What It Takes To Win - Crowne Plaza

By the final day of competition, the field at the Crowne Plaza Invitational had already been whittled down to nineteen players, and Boo Weekley was right in the mix.  By the end of the day, Weekley was able to accomplish something he hasn't done in five years, winning a PGA Tour event.  With a final score of -14 and some great ball striking, he was able to hold off Matt Kuchar (-13), Zach Johnson (-12), Scott Stallings, John Rollings and Matt Every (-11).

Here's a closer look at the four round from Boo Weekley's tournament:
  • Round 1: 67 (3 under) - 5 Birdies, 11 Pars, 2 Bogeys
  • Round 2: 67 (3 under) - 7 Birdies, 8 Pars, 2 Bogeys, 1 Double Bogey
  • Round 3: 66 (4 under) - 6 Birdies, 10 Pars, 2 Bogeys
  • Round 4: 66 (4 under) - 6 Birdies, 10 Pars, 2 Bogeys
  • Total: 14 under par - 24 Birdies, 39 Pars, 8 Bogeys, 1 Double Bogey
Consistency seemed to be the theme of Weekley's play this week, shooting 67, 67, 66, 66.  "I finally get my name on that wall with Ben Hogan and some of the greats that have played here. It's awesome" Weekley said after the event had concluded.

Looking deeper into Weekley's tournament stats, only further demonstrates his excelent and consistent play, hitting over 70% of the fairways from the tee box and finding 75% of the greens in regulation...

  • Avg Driving Distance: 298.7 yards
  • Driving Accuracy: 71.43%
  • Greens in Regulation: 75%
  • Avg Putts Per Round: 28 (Avg 1.56 putts/hole)

Congrats to Boo Weekley on fighting his way to an overdue victory at the Crowne Plaza Invitational.
