Theismann Top Domer at Celebrity Golf Tourney


The annual American Century Celebrity Golf Classic -- otherwise known as the "only time you'll see Charles Barkley swing a golf club in public" -- was held this weekend on the shores of Lake Tahoe.

Former Notre Dame All-American QB Joe Theismann (photo above) was the top point scorer in this modified Stableford scoring golf event -- finishing in 30th place.  Here's the final scoring among the four former Notre Dame football stars in Tahoe:
  1. Joe Theismann:  27 pts -- 30th place
  2. Tim Brown:  13 pts -- 44th place
  3. Jerome Bettis:  8 pts -- 47th place
  4. Golden Tate:  0 pts -- 53rd place

Here's how the "modified Stableford scoring" system works -- players earn points based on their score each hole.  Points are awarded in this manner:
  • Eagle:  5 points
  • Birdie:  2 points
  • Par:  0 points
  • Bogey:  0 points
  • Double-Bogey:  -2 points
