Sunday, July 19, 2009Rhoden wins eighth American Century ChampionshipTahoe, NV (Sports Network) - Rick Rhoden, a former major league pitcher, won the American Century Championship on Sunday for his eighth title at this premiere celebrity event.

Rhoden collected 18 points on Sunday and won the championship with a total of 74 points at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Club.

Under the modified Stableford scoring system, players are awarded 10 points for a double-eagle, eight points for a hole-in-one, six points for an eagle, three points for a birdie, one point for a par and zero points for a bogey.

Two points are subtracted for each score of double-bogey or worse.

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo took second after 22 points on Sunday gave him 71 for the tournament.

Former NFL quarterback Billy Joe Tolliver and Dan Quinn shared third place with 70 points.

The championship came down to Rhoden and Quinn.

On the final hole, Rhoden held a slight edge, but both players hit terrible tee shots into the trees.

Each player got back into the fairway, and Rhoden knocked his over the flag.

Quinn came up short in the water, essentially handing Rhoden his eighth win.

"I did not play well today," said Rhoden, who, despite eight wins, finally successfully defended his title for the first time.

"I actually was getting nervous in the end." Jeremy Roenick netted 22 points to take fifth with 69 points.

Grant Fuhr, the Stanley Cup winning goalie, shared the overnight lead with Rhoden but managed only 11 points on Sunday.

He came in sixth with 67 points.
