Tony Romo, former Dallas Cowboys star quarterback turned recently anointed CBS Sports game analyst, wasn’t producing great results on the golf course at the American Century Championship at Lake Tahoe in Stateline, Nev.
He was having a great time with his celebrity buddies, award-winning singer-actor Justin Timberlake and Golden State Warriors basketball savant Stephen Curry, who have been in the star-power grouping in the celebrity tournament that concludes Sunday (2-5 p.m. NBC).

Although deemed a tournament title favorite going into the event because of his strong attempts to qualify for the U.S. Open, Romo was in 19th place with 29 points (modified Stableford system) going into Sunday’s final round.
On Sunday, former major league pitcher Mark Mulder won the event, closing with his second consecutive 69 to win by 11 points over former big league pitcher Derek Lowe and former tennis star Mardy Fish. Mulder finished with 73 points.
The surprise of the tournament was Curry. He shot 68 in the third and final round Sunday to finish fourth with 60 points, two out of a share of second.
Romo had his best round of the tournament on Sunday, shooting a 74, but he was well back. He finished tied for 16th with 47 points. Timberlake shot 85 and Sunday for a 12-point total overall.
Former Dallas Stars standout Mike Modano tied for sixth after a final-round 71.
The basketball skills appear to have eroded too for former honorary Dallas Maverick Romo, although Curry had the “lock down defense.”
Timberlake got a lot of good-guy props on Wednesday for consoling a woman who had been hit by an errant shot.
