Moments after a sit-down interview with four golfing greats, one of them wanted to turn the tables.
"I have a question for you," Hale Irwin said at the Newport Beach Country Club Monday night. "What would you do to improve the Toshiba Classic?"
I couldn't think of anything. I just said that big names in the field always help. But then I thought, hey this doesn't hurt.
I was referring to the new Toshiba Classic Hall of Fame. The inaugural class was introduced at a special ceremony Monday night at Newport Beach Country Club.
Irwin, as well as Jay Haas, Gary McCord and Tom Purtzer showed up as inductees/representatives.
Whoever thought of this thing, what a great idea.
As I said, it certainly doesn't hurt to have a Toshiba Classic Hall of Fame. That's how far this senior golf tournament has come. It's found a home at Newport Beach Country Club, so it's only natural to have it there.
