LA QUINTA, Calif. -- They are two guys going in opposite directions.

Looking back to just three or four years ago, it's hard to believe Brad Fritsch of Manotick, Ont., and Camilo Villegas of Colombia would find themselves here at PGA Tour qualifying school, in the same group Sunday, their careers -- at least for the next year -- apparently going to different places.

Fritsch, the 35-year-old Canadian, had a 6-under par 66 Sunday to move up to a tie for 11th with one round to go at Q-school. He already has his card for 2013 after finishing 18th on the Web.com Tour this year, but is trying to improve his status in the Tour's pecking order by finishing at least in the top 17 here.
