Sergio King of Silly Season

Sergio Garcia's goal at the start of the year was to win the money title on both sides of the Atlantic.
Sergio GarciaHe'll have to settle for winning the silly-season money list.
Garcia did that in one tournament, earning $2 million from the Nedbank Challenge in South Africa. Davis Love III was the only other guy in seven digits, winning $1.2 million in the Target World Challenge.
Fred Couples, known affectionately as the ``King of the Silly Season,'' was No. 3 on the list with $790,000 from the Skins Game and the Target World Challenge. That's 43 percent of what he made in the regular season.
Tiger Woods failed to win at least $1 million in the silly season for the first time since 1999. He played only his Target World Challenge and was runner-up, earning $700,000. Woods had played at least two silly-season events every year since turning pro in 1996.
