STATELINE, Nev. – Tony Romo completed a cable-to-cable victory Sunday at the American Century Championship for his second straight victory in the celebrity tournament at the Edgewood Tahoe golf course.
The former Dallas Cowboys quarterback and current CBS NFL badyst closed with a 2-over 74 and scored 20 points to finish with 71 in the modified Stableford scoring system. Former pitcher Mark Mulder, the winner in 2015-17, had 10 points back after a day of 71 and 24 points.
Romo, 39, became the fourth player in tournament history to successfully defend the title. With Romo an amateur, the first prize of $ 125,000 was donated to the official charity of the Stowers Institute for Medical Research.
"It's an honor to win this tournament," said Romo. "I entered with confidence and this is one of the best golf courses I've played in recent weeks, when I won last year, all the shots were important, this year it was easier, that's why we practice so much."
