Nick Faldo, queen-appointed Member of the British Empire, defeated Some Guy in a Red Sweater for the Masters golf championship Sunday. We cannot tell you much else about the poor slob who lost, except that his name is Hoch, which rhymes with choke , which is a word that--sorry--cannot be avoided when a mortal misses a two-foot putt that could have made him immortal. The guy who gagged was Scott Mabon Hoch, 33, some American who has not won a tournament in five years.

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.

A lot of things were going through Scott Hoch's mind Saturday night. He had a four-stroke lead going into the final round of the $1.1-million Bob Hope Chrysler Classic and he was thinking about how he was going to play the final round at Indian Wells. He was also thinking of the last time he had a four-stroke lead going into the final round. It was the 1987 Memorial. He played poorly in that final round and finished third. Then there was Augusta. With Hoch, 38, there will always be Augusta.

Scott Hoch got greedy. There was no getting around it, and he didn't try to deny it. His thoughts were on a $500,000 bonus instead of his position in the fourth round of the 90-hole Bob Hope Chrysler Classic.

Scott Hoch is trying to put his much-publicized playoff loss in the Masters last year behind him. Apparently, though, no one will let him forget it. Curtis Strange, who had a major disappointment in this major tournament in 1985, says that Hoch will live with that haunting defeat his entire career. Then, there's Robert Gamez, a tour rookie who has already won twice in the first nine weeks of the season.
