Gary McCord has elicited the help of a nuclear physicist in preparation of Tuesday's closest to the pin competition off the top of the Newport Beach Marriott. McCord, the 1999 Toshiba Senior Classic champion, along with Fuzzy Zoeller, John Jacobs and David Feherty, will each hit a ball from the top of the hotel -- a height of 162 feet and distance of 115 yards -- to the par-4 second green at Newport Beach Country Club. "We are going to raise the roof, so to speak," McCord said.

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.

With a brisk breeze clearing the air the day before, all of Orange County was in clear view Tuesday, and from my vantage point, I could see the Pacific Ocean glistening on the horizon. That vantage point was the roof of the 16-story Newport Beach Marriott, where the fourth annual Shot from the Top took place with a view nothing short of majestic. “There is not a better panoramic view in all of Newport Beach,” said Laura Mettler, the hotel’s director of sales and marketing.

NEWPORT BEACH ? Gary McCord, who's been known to crack wise at times, brought his arsenal on Tuesday. Sizing up his shot from the top of the Newport Beach Marriott, the PGA Champions Tour veteran asked if he'd be better off throwing the ball toward the Newport Beach Country Club's second green. Then he whipped out the rangefinder from his bag and tried to measure the distance, talking about terminal velocity and barometric pressure. But when all the talking was done, all he needed was a swing of the club.

Bryce Alderton Before hitting a shot from the most elevated tee of all, professional golfer Fuzzy Zoeller made a prediction. "If we do a good job, this might catch on," said Zoeller, who joined Gary McCord, David Feherty and Mark Lye atop the Newport Beach Marriott on Tuesday morning in the first closest-to-the-pin competition hit from the top of a hotel during Toshiba Senior Classic week. Zoeller did his part, hitting a 3/4 sand wedge -- his first of three shots -- within 4 feet, 2 inches of the pin at Newport Beach Country Club's par-4 second hole to edge his fellow competitors and win $2,000 for his favorite charity -- Fuzzy's Kids.

S.J. CAHN Tuesday at the Toshiba Senior Classic provided this piece of useless until you desperately need it information: A golf ball hit from 162 feet above you is nearly impossible to see. Of two dozen or so balls hit off the roof of the Newport Beach Marriott to the 2nd green at the Newport Beach Country Club, I managed to see just one, and it just briefly. It just so happened to be hit by Daily Pilot sports reporter Bryce Alderton. He was one of the four lucky media guys who were 16 stories up with a quartet of pros enjoying what will have to go down as one of the tournament's highlights this year.

Tony Dodero Golfing aficionados and fans were treated to a morning of ribald humor and some unprintable jokes Tuesday in what has become a staple of the weeklong festivities surrounding the annual Toshiba Senior Classic golf tournament -- the annual Breakfast with the Champions. The breakfast this year featured keynote speakers Gary McCord and David Feherty, who normally are employed as color commentators for CBS Sports golf coverage. The pair kept the Balboa Bay Club crowd of about 400 in stitches with a litany of one-liners, scatological references and good-natured ribbing of amateur and professional golfers.

BRYCE ALDERTON This year's Toshiba Senior Classic Champions Breakfast on Tuesday morning of tournament week will bring back memories for at least one Newport Beach Country Club member. Gary McCord, the 1999 Toshiba Senior Classic champion and current golf analyst for CBS, and colleague David Feherty, will undoubtedly delight the crowd gathered March 15 at the Balboa Bay Club with their witty humor and wisecracks. Three days later during Friday's first round, McCord will stroll up the ninth fairway at Newport Beach Country Club and come within shouting distance of a childhood friend and teammate.
