The PGA Tour travels to the state of Texas for the Fort Worth Invitational May 24-27, 2018. The event is one of only five invitationals on the PGA Tour and dates all the way back to 1946.
The tournament has had several sponsors over the years. DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, Crowne Plaza, Bank of America, MasterCard and Southwestern Bell to name a few. The sponsors have changed but Colonial Country Club has been the host track since 1946.
Colonial has withstood the test of time and new technology to still be one of the more challenging venues on the PGA Tour. It measures only 7,209 yards and plays to a par 70. What makes the course so difficult are the severe doglegs and tight driving areas. Last year Kevin Kisner won and was only 10-under par.
Ben Hogan won the first Invitational and holds the record with five wins. Other past champions include Sam Snead, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino, Tom Watson, Phil Mickelson and Jordan Spieth.
The PGA Tour stays in Texas for the second consecutive week at the Fort Worth Invitational and the betting field features 13 of the top 30 in the world rankings - not bad! Jordan Spieth, Justin Rose, Rickie Fowler, Jon Rahm and Brooks Koepka are the headliners and the field has a nice blend of young stars as well as grizzled veterans. Continue...
It is a four-day golf event filled with world-class players and non-stop PGA Tour betting action. Many golf bettors have won plenty of cash, with the right skills and judgment both on and off the greens.

It is well known, even to casual golf fans, because of the distinctive red plaid jacket that is awarded to the winner.
