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 — Two years ago, when Brad Bryant was a rookie on the PGA Champions Tour, the veterans told him, don't miss the Toshiba Classic. They also said it would be a highlight of the tour. "I didn't realize it was going to be the highlight for me," Bryant said, while addressing the media at Newport Beach Country Club Tuesday. The results of a breakout performance, which led to a breakout year, were still being cherished by Bryant Tuesday. He reminisced of 2006, while being a representative for the Toshiba Classic, which will be March 5-11 at NBCC.

Richard Dunn NEWPORT BEACH - It wasn't all completely safe on the golf course Saturday as paramedics made two trips to Hoag Hospital from the Toshiba Senior Classic at Newport Beach Country Club. One incident involved a man complaining of chest pains, and the other call came after a woman was struck by a golf ball in the knee on the par-3 hole No. 8. J.C. Snead's errant tee shot reportedly hit a lady in the gallery, then he autographed the ball and gave it to her. According to the paramedics at the scene, both people taken to Hoag checked out OK. The Newport Beach Police Department was called about a man reportedly scalping tickets at the front entrance of the golf tournament Saturday.

Breakfast With A Champion is an annual event during Toshiba Classic week in Newport Beach. The event is presented by the Allergan Foundation. Allergan, the pharmaceutical giant, is known for skin enhancements, including Botox. So every year, there is at least one joke about that, usually in relation to Newport Beach and Orange County. Tom Kite, the World Golf Hall of Famer and featured speaker Tuesday morning, joked about it too, but referred to the tour he's playing on. "The Champions Tour is our Botox," Kite said of the tour for golfers 50 and older.

NEWPORT BEACH — Though John Cook lives less than a few minutes from Newport Beach Country Club, this will be his first foray at the Toshiba Classic and the 50-year-old couldn’t be more anxious. His debut here could be a fulfilling one. It is a traditional layout that Cook’s game seems to thrive on. “You have to shape shots, there are small greens,” Cook said. “You have to land the ball in different little areas to get the ball to feed to the hole.

The Toshiba Classic begins Monday at the Newport Beach Country Club. The 13th year of the televised PGA Champions Tour event raises big money for Hoag Hospital as well as other charities. It is also a major community event supporting local businesses and bringing out the crowd for seven days of great golf and plenty of social interaction. Big hitters and corporate sponsors will line the country club fairways with elaborate white hospitality tents, offering friends and associates the best front-row seating for a tournament that will see the return of 2006 champion Brad Bryant defending his title against a field of great competitors, including Hale Irwin, Jay Haas, Peter Jacobsen, Ben Crenshaw, Mark O'Meara and Tom Kite . Also expected to play are Craig Stadler, Fuzzy Zoeller, Tom Watson, Roger Davis and Mark Johnson, winner of the 2005 Toshiba Classic.
