Holtz's Final Rounds at the American Century Championship
Friday, July 15, 2011

By:  Craig Smith 
South Shore, Lake Tahoe, Nev. – Lou Holtz let ESPN talk him into being a college football analyst for two more years, but the fit-looking 74-year-old was sure that this would be his last visit to the American Century Championship.

“There comes a time when you have to step aside,” side the affable retired coach before he headed to the first tee to begin play on Friday. “I can’t reach most of the fairways any more. But from 100 yards and in I’m still okay. They need to let us old guys move up so we can be competitive.”...   full article: Here

Tebow and Elway So Close and Yet So Far Apart
Thursday, July 14, 2011

By:  Craig Smith 
South Shore, Lake Tahoe, Nev. – Tim Tebow has always done things his own way, but tackling the Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course for the start of the American Century Championship without much practice and having never had a golf lesson might be more than even he can overcome.

“I get my money’s worth out of every swing,” said the Denver Bronco quarterback after taking a mighty rip at his drive from the 16th tee. “I’m not an expert at this, and if I break 90 each day out here I’ll be happy.”...   full article: Here

Wednesday, July 13, 2011

By:  Craig Smith 
South Shore, Lake Tahoe, Nev. – Michael Jordan and Tony Romo had never met before the American Century Championship four years ago. It was golf that brought them together.

Now they were walking down the 11th fairway during Wednesday’s practice round talking about golf equipment and what Jordan might try to get a bit more lift on his drives without losing distance.

If any celebrity out here might know, it’s Romo, a scratch amateur golfer and the Dallas Cowboys quarterback who finished his practice round at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course with a 2-under-par 70. The ever-competitive Jordan wasn’t far behind...   full article: Here

Tuesday, July 12, 2011

By:  Craig Smith 
South Shore, Lake Tahoe, Nev. -- Aaron Rodgers figures he is going to be a winner this week, even if he doesn’t take first place at the American Century Championship being played this weekend at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course in Lake Tahoe, Nev.

After a practice round on Tuesday where he interchanged pars and bogeys, Rodgers left for Los Angeles to attend Wednesday’s ESPY Awards, where his Green Bay Packer team is nominated for best team and he is nominated for top male athlete and top NFL player. He will return to Lake Tahoe on Thursday, in plenty of time to get in another practice round before the competition begins on Friday...   full article: Here
