second career PGA victory as a gift. After missing the cut in 6-of-8 tournaments between late January and The Masters, Huh placed third in the RBC Heritage and 16th last week at the Byron Nelson Championship. In his first two attempts at this particular event, he placed fifth (2012) and 11th (2013), and should make a push in this year’s installment.

Brice Garnett (200/1): Garnett has been one of the better rookies on tour this season and has made the cut in 14-of-17 events while placing in the top-25 twice. He is coming off a 29th-place finish at the Byron Nelson Championship, but he likes playing in Texas with his best finish coming at the Houston Open last month when he placed tied for seventh.
