The American Century Championship is a celebrity golf tournament in Nevada, United States. It is held during the second full week of July at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course in Stateline, at the shore of Lake Tahoe. The course is at the southeast edge of the lake, at an average elevation exceeding 6,230 feet (1,900 m) above sea level.

History

The American Century Championship tournament was developed to fill air time after NBC lost major league baseball airing rights. Initially, the tournament had no title sponsor, but landed three hall of fame players from different sports, John Elway, Michael Jordan and Mario Lemieux.[2] The first tournament was held 30 years ago in 1990 and sponsored by NBC,[3] which broadcasts the second and third-round coverage on the weekend. Isuzu sponsored the tournament from 1991 through 1998,[citation needed] succeeded by current sponsor American Century Investments in 1999.[4]

A 54-hole event, the first fourteen editions were conducted under standard stroke play; the modified Stableford format has been used since 2004.

The multiple winners of the event are Rick Rhoden (8), Dan Quinn (5), Billy Joe Tolliver (4), Mark Mulder (3), Jack Wagner (2), Tony Romo (2) and Mark Rypien (2). Actor Wagner is the only non-professional athlete to have won the event, and Mulder is the only one to win three consecutive.[5]

In July 2015, American Century Investments extended its sponsorship to 2022.[4]
