Richard Dunn NEWPORT BEACH - If sponsors are going to stick out more carrots for players on the Senior PGA Tour to fetch, you can bet they'll play with a little more hunger. There's no sin in chasing the big bucks in competition, and Charles Schwab, one of America's leading financial institutions, is making sure of that. New on the Senior PGA Tour this year is the Charles Schwab Cup, in which the winner receives a $1 million tax-deferred annuity from Charles Schwab & Co. Total annuity payments of $2.1 million will be awarded to the top-five finishers in the season-long Charles Schwab Cup that involves all 38 official Senior Tour stops in 2001, including the Toshiba Senior Classic at Newport Beach Country Club.

Richard Dunn NEWPORT BEACH - The Toshiba Senior Classic, which suffered a final-round rainout last year in Week 9 and is expected to battle the weather again this year, could be moved back to Week 10 on the Senior PGA Tour schedule for 2002. The Senior Tour will not announce next year's schedule until July, but there's a possibility it could include an additional stop in Mexico, which would fill Week 9 on the tour calendar and push back the three ensuing California stops a week.
