This week the PGA Tour hits Fort Worth Texas for the Dean & Deluca Invitational, to be played over the stunning Colonial Country Club. The history of CCC is quite interesting as it came about through one man’s crusade to bring bent grass greens to Texas.
That man was Mr Marvin Leonard, who was so intent on bringing bent grass greens to his then golf club, the River Crest GC, that he offered to pay for two or three greens to be dug up and reseeded with bent grass. If the experiment did not work, he would then pay for them to be dug up again and reseeded back to Bermuda grass!
The president of River Crest GC at the time grew so weary of Marvin’s insistence about the greens that he told him "Marvin, if you're so sold on Bentgrass, why don't you go build your own golf course and put them in?" That became Marvin Leonard’s Eureka moment and the idea of the Colonial Golf Club was born.
Mr Leonard then commissioned John Bredemus of Texas and Perry Maxwell of Oklahoma to both submit five alternative course designs but after looking at the designs he asked them to submit five more. From the initial designs Marvin Leonard put together a composite course from which sprang the Colonial Country Club.
By 1935 the golf course and the first clubhouse neared completion and less than 10 years later the Colonial Country Club held its first US Open Championship in 1941. By 1946 the Colonial had its own tournament, ‘The Colonial Invitational’ with the inaugural event being won by none other than Ben Hogan, who retained the title the following year and won the event five times in his career.

My tips to win:
I am sticking with a couple of players this week and first up is Jason Dufner 28/1 with BetFred who has had two runner-up finishes here and comes into this week on the back of five Top 15 finishes from seven starts. A final round of 72 at last weeks Byron Nelson put paid to his challenge, but up until that point he was looking in confident mood. Jason obviously enjoys teeing it up at the Colonial CC and I am sure he will be challenging again this week.
The other player is Ryan Palmer 28/1 with BetFred who also has a solid record over the Colonial CC track with three Top 5 finishes in his last five starts here. Ryan has been in great form with three Top 11 placings from his last five starts and although he missed the cut at The Players Championship he had another solid finish last week. Like Dufner the course obviously suits Palmers eye and I expect him to be in the thick of it again this week.
My each-way tip:
Its been a bit of a rollercoaster season for Zach Johnson 40/1 with SportingBet but he has won this event twice and has two other Top 5 finishes and someone with a record like that over a course should never be discounted, no matter what their current form.
Pat Perez 40/1 with Coral is probably having one of his best seasons on the PGA tour this year with a win, a runner-up and a couple of Top 5 finishes, in fact he has only been outside the Top 25 five times from thirteen starts and one of those was because of a withdrawal due to his surgery last year. Pat has a couple of Top 10s here and in his current form I think these are great odds for the South African.
Another player that has had a bit of a rollercoaster season is Brandt Snedeker 50/1 with SportingBet who has five Top 15 finishes but also missed three cuts one of which was at last weeks Byron Nelson. Brandt does have a decent record over this course with a runner-up and a couple of Top 20 finishes and with the way his season has been going so far, he know doubt will be right in the thick of it this week after last weeks disappointment.
As you can see I have decided to put in another each-way tip as I think this is a great price for a past champion and Chris Kirk 55/1 with Bet365 has not only won this event two years ago but has finished inside the Top 20 five of the seven times he has teed it up here he also has a Top 5 in that run as well. Chris may not be having a good year with six missed cuts but a Top 12 finish at The Players Championship in his last outing and his record here, I think you can see why I think these are very good odds.
As always good luck
