American Century Championship 2020 schedule, player list, tee times & more to watch celebrity golf tournament

What is there to do when you are a bored celebrity in the middle of a pandemic? Play golf for a good cause — social distanced, of course.

That is the 2020 American Century Championship in a nutshell as a who’s who of current and former athletes, actors and other famous faces head to Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course overlooking Lake Tahoe for the annual celebrity golf tournament. NBC is broadcasting all three rounds of the event live.

The 72-player field in 2020 includes everyone from NFL quarterbacks Patrick Mahomes and Aaron Rodgers to NBA MVP Stephen Curry and his dad, Dell, plus entertainment personalities Ray Romano, Miles Teller and Larry the Cable Guy, among others.

Former NFL quarterback and CBS analyst Tony Romo is also back to defend his titles after winning the tournament in consecutive years. Romo, who dabbles in PGA Tour tournaments on occasion, is a mainstay at the ACC, finishing in the top five in each of his seven appearances.

Curry, who finished seventh in 2019, could prove to be Romo’s top challenger making his eighth appearance. Former MLB ace Mark Mulder has won three times (2015-17). 

Here’s everything to know about the 2020 American Century Championship, including a list of tee times (updated daily), the complete TV schedule, player list, betting odds and more.
