His streak isn't quite as long as Tiger Woods', nor is it as well known, but that doesn't make Scott Hoch any less of a marked man as the Toshiba Classic gets underway today at Newport Beach Country Club. Hoch has won the last two Champions Tour events, claiming a playoff victory Feb. 17 at the ACE Group Classic and a one-shot victory Feb. 10 at the Allianz Championship. But Hoch, 52, in his second full season on the Champions Tour, is well aware that extending his streak to three won't be easy.

BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Scott Hoch was trailing by three shots with eight holes to play, so he simply went back to basics. The decision paid off. Hoch birdied five of the last eight holes for a one-shot victory in the Allianz Championship on Sunday. After a bogey on the 10th hole, Hoch knocked in birdies on Nos. 11, 12, 15, 17 and 18 to finish the tournament at 14-under-par 202, one shot better than Brad Bryant and Bruce Lietzke. It was Hoch's second win since joining the Champions Tour in 2006.

Mighty Duck President Tony Tavares doesn't expect the NHL lockout to result in layoffs of team employees "for the foreseeable future" but said workers might eventually be given temporary assignments--perhaps even at Disneyland. "Some people might be cross-utilized," said Tavares, whose team is owned by the Walt Disney Co. Miscellany Scott Hoch rode six consecutive birdies into a two-shot lead Thursday after two rounds of the Las Vegas Invitational.

Scott Hoch shot a five-under-par 67 Saturday to retain a two-stroke lead after three rounds of the $400,000 Walt Disney World golf tournament on three courses at Lake Buena Vista, Fla. Hoch, playing with a sore shoulder, made six birdies and a bogey, and had a 199 total for 54 holes. "I just struggled to get in. Luckily, I birdied the last two holes," said the 29-year-old golfer who plays out of Bay Hill Country Club in Orlando, Fla.

Scott Hoch, halfway leader in the Memorial tournament, hasn't won a tournament this year, but he did win a $118,000 Rolls-Royce for making a hole-in-one at the Las Vegas Invitational last month. Hoch hasn't driven the car, however. It's still sitting in the showroom in Las Vegas while he tries to sell it back to the dealer. Why doesn't he want it? "It doesn't fit in the drive-through window at Wendy's," he said.

One clutch putt made Scott Hoch happy he chose to wait overnight to continue his playoff. Monday, one day after he had riled a few thousand fans by refusing to attempt his nine-foot birdie putt on the second playoff hole because of darkness, Hoch sank the putt and went on to defeat Jim Furyk on the third playoff hole for the Ford Championship title at Doral. "This is very big to do this, and to do it how I did," Hoch said.

Scott Hoch finally found a swing that worked and a putting stroke that couldn't fail Saturday to shoot a six-under-par 66 and share the lead with Bob Tway heading into the final round of the Ford Championship at Doral in Miami. Hoch shortened his swing to compensate for a sore left wrist and went on a tear, making birdies on seven of his final 11 holes. He was at 14-under 202 and will play in the final group with Tway, who parred the final eight holes for a three-under 69.

Scott Hoch walked off the green a happy guy, his arms around his wife and two children, a bright smile lighting up the darkening skies at the Western Open in Lemont, Ill. This victory was special, for so many different reasons. "It's got to be one of my best memories in golf," he said. Hoch made a 1 1/2-foot putt on the 18th green Sunday to beat Davis Love III by one stroke. He set a tournament record with a 21-under 267 total, and his eight-under 64 was the low round of the week.

Scott Hoch was wondering if he ever was going to get it going Sunday in the final round of the Greater Greensboro Chrysler Classic at Greensboro, N.C. Then he felt inspiration from an old friend--the late Payne Stewart. "I just told him to try to help us get through the day and I really felt he was out there today," said Hoch, who used Stewart's former caddie, Mike Hicks. "I just started thinking about it when I got a little down and then something just turned me around.

Scott Hoch blew a six-shot lead with seven holes to play Sunday, rescued an opportunity to win with a 35-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole to force a playoff, then watched Payne Stewart make a three-foot par putt on the first extra hole to win the Houston Open. Hoch had a six-shot lead at the turn, but made three bogeys and double-bogeyed No. 17 when he hit his tee shot into water, shooting a three-over-par 75 while Stewart shot a 68 to finish at 12-under 276.

Scott Hoch stormed into a two-stroke lead Friday with a course-record-tying nine-under-par 63 on the shortest of three layouts used in the $400,000 Walt Disney World-Oldsmobile tournament at Lake Buena Vista, Fla. Hoch, who has won three times in his six-year PGA Tour career, played the Lake Buena Vista course despite the painful recurrence of a shoulder injury. "On the last nine holes, I was just trying to get in, but I kept hitting the ball close and making birdie putts," Hoch said.

Scott Hoch spoke. A year ago, he didn't, at least not to the press. A self-imposed boycott of the media, he said, because stories quoting him looked a little different in print than he remembered them coming out of his mouth. After shooting a four-under-par 67 Thursday and finding himself tied for third place after the first round of the Nissan Open at Valencia Country Club, he did something he didn't do last year when he led after the first round at Riviera. He went to a press conference.
