Steve Flesch has played golf with snakes, and maybe eaten some too. You never know what's under that sauce in Manila or Calcutta. Flesch nearly gave up professional golf six times. Those would be the six times Flesch didn't make it to the finals of the PGA Tour qualifying tournament. Year after year, Flesch would come to Kentucky from sweating it out on the Asian Tour--literally sweating, until his pants left puddles in his shoes--and then bomb out in qualifying school.

Steve Flesch, who missed the cut in half of the first 20 PGA Tour events he entered this year, continued his resurgence Sunday, shooting a one-over-par 73 to beat Michael Allen by two shots and win the inaugural Turning Stone Resort Championship at Verona, N.Y. It was the left-hander's second PGA Tour victory of the year, and the $1.08-million payday boosted his earnings for 2007 to $2.2 million to vault him from 70th on the money list to 25th.

Steve Flesch, the only golfer with four consecutive rounds in the 60s, wasn't hurt by a late bogey and won the Colonial on Sunday by a stroke over Chad Campbell.

It didn't take Steve Flesch long to get an idea of what it's like to play against Tiger Woods. On the first hole, he stood to the side with his arms crossed as Woods rolled in a 12-foot birdie putt to trim the deficit to one stroke. After they both hit driver on No. 2, Flesch found himself standing 63 yards behind Woods in the fairway. At the end of the day, however, Flesch was ahead where it mattered. He held his own against the No.
