The first round of the 2008 Celebrity Golf Championship is under way!

It's Friday morning at Edgewood Tahoe Golf course and the action is already heating up. The early lead is held by former NFL All-Pro Quarterback Steve Bartkowski with 6 points. Bartkowski is playing solid golf with 3 pars and 1 birdie in this modified stableford scoring system. Players are awarded 1 point for par, 3 points for a birdie, 6 points for an eagle and so on. Former MLB All-Star Outfielder, Vince Coleman, is alone in second place with 5 points. Coleman has posted 2 par's and 1 birdie so far on his round. First timer to this event Nascar great, Dale Jarrett, birdied his first hole at Edgewood to score a quick 3 points shooting him right up the leaderboard. Jarrett is the only player so far to birdie the first hole. Go Dale Go!

On the lighter side this morning, 19 month old William Dylan O'Hurley. Son of Actor/Host John O'Hurley, launched his golf career by hitting a few shots with his Dad this morning on the driving range in front of fans and celebrities cheering him on. Talk about pressure. That's all for now at Edgewood. I am heading back on to the course to get the latest scoop. :)
