Sunday scenes at the American Century Championship
STATELINE — The final round of the American Century Championship produced a first-time champion — and a handful of indelible moments. The ACC concluded Sunday at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course, after tee times were moved up an hour to avoid potential inclement weather.
Former MLB All-Star pitcher Mark Mulder won the 26th edition of the celebrity golf tournament, finishing with 82 points to edge a final group that included former MLB pitcher Eric Gagne and Jacksonville Jaguars’ kicker Josh Scobee. Mulder finished atop the leaderboard after three consecutive top-10 finishes at Edgewood.
A lighter crowd lined the beach along the 17th hole, but the par-3 party picked up when Justin Timberlake’s group made its last stop of the tournament. Before teeing off, Timberlake engaged in a dance party with playing partners Alfonso Ribeiro and Jerry Rice — the threesome started by performing “The Carlton,” then danced their way to the green after solid tee shots.
This year’s ACC drew a record crowd of 40,901 over five days, due in large part to Timberlake’s debut. The previous attendance mark was set in 2012.
