STATELINE, Nev. (AP) -- Actor Jack Wagner earned his second title at the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship on Sunday, holding off a late-charging Tony Romo with a 10-foot birdie putt on the 17th hole and overcoming a shot into the pond guarding the 18th.
Romo eagled No. 11 after reaching the green with his drive on the 315-yard par 4. The Dallas quarterback birdied No. 13 to pull within two points in the modified Stableford scoring format that puts a premium on eagles and birdies.
Both hit inside 15 feet on the par-3 17th, but Romo missed his birdie attempt while Wagner made his.
Romo followed Wagner into the pond on the 18th then made par while Wagner saved bogey to win 80-77.
