ZJ does it for Caddie's late father at Colonial

Just 10 days after Damon Green's father passed away from stomach cancer, he was back on the bags with his pro Zach Johnson as they won yet another Colonial Title at Fort Worth.

"He wanted to be here, he felt like his dad wanted him to be here," Johnson about his caddie of 10 years.

"I think he's the one that deserves this one more than I do. His courage and certainly his strength to get through last week and then work, and work well this week, to stay focused somehow. That's really commendable."

In fact, so caught up by the emotion of the victory was Johnson that he very nearly lost it all after incurring a bizarre two-stroke penalty: Johnson forgot to properly remark his ball before his final putt.

Still, his final 5-foot putt was still enough for a one shot win over Jason Dufner, and take the title that he had won back at Hogan's Alley in 2010.

"There's a number of adjectives I'm calling myself right now. And lucky would be the biggest one," Johnson said. "Blessed would be another one, humbled would be another one. It's an honor to put this jacket on once. ... I'm in shock I got it twice."

After Dufner, Tommy Gainey was third at 7 under a stroke ahead of Jim Furyk.
