Rick Acton, in his first year on the Senior PGA Tour, already has fallen into a playing pattern he's really hoping to snap out of. He has struggled in his first round in the last five tournaments and as a result taken himself out of first-place contention. But after a wobbly start, he has played much better. Such was the case for Acton Sunday in the final round of the Toshiba Senior Classic at Newport Beach Country Club.

Tiger Woods drove the green on two 370-yard-plus par fours. His seven-under-par 66 was eight shots better than the average score Friday. He wound up with a four-shot lead halfway home to his fifth consecutive PGA Tour victory. After watching yet another remarkable display by the No. 1 player in the world, Ernie Els had only one explanation after the second round of the Mercedes Championship. "The guy is kind of a freak, you know what I mean?" Els said.

Chi Chi Rodriguez pulls up to the first tee Tuesday during a practice round for the Toshiba Senior Classic at Newport Beach Country Club and one of the few fans there who braved the early-morning drizzle greeted the popular Puerto Rican with a resounding, "Welcome back, Chi Chi." Welcome back indeed. Not just to Newport Beach, but to golf. Rodriguez, a longtime fan favorite, is back on the course this year after a mild heart attack sidelined him at the end of last year.

He thought about turning professional when he was 30 but figured he was probably too old. He got the itch again at 36 but thought it was way too late by then. So Allan Doyle waited. The heavily decorated amateur who owns and operates a driving range in La Grange, Ga., thought the Senior PGA Tour--where 50 is the minimum age--would be the place for him. The wait has paid off.

Jim Colbert admits it. OK, he likes money. And as we all know, there are few better places to make money than the Senior PGA Tour, but Colbert said that's not the reason he came back to play the last four events of the year. Colbert had been out since June after having prostate cancer surgery and said he didn't think he'd be back until 1998. But he changed his mind. He said it wasn't because of money--the money he wasn't making. Colbert was No. 8 on the money list when he left and No.

In its fourth year at Newport Beach Country Club, the Toshiba Senior Classic is settling into a routine as certain as the cool afternoon breeze off the Pacific. There have never been fewer than three players in the lead after the first round, and Friday was true to form with Gary McCord, Tom Jenkins, John Jacobs and Bruce Summerhays shooting four-under-par 67s. "You're probably not going to blow the field away here," Summerhays said. "A lot of people are in the tournament normally." No doubt.
