Fort Worth, Texas---Lift, lug and quiet, the creed of a PGA tour caddy. Ranked 35th in the world to start, Zack Johnson broke Colonial's tournament record, won his third tournament in the Lone Star State and headed back to Iowa .

Needing to calculate every nasty turn and bumpity-bump, caddy Damon Green packed the buckboard and aimed it toward the next tournament sight in Ohio .

Luck, no way you say; Brian Davis went 54 for 54 inside of eight feet until an announcer, needing something to say during a late day rain delays, jinxed the Brit. He spun out two at the finish, good enough for a runner-up finish.

Brilliant but hardly noticed, Jeff Overton and Ben Crane tied for third at -17.

K.J. Choi forgot about his Saturday stumble. On cruise control and headed for a possible 59, a collection of bad decisions and unneeded risks left him with a quadruple bogey at his 54th hole. He didn’t pout; and never blamed his caddy. His closing 68 today tied him for 13th.
