Mark Mulder wins third consecutive American Century Championship

Sateline, July 17: Former Major League Baseball left-handed pitcher Mark Mulder won his record third straight title Sunday in the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament, and Stephen Curry rallied to finish fourth.

Mulder had an 11-point victory over fellow former pitcher Derek Lowe and former tennis player Mardy Fish in the modified Stableford event at at Edgewood Tahoe. Players got 6 points for eagle, 3 for birdie, 1 for par, 0 for bogey and minus-2 for double bogey or higher.

Curry had 28 points in the final round — the best round score of the week in the 54-hole tournament — to finish with 60. The NBA star eagled the par-5 18th for a 68.

The tournament began in 1990, and plays under abbreviated rules of just 54 holes, but is considered to be the premier celebrity golf tournament. Rhoden was around in those days, winning his first ACC crown in 1991.
