Round two is the books!

After day two of the 2oth American Century Celebrity Golf Championship we have a tie atop the leaderboard between NHL Hall of Fame Goalie Grant Fuhr and former MLB Pitcher Rick Rhoden both with 56 points.  Both Fuhr and Rhoden posted 5 under par rounds of 67.  Rhoden made 8 birdies in his round today including birdies on his last 4 holes.  Fuhr played well today sinking 2 eagle putts on the par fives scoring a total of 32 points which is a new single day point record.  The leaders are 7 points ahead of second place contenders Tony Romo and 4 time Celebrity Champion Dan Quinn.  Quinn climbed the leader board today by posting a 4 under par round of 68 scoring 28 points for the day.  Also scoring well today were Hockey greats Jeremy Roenick with 27 points and Brett Hull with 26 points.  Six celebrity golfers posted rounds under par today, not bad!  

The race for last place is still between  MMA Fighter Chuck Liddell and NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley.  Barkley gained a little bit of ground today on Liddell by scoring negative 31 points for the day. Liddell on the other hand bettered his first round score by only scoring negative 28 points. 

Looks like someone will have to go really low tomorrow to contend with the leaders but it is possible.  See you tomorrow.

OK, I've just about had it! Been trying to show Barkley the Over The Top Golf swing for months without success. He's obviously content to be the biggest hacker of all the celebrities. I'm going to change my blog to I WANT CHUCK LIDDELL!

Well that's kinda harsh.Didn't Barkley hire a swing coach to improve ?

More to the point tho: some legend/celebrity pairing looks familiar... and some lucky fan's heart will be beating wildly if she ever gets to talk with then.
