Elway to Play Celebrity Golf Tournament

Posted Jul 2, 2014

John Elway will compete in the 25th annual American Century Championship in Lake Tahoe July 18-20.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- After 24 years of playing in the event, Executive Vice President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway won't miss the Silver Anniversary edition of the American Century Championship, a celebrity golf tournament held in Lake Tahoe, Calif., each July.

One of only four people to play each year since the event's inception, Elway has posted 11 top-ten finishes, including second place in 1999 and 2010 and third place last year. The other three who have competed in all 24 tournaments are US Hockey hero Mike Eruzione, former Bears quarterback Jim McMahon and actor/signer Jack Wagner.

Head Coach John Fox will be among the competitors as well, and so will Denver stars Terrell Davis and Joe Sakic. Other notable players include Steph Curry, Aaron Rodgers, Larry the Cable Guy and Marshall Faulk, among many others. Also in the field will be retired US Army Cpl. Chad Pfeifer, an Iraqi War veteran and amputee whose golf-centered rehabilitation has turned him into a top-tier tournament player.

The 54-hole tournament will be held July 18-20 at the Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course and will be televised on NBC Sports, NBC Sports Network and Golf Channel.

The event has raised more than $4 million over the years for various charities and foundations, including Autism Speaks and LIVESTRONG.
