Rhoden Leads, Romo 2nd After Falling In Pond At Lake Tahoe

Six-time champion Rick Rhoden is back in a familiar place in the lead at the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship at Lake Tahoe.

Tony Romo glad to be dry pants this evening after he fell in a pond before rallying to move into second place.

And Lawrence Taylor shot an even-par 72 to get into the hunt.

Rhoden, a former pitcher, also shot a 72 to push his two-day total to 45 points in the modified Stableford scoring system that awards six points for eagle, three for birdie, one for par, none for bogey and minus 2 for double bogey or worse.

Romo took a spill in a pond on the first hole after losing his awkward footing on a steep bunker shot. But he rebounded to shoot a 73 worth 43 points while his girlfriend, actress-singer Jessica Simpson, watched from the gallery.

Ex-hockey star Pierre Larouche was next at 41, followed by a group at 39 that included Taylor, NHL all-star Jeremy Roenick, four-time tourney champion Dan Quinn and ex-quarterback Mark Rypien, who won the inaugural event in 1990.

John Elway shot a 4-under-par 68, the best round of the day, to get into another group at 37 with actor Jack Wagner, and ex-NHL stars Brett Hull and Grant Fuhr.
