This year, Roberts is again in the running for the Schwab Cup. He’s fifth, but now it’s Scott Hoch, who is out in front with two wins out of four events. Hoch, who will compete in his second straight Toshiba Classic, also has two top-10 finishes.
Haas is in eighth for the Schwab Cup and he knows it will be a tough climb. But maybe he will look to the Toshiba Classic to help his cause. It certainly aided his successful year in 2007. He won the Toshiba Classic and set a new tournament record, breaking Hale Irwin’s previous mark by two strokes with a 19-under-par 194 (65-64-65).
Now, again at Newport Beach Country Club, Haas will go for another unprecedented feat. He will try to be the Toshiba Classic’s first back-to-back winner.
