Fall Series making a good season for some players

Steve Flesch, who recharged his career with two victories since August, says, "It's amazing how two good weeks can change your whole year."

Some other PGA Tour players can say that about the seven weeks of the PGA Tour's Fall Series, any one of which, if good, could lead to job security.

The series enters its fourth week at the Frys.com Open, which begins Thursday in Las Vegas. Already, five players have moved into the top 125 in earnings, which gives them exempt status for next year if they can hold that position for the next four weeks.

Moving in are Bill Haas, Alex Cejka, Johnson Wagner, Jesper Parnevik and Michael Allen. Moving out are D.J. Trahan, Joe Durant, Bob Heintz, Doug LaBelle and Steve Allan.

"They're getting what they asked for, a quest for the card," Flesch says. "Really, the main reason to play these tournaments is to earn money for your card."

The Fall Series events, which come after the FedExCup schedule, do not award FedExCup points and Ryder Cup points. Victories aren't recognized by Augusta National, so a winner does not qualify for The Masters.
