Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo rallied from four points back to win the 2018 American Century Championship title. Romo retired after the 2016 NFL season and is now an NFL analyst for CBS. "It's a special win," said Romo, who had finished second three times in seven previous trips to the annual celebrity golf tournament at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course.
Warriors guard Stephen Curry, who fell out of contention with a mediocre round Saturday, finished in a tie for 11th jumped into Lake Tahoe amidst much fanfare after losing a bet to his father, Dell. The elder Curry jumped into the lake last year, so he negotiated a 20-point handicap and won by two points.
"It was pretty cold, but actually it was refreshing," Stephen Curry said. "I just don't want to go in ever again."
Romo plays as an amateur, so his $125,000 first-place check from the $600,000 purse goes to local charities and the Stowers Institute for Medical Research, the primary charitable arm of title sponsor American Century Investments.
