with tour players rather than additionally work as an organization for club professionals. As part of the PGA Tour, Crowne
Plaza Invitational is one of the most important invitational tournaments in professional golf from year to year. The tournament
made its debut in 1946 and in the decades since its founding has become an integral part of the PGA Tour as well as one of
the most popular and watched tournaments in all of golf. The 2013 tournament provided the winner, Boo Weekley, with a purse
of $1,152,000, but the real winners were the golf fans who poured onto the grounds of Colonial Country Club to see the action
first-hand as the top golfers in the world battled their way up the leaderboard.
