2nd round of the American Century Championship is complete

Six time Celebrity Golf Champion, Rick Rhoden, leads the field after today's 2nd round with a total of 45 points. Rhoden fired an even par round of 72 with 5 birdies and 3 bogies on his card scoring him 22 points for the day. The former MLB Pitcher holds a 2 point lead over Dallas Cowboys Quarterback, Tony Romo. Romo's 1 under par round of 73 scored the crowd favorite 20 points and a date in the final group come Sunday. The next 3 spots are held by the NHL's finest. San Jose Sharks All-Star Center, Jeremy Roenick, started the day with the lead but posted a 6 over par round of 78 only scoring the future Hall of Fame center 15 points. Roenick is currently in a tie for 3rd place with former NHL All-Star Center Pierre Larouche both with 41 points only a par and a birdie away from the lead. Four time winner of this event, Dan Quinn, posted the 2nd best round of the day with a 1 under par round of 71 and 22 points for the day. Quinn and Rhoden own over half of the victories in this event so don't count out the former NHL All-Star Center. The best round of the day by far was turned in by 2 time Suberbowl MVP, John Elway. Elway's impressive round of 4 under par 68 scored the Hall of Fame Quarterback 27 points. Elway is one of only 6 celebrities to play in all 19 Celebrity Golf Championship's. There are 10 players within striking distance of our leader so Sunday should be some pretty exciting golf. Check back tomorrow for the final round fireworks.
