TOSHIBA SENIOR CLASSIC WEEK

If watching a little white ball be putted, driven and slammed down the

green is your idea of a wonderful time, this is the week for you. The

2001 Toshiba Senior Classic tour will begin Monday with player practice

rounds, and it will continue through March 4, with the final round of

championship play.

All of the golfing events will take place at the Newport Beach Country

Club, 1600 E. Coast Highway. The inaugural tournament, which George

Archer won in 1995, was the only one to have been held at a different

location.

All net proceeds from the Toshiba Senior Classic go to charity. This

year, the primary beneficiary is Hoag Hospital's planned Women's

Pavilion.

Senior Tour legend Tom Watson will speak Tuesday at the annual

community breakfast. This is Watson's first appearance at the classic.
