Plenty of sports figures competed in the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament at Lake Tahoe this weekend, which even saw some awkward interviews. And a pair of broadcasters wound up in particularly notable positions.
CBS NFL analyst (and active golfer, and occasional golf analyst, and former Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback) Tony Romo finished first after rallying from four points down Sunday, finishing with a 27-point day (the tournament uses a modified Stableford scoring system, giving golfers six for eagles, three for birdies, one for par and -2 for double bogey or worse) to record a 71 overall. Meanwhile, Turner Sports NBA analyst Charles Barkley finished alone in 91st and last place with -93 points.
Let’s ponder the sheer magnificence of that last stat for a moment. This is a 54-hole tournament, where the worst you can do on a given hole is -2 or worse and where a bogey alone is just a zero, and Barkley still wound up with a -93.
