For the 40th straight year, CBS Sports returns to historic Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas, with third- and final-round coverage of the CROWNE PLAZA INVITATIONAL AT COLONIAL on Saturday, May 25 and Sunday, May 26 (3:00-6:00 PM, ET, both days), live on the CBS Television Network. The Colonial dates back to 1946 and is the longest-running event on the PGA TOUR to be played on the same course, and the 10th oldest overall.
Jim Nantz, three-time Emmy Award-winner and five-time National Sportscaster of the Year, serves as anchor of CBS Sports’ golf coverage. Sir Nick Faldo, winner of six major championships and more than 40 tournaments worldwide, serves as lead analyst. Ian Baker-Finch calls the action at the 17th hole and Gary McCord at the 16th hole.

The live streaming also will be available on the CBS Sports app for the iPhone and iPad, as well as through the CBSSports.com mobile website (m.cbssports.com).The CBS Sports app for Android will feature video on demand.

Johnson collected his eighth PGA TOUR win last year with a one-stroke victory over Jason Dufner. Johnson is among a strong field that includes last week’s HP Byron Nelson champion Sang-Moon Bae, who with a win at the Colonial would become only the second player to win the “DFW Double.” Also slated to compete are Matt Kuchar, Jim Furyk, Rickie Fowler, Hunter Mahan, Bo Van Pelt, Stewart Cink, Ryo Ishikawa, Tim Clark, Charl Schwartzel, Angel Cabrera, David Toms, Camilo Villegas, Kevin Streelman, Charley Hoffman, Davis Love III, Justin Leonard, Ricky Barnes, Kyle Stanley, John Huh, Freddie Jacobson, Aaron Baddeley, Chez Reavie, Boo Weekley, Trevor Immelman, Bob Estes, Charlie Wi, Y.E.
