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. A closing three-under-par 67 came on Flesch's 37th birthday, and his winning total was 11-under 269. It was only the second PGA Tour win for Flesch, and it came a week after he withdrew from the Byron Nelson Championship because his back was sore and he was mentally fatigued.

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.

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.

Steve Flesch has spent the last two days having fun at Disney with his family and having a blast on the golf course, so much that he tied the 36-hole scoring record Friday in the National Car Rental Classic at Lake Buena Vista, Fla., and wasn't even aware. That could be about to change.
