The American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament at Edgewood in Tahoe began Friday and features a handful of 49ers and 49ers alumni.
The only current 49ers player in the field is kicker Robbie Gould, who has right tackle Mike McGlinchey tagging along as his caddy. Former 49ers Steve Young, Jerry Rice and Alex Smith are also playing in this year’s tournament with varying degrees of success.
This tournament takes on a little bit different system than traditional golf scoring in order to level the playing field some. Their scoring system is a modified version of Stableford rules according to the Golf Channel. Here’s how it works:
Albatross (Double-Eagle): 10 points
Hole-in-one: 8 points
Eagle: 6 points
Birdie: 3 points
Par: 1 point
Bogey: 0 points
Double bogey or worse: -2 points
We’ll keep this 49ers leaderboard updated throughout the three-day event. Here’s where the past and present 49ers stand:
