Edwards middle of pack

Bills quarterback Trent Edwards tied for 40th out of 82 golfers at the American Century Championship golf tournament in Lake Tahoe, Nev. The event featured mostly current and former NFL players competing over three rounds in a Stableford scoring format, which gives one point for a par, three for a birdie, zero for a bogey, minus-2 for a double bogey and six for an eagle. Former NFL quarterback Billy Joe Tolliver won going away, with 84 points. There was a four-way tie for second at 65 points among Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, Hall of Famer John Elway, former pitching great John Smolz and actor Jack Wagner. Edwards scored 29 points, 8 Friday, 13 Saturday and 8 Sunday.

Perhaps the biggest news was NBA great Charles Barkley finished last with minus-93 points, which means he made the equivalent of double bogey or worse on 46 of 54 holes. Actor Ray Romano finished 79th with negative-33 points. Both Barkley and Romano were students of famed golf instructor Hank Haney (Tiger Woods' former instructor) on Golf Channel series "The Haney Project" in recent years.
