Golf - Colonial Invitational

One of the great events on the PGA Tour, the Colonial is played each May at the Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas, Usa. Only the top 80 on the previous year's PGA Tour money list are invited by right with others invited to make up a field of 125 (normal tournaments consist of 156 players). The winner is awarded a tartan jacket. In 2003, leading female player Annika Sorenstam took part but missed the cut.
The Colonial is one of only five tournaments given "invitational" status by the PGA Tour.
Each year the reigning champion is asked to invite two young players to taker part in what is termed the "Champion's Choice".
