STATELINE, Nev. (AP) — Stephen Curry’s weekend outing at golf’s American Century Championship was far from his best: He finished in a tie for 16th.
It was his 10th appearance at the Lake Tahoe celebrity golf event; he had previously finished as high as fourth.
The win, for the third time, went to Tony Romo, who beat Mark Mulder and Joe Pavelski with a 5-foot birdie putt on the second hole of a playoff Sunday. Annika Sorenstam and Adam Thielen tied for fourth.
It was the first time in its history that the tournament had a three-way tie at the end of 54 holes. The event uses a modified Stableford scoring system, which awards points on each hole according to how the player does against their own handicap.
Romo, 42, former Dallas quarterback and current NFL television analyst, won at Edgewood Tahoe in 2018 and 2019. Former A’s pitcher Mulder, 44, won the previous three times, in 2015-17.
Romo’s $125,000 prize will go to charity, as he competes as an amateur.
Curry, 34, shot a 3-over-par 75 in Sunday’s third round, with two birdies and five bogeys, after a 77 Friday and an 81 Saturday. He finished the event tied with former Braves pitcher John Smoltz, 55.
Dell Curry was right behind his son, in a tie for 18th. The third member of their party, Seth Curry, was far back, at 67th.
