The PGA Tour prepares to think pink

For the second year in a row, the PGA Tour's Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial is staging a "pink-out" to help raise funds for the Susan G. Komen foundation's fight against breast cancer. During Saturday's third round of the tournament, all players, officials, tournaments staff and spectators are encouraged to wear pink in support of the cause.

*Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts will donate $100 for every birdie and $500 for every eagle scored by a PGA Tour player on Saturday to the Komen foundation. (The 325 birdies and five eagles made during the same day in 2009 added up to a total of $35,000.) Fans can do their part as well, by simply texting "KOMEN" to 90999 (a $10 charge that goes directly to the research fund will be added to your phone bill).

Write us a comment and let us know what player/announcer you think looks best in fuchsia this weekend. We're thinking Feherty will be hard to beat.
