Look at two of the first three winners on the Champions Tour and it is the usual name at the top. Bernhard Langer, who is defending champion of next week’s Toshiba Classic, won the season opening event, the Mitsubishi Electric Championship in Hawaii, defeating Andy Bean by a stroke. It was typical Langer. He trailed Brad Byrant by two strokes with 14 holes to play, but didn’t panic. Instead he calmly made a birdie on the 14th to take the lead and made a couple of key par saves to hold off Bean and Bryant.

NEWPORT BEACH ? After a bogey on No. 9 at Newport Beach Country Club, Eduardo Romero told his caddie, ?We have to wake up. We can win this tournament, but not like this.? That statement made sense. After all, the Argentinian is nicknamed, ?El Gato,? and the cat is known to have nine lives. Romero responded in a big way after the ninth hole, sinking three straight birdies. Now you can call him El Campeon, which means The Champion. Romero won the 15th annual Toshiba Classic Sunday, when his three-under-par 68 final round gave him an 11-under-202 finish for a one-stroke victory ahead of Mark O?

NEWPORT BEACH — Bernhard Langer was at it again Friday. He was wowing the gallery as he took his swings at Newport Beach Country Club. He’s here defending his title in the Toshiba Classic. From the looks of the first round, he’s doing it quite well. There hasn’t been a repeat winner at the Toshiba Classic. Langer is looking to change that. After all, he did say that records are meant to be broken, and that was said a month before the tournament began.

Going into the final round of the 20th Toshiba Classic, Fred Couples didn't think he could win the tournament because Bernhard Langer had been so hot. But on Sunday at Newport Beach Country Club, Couples grabbed momentum on his back nine to give himself an opportunity. Still a victory wasn't close to being secured because at one point nine golfers had held or shared the lead. Six were tied for the lead with three holes remaining. But Couples shot a five-under-par 66 in his final round and finished at 15-under 198 to become the second player in Toshiba Classic history to win the event twice, as he won it in 2010.

Kenny Perry described Bernhard Langer as the type of golfer who gets under his skin because the 56-year-old German works so hard. Langer is the type who pushes others to be great, Perry said. Langer would rather just continue to push his way past the field at the 20th Toshiba Classic. He maintained his two-shot lead Saturday at Newport Beach Country Club, compensating for two bogeys with a stretch of four birdies out of five holes on the back nine to shoot five-under-par 66 in the second round.

NEWPORT BEACH - Mark Calcavecchiasaid he could handle the cold pretty well on Saturday and he was all right with the wind. Throw in rain and the combination was wicked to Calcavecchia, but he still went into the clubhouse on top after the second day at the Toshiba Classic. On the third and final day, the conditions were still windy, just not as cold as the day before at Newport Beach Country Club. The almost sunny skies on Sunday are what got to the former British Open champion.

NEWPORT BEACH - Bobby Clampett had become accustomed to life behind a microphone and in front of the camera. Somewhere amid his broadcasting for CBS, he thought about going back to the game, playing on the Champions Tour when he turned 50. He is now fulfilling a need he had. At the 18th Toshiba Classic in Newport Beach, some of his best work was on display Friday. Clampett, 51, who had been away from playing competitive golf for 15 years, shot a six-under-par 65 and is tied for the lead with Olin Browne and Bernhard Langer after the first round at Newport Beach Country Club.

NEWPORT BEACH — Bernhard Langer has seen some of his peers go from the Champions Tour to the PGA Tour and achieve success. But the 53-year-old does not want to follow suit because he thinks "bouncing back and forth doesn't do a whole lot. " The two-time Masters champion (1985, 1993) also enjoys the Champions Tour for golfers 50 and older. Who could blame him? He has been ruling the tour for the last three years. Last year, Langer, a native of Germany, became the first player on the Champions Tour to win the Jack Nicklaus Trophy (player of the year)

Tom Kite doesn't mince words. He keeps reality in focus. We are fallen people living in a fallen world. Adversity will come, along with triumph. The key, according to Kite, is not straying too far in the wrong direction. In golf, that could refer to a cut instead of a slice. Kite's career tells the story of consistency. In a little more than four years, Kite has made the cut in all but one of the 106 Champions Tour events he has entered. He has the best current streak of years (11)
