It’s Time for the Fall Series Boys and Girls

THE FALL SERIES KICKS OFF this week with the Turning Stone Resort Championship, which has the series’ largest purse at $6 million. The Fall Series is a little bit like Q-school—a bunch of cats trying to play their butts off to keep their cards. If you’re a diehard golf fan you might catch some of the action. Or maybe not.

Following are the five Fall Series events that will be played in October and November.

Turning Stone Resort Championship
JT Shriners Hospitals for Children Open
Frys.com Open
Viking Classic
Children's Miracle Network Classic

Peter Lonard
Brian Bateman
Eric Axley
Joe Ogilvie

I'm definitely going to watch! (If the weather stinks & I can't hit the course.)

Like Heather, I'll also watch...however, it's kind of like watching the All Pro football game the week after the Superbowl.
