Boo Weekley made three consecutive birdies in the middle of his round to take the lead at Colonial, and finished with a 4-under 66 on Sunday for his first PGA Tour victory in five years. Weekley never trailed after those birdies on Nos. 8-10, which came about the same time Scott Stallings made double bogey at No. 15 to drop out of the lead at Fort Worth. At 14-under 266, Weekley finished a stroke ahead of Georgia Tech product Matt Kuchar, the second- and third-round leader who closed with a 68.
Defending Colonial champion Zach Johnson, who also won at Hogan’s Alley in 2010, shot 66 to finish third at 12 under. Both of Weekley’s previous wins had been at Harbour Town, in 2007 and 2008.
