STATELINE, Nev. (AP) - Defending champion Rick Rhoden held on Sunday to claim a record eighth victory at the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship after Dan Quinn's comeback attempt ended with a shot into the pond guarding the 18th hole.

Rhoden, the former All-Star pitcher, shot a 2-over 74 that was good enough to claim the $125,000 winner's check at Lake Tahoe.

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, who led after the first round, shot a 1-under 71 to finish second.

Quinn was within one of Rhoden headed for No. 18, but finished with a double bogey that left the former hockey player in a tie for third with ex-quarterback Billy Joe Tolliver.
