Before they step onto the green fields of Broncos training camp, Executive VP of Football Operations John Elway and Head Coach John Fox will hit the greens of the 24th Annual American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe next week.
Elway and Fox join a decorated lineup of celebrities – including Michael Phelps, Charles Barkley, Jerry Rice, Ray Romano, Steve Spurrier, Stephen Curry, Aaron Rodgers, Marshall Faulk, Ray Allen and Shane Battier – as competitors in the famed tournament, which takes place July 19-21 at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course in South Lake Tahoe, NV.
It’s the first time that Fox has played in the event – Elway finished third in 2012 and tied for second place in 2010.
The field is composed of 80 current and former professional athletes, celebrities and entertainers – including defending champion and former NHL center Dan Quinn, who has won the event five times.
The 54-hole tournament is played under a modified Stableford format.
The tournament will be televised live by NBC Sports and the Golf Channel, with the first round taking place from 2-5 p.m. MST on Friday the 19th, the second round from 1-4 p.m. MST on Saturday the 20th, and the final round from 1-4 p.m. MST on Sunday the 21st.
