The former Senior PGA Tour, now the PGA Champions Tour, is getting tougher on its players this year. They are now "encouraged" to walk during official tournament events, instead of riding a golf cart. Oh, sure, players can still cruise along in cushy carts if they desire, but the tour is clearly trying to rid itself of "senior" connotations. Even the 60-and-over Georgia-Pacific Super Seniors has changed its name to the Grand Champions. What's next? Changing the names of the tournament?

Noaki Schwartz Dennis Walters may not be able to hit a golf ball like he used to, but the dreams he inspires among children travel far beyond the length of any fairway. "Dream is a word I want you to think of -- not just today, but every day of your life," he said Tuesday to a group of at-risk teenagers attending a golf clinic at the Toshiba Senior Classic in Newport Beach. More than 100 students from the county Department of Education -- many of whom had never set foot on a golf course -- came to pick up some golf tips from Walters, and learned a few life lessons in the process.

-- Photos and question by Young Chang We asked children at Harbor View Elementary School in Corona del Mar: What did you do during your vacation? I went to the desert with my friend, and we got to go play golf, and we got to ride in a golf cart, and I got to drive it. And we saw movies. I saw "102 Dalmatians" and "The Emperor's New Groove." And I went to the aquarium. We saw so many and my favorite was the shark. -- Gabriella Angela Dichiro, 8 Newport Beach I went to the aquarium with [Gabriella]

Deepa Bharath Jo Pat Williams Sr. wears only four Toshiba tournament pins on his red baseball cap. There's obviously no room for nine. Williams has volunteered at the Toshiba Senior Classic golf tournament since it started at the Mesa Verde Golf Club, he said. "I always worked hole No. 2," Williams said. "It's a busy, busy place." The 67-year-old Huntington Beach man is one of about 950 volunteers who form the lifeline of the tournament.

As Memorial Day weekend once again ushered in the summer crowds, Balboa Peninsula residents prepared for increased traffic and parking problems. Sunday, the three-mile trek along Newport Boulevard from where the 55 freeway ends in Costa Mesa, to the Newport Pier, turned into a 30-minute commute as beach-going vehicles battled one another for a spot on the strip. Sheryl Alves and Brian Pocock moved to the peninsula just over two years ago. They learned quickly that if you want to get around on the peninsula, a beach cruiser is the only sensible way to roll.

A Corona del Mar High School security guard says Newport Beach City Councilwoman Leslie Daigle threatened to have him deported or fired for trying to enforce a school rule, an allegation Daigle denies. Daigle said Thursday the guard misunderstood her response when he ordered her off the school track last spring. "He said to me, 'I'm going to kick you out,' and I mimicked what he said to me," she said. Daigle said it took her by surprise to be told she couldn't jog on the track.

NEWPORT BEACH - The dramatic finish of the 13th annual Jones Cup gave new meaning to the term up and down Wednesday at Newport Beach Country Club. The five-player team from Mesa Verde Country Club led most of the day, had a four-stroke advantage after 11 holes, and was up by three shots when it posted one birdie on the 18th hole, after which Mesa Verde head professional Tom Sargent drove his golf cart to his car to put his clubs in the trunk. "I was thinking about a Corona," Sargent said of the expected victory celebration that never came.

Perhaps it was divine intervention at this year's Mesa Verde Golf Classic hosted by Costa Mesa United. I had the pleasure to work alongside so many selfless people. I arrived at 6 a.m. and saw not only our Estancia Boosters and members of our City Council, but also football players and cheerleaders from Estancia and Costa Mesa high schools. The coming together of both teams united as one to support an event really shows how our community can pull together for a great cause. It all benefits our future, so why not give back?

Newport Beach resident Darwin Pearson bought what he thought was a six-seat golf cart to drive his kids to school in from the Costa Mesa-based Electric Cart Warehouse at a local swap meet last summer. Now he and other customers claim the company took them for a ride. Pearson claims a salesman for the Electric Cart Warehouse told him the cart, which he purchased for $10,000 over Labor Day weekend, would go as fast as 25 to 30 mph, and could be licensed to drive on some local streets.

When people check out Get Pluged ‘N — a new upscale bazaar of sorts set to open later this month — Darren Davidson knows they can get a bit confused. It’ll be part luxury sports car rental spot, part boutique shopping space, part mountain bike and custom golf cart store and rental. And, oh yeah, it’s sort of a club, too. In other words, the sales pitch can be perplexing. “It started as a bike store,” Davidson said. “Due to the nature of the building and being able to work with some of the local people, it grew by itself.

Paul Hahn has never performed CPR, and until this month, he had only seen a defibrillator used on television. But on Aug. 4, Newport Beach Country Club's head golf pro became a hero when he used a defibrillator to bring a heart-attack victim to life on the eighth hole of the club's golf course. The man has since recovered. "The fact that he came back was probably a miracle," Hahn said. Although the odds of surviving full cardiac arrest are low, they increase depending on how quickly CPR and a defibrillator are used, Newport Beach Fire EMS manager Cathy Ord said.
