Everything you missed from the American Century Championship in Lake Tahoe
The American Century Celebrity Golf Championship is a bucket list type of event to attend. It takes place each year at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course in Stateline, Nevada, at the shore of Lake Tahoe, and celebrities from sports, music, film and more all come out to play. The setting is unbelievable -- just check out how awesome this scene is from the Twitter account of former tennis star Mardy Fish, who tied for second in the tournament:
It's one of the coolest events in sports, and if you can't ever attend, it's pretty entertaining to watch on TV, too. You might see Charles Barkley attempt a cross-handed swing, Aaron Rodgers going deep to Stephen Curry and, of course, Justin Timberlake doing "The Carlton Dance"..... with Carlton.
This weekend was another fun one in Lake Tahoe. Here's everything you may have missed:
Former MLB pitcher Mark Mulder can really play some golf. Sunday's win in Nevada makes it three in a row for the two-time MLB All-Star, and it makes him the only three-peat winner in the events 27-year history.
Oh, and he also won the event's closest-to-the-pin contest.
Steph Curry was a jack of all trades this week. In addition to keeping his game sharp for his big debut in a Web.com Tour event later this month, the two-time NBA champion caught passes from Aaron Rodgers, and found some time to work on his defense. Unfortunately, San Jose Sharks captain Joe Pavelski drained a three in Curry's face.
A rare loss for Steph Curry, but he bounced back quickly, winning a bet over his father Dell and making him pay up.
NFL kickers Sebastian Janikowski and Robbie Gould were in the field, and went head-to-head in a unique putting contest.
Looks like Janikowski came out on top there, but Gould looks to be in top form heading into his first season with the San Francisco 49ers.
Quarterback-turned-broadcaster Tony Romo, still searching for his first win at the American Century Championship, finished in a tie for 16th this week. Like Curry, he showed his well-rounded athletic ability, tossing perfect alley-oops to the Warriors guard, with the help of long-snapper Justin Timberlake.
Apparently, the cross-handed grip wasn't working for Charles Barkley. He decided to give just one arm a try, and it went horribly wrong.
Paige Spiranac made an appearance this year, and posted a strong final round 71 to finish in solo 14th. Had it not been for a rough day on the greens on Saturday, she may have even cracked the top-10. We've all been there.
One of the many current and former hockey players in the field this week was Jeremy Roenick, who may have found his second (or third) calling in trick shot videos.
Ray Allen the golfer? Pretty good.
Ray Allen the shooter? G.O.A.T.
We'll leave you with the a powerful bromance born this week - Steph Curry and Justin Timberlake. We're totally not jealous.
