Visitors’ 10 most-asked questions about the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial:1How do I watch a golf tournament in person? There are two options, basically. One, find a comfortable spot and stay there while the golfers parade past. Two, follow your favorite golfer around the course, although in some places you won’t have a front-row spot at the ropes. With both options, on-course leader boards are your friends. 2How do I know when my favorite golfers tee off? Other than reading the Star-Telegram, either in print, online or on your tablet? When you enter the gates, tournament workers will hand you a pairings sheet that has tee times for all golfers and a course map. 3I hear Colonial referred to as a “traditional” golf course. What does that mean? Traditional refers to older-style golf courses. Those courses tend to be a little shorter, with tighter, bending fairways and small greens that require more precise shots than mere gripping and ripping. Newer courses tend to have more stadium-styled seating, with hills built around greens for spectators. Traditional courses tend to have more shade trees. 4Why do so many female spectators wear high heels around the golf course? Sorry, but we have yet to come up with a good answer for that question. 5Can I get autographs from players? Yes, before and after golfers complete their rounds. There is an autograph area behind the 18th green that is along the players’ path to the locker room. Hanging out near the upper practice green (near the first tee and up the hill from the 10th tee) is a good spot. Players have more time for signing during practice rounds and pro-ams early in the week. 6What can I bring onto the course? No backpacks, large purses, packages or bags; firearms; clipboards; cameras/video cameras (Thursday through Saturday); and coolers, glass containers. beverages or alcohol. Folding chairs are permitted along gallery rope-lines. PGA Tour policies allow spectators to carry cellphones onto the course. However, to prevent having your phone confiscated, keep it on silent mode, do not use it to take pictures or video beginning Thursday, and make and receive calls only in designated cellphone areas. 7Who are some of the big names playing this year? Defending and two-time champion Zach Johnson was among the players who had committed at press time. Among the returning champions are Tom Lehman, Corey Pavin, Rory Sabbatini and David Toms. Ultra-popular John Daly, Jim Furyk and Davis Love III are playing, as is Hall of Famer Vijay Singh. Also of note are the two champions’ choices allowed into their field based on their selection by past winners: Franklin Corpening, a graduate of Paschal High School and TCU, and Jordan Spieth, the 19-year-old from Dallas who already has three top-10 finishes on tour this season. 8Where can I go to avoid the heat and/or rain? The first place of refuge is the Crowne Plaza Lounge, near the 10th fairway. The extremely popular frozen margarita machines are located there. The second is the clubhouse, behind the 18th green and 17th tee. 9How do I get to the party hole? That would be hole No. 13. Option 1: After entering the public entrances near the second hole, walk through the Crowne Plaza lobby and up the sidewalk. At the fork in the sidewalk, stay to the left so that you’re walking upstream alongside the first fairway. Behind the sixth green, take the sidewalk to the right and walk the length of the ninth hole. At the ninth tee, turn left and walk alongside the 12th hole until you reach No. 13. Option 2: After entering the public entrances near the second hole, ask anyone, “How do I get to 13?” 10I have more than 10 questions. What should I do?
