NEWPORT BEACH ? After a bogey on No. 9 at Newport Beach Country Club, Eduardo Romero told his caddie, ?We have to wake up. We can win this tournament, but not like this.? That statement made sense. After all, the Argentinian is nicknamed, ?El Gato,? and the cat is known to have nine lives. Romero responded in a big way after the ninth hole, sinking three straight birdies. Now you can call him El Campeon, which means The Champion. Romero won the 15th annual Toshiba Classic Sunday, when his three-under-par 68 final round gave him an 11-under-202 finish for a one-stroke victory ahead of Mark O?

A quote from each senior golfer following their respective Toshiba Senior Classic victories: "Golf is a crazy game ... you do things you're not supposed to do." George Archer, 1995 Toshiba champion "I've never figured out how to compare golf courses. I can only equate it to women. No two are the same." Jim Colbert, 1996 Toshiba champion "It rolled over a little bump, then I thought, 'Son of a gun, this may go in the hole.' " Bob Murphy, 1997 Toshiba champion "It's that local knowledge -- you learn where the rakes are."

Rick Devereux Monday is usually the day off for professional golfers. They regroup from the most recent tournament and travel to the next destination. But several Senior PGA members participated in the Toshiba Senior Classic Monday Pro-Am at Newport Beach Country Club. "[Monday] is when the tournament raises money for charities," said Joe Inman, a three-time champion on the ChampionsTour. "These tournaments need players to be good stewards for the game."

Once again, the numbers from the PGA Champions Tour's Toshiba Senior Classic are impressive. The first is winner Tom Purtzer's opening round 60, which set a new tournament record. The second is 80,000, the approximate number of people who came to see the three-day tournament, drawn no doubt by the allure of Jack Nicklaus' first trip to the Toshiba. The third, and perhaps most important one, is 1 million -- as in the more than $1 million the tournament raised for Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian for the fifth consecutive year.

Paul Clinton NEWPORT BEACH -- Driving a ball down the fairway may not be the toughest part of the Newport Beach Country Club's golf course. But once you get to the sloping greens, you could be in trouble. It's a fact those in the 78-player field of this weekend's Toshiba Senior Classic are reminded of each year. "The thing about this golf course that makes it a difficult course is the greens," Toshiba entrant Walter Morgan said. The course, built in the mid-1950s, was among the tougher challenges on the Senior PGA Tour last year, with golfers shooting an average 72.404 score at the course.

The 20th Toshiba Classic will be mostly remembered for Fred Couples' second time winning the event, as he surprised many with his victory by one stroke. But the Toshiba Classic will be a great memory for much different reasons for Thomas Terry, a Newport Harbor High senior. The 17-year-old, who plays on the Sailors boys' golf team, worked as the caddy for P.H. Horgan III, who qualified for the tournament March 10. Horgan tied for third at the qualifier after he shot four-under-par 67 at Goose Creek Golf Course in Mira Loma.

Going into the final round of the 20th Toshiba Classic, Fred Couples didn't think he could win the tournament because Bernhard Langer had been so hot. But on Sunday at Newport Beach Country Club, Couples grabbed momentum on his back nine to give himself an opportunity. Still a victory wasn't close to being secured because at one point nine golfers had held or shared the lead. Six were tied for the lead with three holes remaining. But Couples shot a five-under-par 66 in his final round and finished at 15-under 198 to become the second player in Toshiba Classic history to win the event twice, as he won it in 2010.

Kenny Perry described Bernhard Langer as the type of golfer who gets under his skin because the 56-year-old German works so hard. Langer is the type who pushes others to be great, Perry said. Langer would rather just continue to push his way past the field at the 20th Toshiba Classic. He maintained his two-shot lead Saturday at Newport Beach Country Club, compensating for two bogeys with a stretch of four birdies out of five holes on the back nine to shoot five-under-par 66 in the second round.

It's easy for Colin Montgomerie to remember his first event on the PGA European Tour - and not because of some fabulous highlight. His mind actually goes to a rare embarrassing moment. His golf clubs went missing. They were shipped elsewhere after his flight to Switzerland for the Swiss Open. The World Golf Hall of Fame member also made the rookie mistake of packing his golf shoes with his clubs. "Switzerland is not really a golfer place," Montgomerie said during the Toshiba Classic's annual Breakfast With a Champion on Tuesday morning at the Balboa Bay Resort.
