NEWPORT BEACH ? It wasn?t hard to see who the fans were pulling for and for the first time in a long time, Mark O?Meara found himself as an underdog.

It looked good after the second round. O?Meara was tied for the lead with Bernhard Langer and while Langer was faltering, O?

NEWPORT BEACH — After 25 holes of golf Sunday at the Newport Beach Country Club, Jay Haas was not downtrodden. True, Haas couldn’t quite defend his Toshiba Classic title, losing in the seventh playoff hole to Bernhard Langer after Haas couldn’t make a bouncing, three-foot birdie putt that broke right on No. 18. Haas’ previous shot, from the rough off the left side of the green, nearly won him the title before lipping out....

It was the last hole of the day, and front-runner Bernhard Langer was seemingly taking forever. He’d hit his tee shot into the gallery, to the far right of the green, and had taken two drops. He tried to place the ball, but it rolled ever so slightly, until finally, he just got some grass behind it to make it stay. “It just kept moving,” Langer said.

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)

NEWPORT BEACH — It was almost as if mother nature knew Bernhard Langer and Jay Haas were going to need the extra 45 minutes it took to determine a winner in the 2008 Toshiba Classic. Daylight savings time came in handy for the seven-hole playoff that lasted until Langer sunk a birdie putt four inches from the hole on the 18th to win the title and the $255,000 purse Sunday. It was his second victory since joining the Champions Tour. Haas was in position to push it to an eighth hole after landing a chip shot from the back bunker.

It’s been written and warned to many that money is the root of all evil. But not in Bernhard Langer’s life. The Hall of Fame golfer’s success can be traced back to the almighty dollar, or rather Deutsche Mark. Growing up in Germany, Langer usually tried his best to gain some what he called, “pocket money.” Whatever he could earn would help, he thought, as his mother and father worked hard to support the family. Dad worked as a bricklayer and mom was almost always busy as a waitress at a nearby restaurant.
