Rick Rhoden wins the 20th annual Celebrity Golf Championship!

With a total score of 74 points, former MLB Pitcher Rick Rhoden wins the 2009 American Century Championship.  Rhoden somehow squeaked out his 8th Celebrity Championship even though he posted a 2 over par round with four bogies and only 2 birdies for the day.  This is the first time Rhoden has won this tournament in consecutive years, is this the start of a new streak? Finishing second was Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo just 1 birdie away from Rhoden.  Romo shot a 1 under par round of 71 and played consistent golf all day long. Romo made it interesting by making 3 birdies on his last 5 holes.  Coming in a tie for third was 4 time Celebrity Champion Dan Quinn and 2 time Celebrity Champion Billy Joe Tolliver.  Tolliver started off the day on fire with 4 birdies on his front nine and no bogies. He also shot the lowest score for the day but a couple of bogies down the stretch kept Billy Joe from his third Championship. 

The NHL fairs well this year with 5 players in the top 10 including Dallas Stars All Star Mike Modano.  Modano posted a round of 3 under par today placing him in 7th place.  Jeremy Rhoenick, Pierre Larouche and Grant Fuhr all played solid to give the NHL the most players near the top of this year's tournament. 

Well now for the not so good.  It was neck and neck between Sir Charles Barkley and MMA Fighter Chuck Liddell.  Barkley does take the honors for the worse score with a total of minus 97 points just edging out Liddell's minus 94.  I wonder if we will see a sequel to "The Haney Project" with both Barkley and Liddell as the stars.  That's it from Edgewood, see you next year.
