Three tied for lead at Tahoe celebrity tournament


STATELINE, Nev. – Former NFL quarterback Billy Joe Tolliver, actor Jack Wagner and former NHL star Jeremey Roenick shared the first round lead at the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship at Lake Tahoe.

Tolliver has won the 20-year-old tournament twice before and Wagner once. The trio of leaders tallied 26 points in a modified Stableford scoring format that puts a premium on eagles and birdies and penalizes double bogeys.

Former hockey player Dan Quinn was three points back and eight-time champ Rick Rhoden another two back at Edgewood Golf Course, where play was delayed about 45 minutes Friday afternoon by a thunderstorm. The second round of the 54-hole tourney continues Saturday.
