FORT WORTH, Texas -- Boo Weekley added another plaid jacket to his wardrobe.
Weekley rallied to win the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial on Sunday after he carded a final-round, 4-under 66 to finish at 14 under.
Weekley, who moved to sixth in the FedExCup standings, earned his third career PGA TOUR win and the plaid jacket that goes to the Colonial champion. Weekley also earned plaid-like jackets in his other two wins, both at the RBC Heritage in 2007 and '08.
"I finally get my name up on that wall with Ben Hogan and some of the greats that have been here," Weekley told CBS. "It's awesome."
Matt Kuchar (68) finished with a birdie on the 18th to finish second at 13 under, followed by two-time Crowne Plaza champion Zach Johnson (66) at 12 under.

FORT WORTH, Texas -- Among the spoils that the winner of Sunday's Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial will receive is an official Scottish royal tartan plaid jacket, a practice that tournament champions here first began receiving in 1952.
Boo Weekley, currently atop the leaderboard at 13 under through 11 holes, already knows what it's like to wear a tartan plaid jacket in the winner's circle.
Weekley's only wins on the PGA TOUR have come at the RBC Heritage, which he won in 2007 and again the next year. The winner of that event gets a jacket utilizing a specially designed Heritage Plaid, which is essentially the Royal Stewart tartan with one yellow bar removed from the cloth.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Behind that aw-shucks demeanor and country charm, Boo Weekley has always been one of the PGA TOUR's better ball-strikers.
When Weekley is healthy and putting well like he's been of late, the combination can be lethal. He finished second at the Tampa Bay Championship in March and made a run at his third PGA TOUR title last week at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.
Weekley picked up where he left off at Quail Hollow on Thursday, too, shooting a round of 68 that left him one shot off the lead. He hit 10 of 14 fairways and 15 greens in regulation, while using 30 putts.
"It was good," Weekley said. "I mean, I'm hitting the ball really well right now and making some putts. I felt like a left a lot of putts out there too. I hit it pretty close on a couple holes. ... I missed four putts inside of seven feet that I felt like I had a pretty good line on, I just didn't have any speed for them."
Weekley, whose best finish in Charlotte is a tie for 11th in 2009, said his game is predicated on confidence in his putter. He made five birdies and dropped just one shot to par on a damp day when Quail Hollow was playing longer than its advertised 7,492 yards.
"You're having to hit hybrids, 4-irons and 5-irons where normally we hit 7-irons or 6-irons," Weekley said. "It's playing long."
Weekley called his round "steady" and said he played "decent" golf. He set the tone on the 10th hole, his first of the day, when he wedged to 23 inches for a tap-in birdie. His lone bogey came at the 12th hole when he couldn't get up and down from the bunker but birdie putts of 4, 24, 22 and 33 feet followed.
"I'm starting to make putts," Weekley said. "I'm starting to see the lines a little better. My speed's gotten a lot better with my putter. I've been working pretty hard at it and finally it's starting to click."
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Phil Mickelson, who has finished 12th or better seven times in nine appearances at Quail Hollow, is one shot off Boo Weekley's lead at the Wells Fargo Championship.
Weekley, who tied for sixth last week in New Orleans, is 4 under through 15 holes while Mickelson has played 12. Also at 3 under are Charlotte resident Robert Karlsson, Nick Watney, Ryan Moore, Jordan Spieth and Derek Ernst.
Mickelson's best finish at Quail Hollow is second in 2010. He had his eye on the big silver trophy that Sunday until Rory McIlroy closed with a 62 and ended up winning by four.

AVONDALE, La. -- Boo Weekley is well on his way to making his 10th consecutive cut -- and maybe more -- after posting a 7-under 65 Thursday afternoon in the opening round of the Zurich Classic at TPC Louisiana.
Weekley's bogey-free round featured five birdies, one eagle ... and a bothersome sinus drip.
"I got that sinus stuff from last week at Hilton Head," Weekley said. "It was the worst I'd ever seen it around there. It looked like somebody had a mustard cloud over the whole golf course and it landed on a bunch of us.
"Other than that, the golf swing is pretty good right now."
After missing the cut at the Sony Open in Hawaii to start the season, Weekley has placed in the money ever since, highlighted by a second-place finish at the Tampa Bay Championship. He has pocketed $849,730 and hopes to eclipse the $1 million mark in New Orleans.
"It could have got real good out there today if some of them putts would have fell early in the round," said Weekley, who drained a 27-foot birdie putt on the 569-yard, par-5 finishing hole. "I left at least four shots out there on the front side, that were good birdie putts. I had good looks in the 10-foot range on 1, 2, 4, 5 and 7."
Lucas Glover also shot 65 in the afternoon to join Weekley in second place, one shot behind first-round leader Ricky Barnes, who tied the course record in the morning with an 8-under 64.
"Any time you can climb up the leader-board in the afternoon, it feels pretty good," said Glover. "I hit it like I've been hitting it and finally putted well. I made the short ones, and it was good."
