GREEN BAY – Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers placed 16th in the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament held over the weekend at Edgewood-Tahoe in Nevada.

Using the modified Stableford scoring system, Rodgers compiled 35 points with fairly consistent scoring in each of the three rounds – nine points on Friday, 14 on Saturday, 12 on Sunday.

Former tennis pro Mardy Fish won going away with 76 points, well ahead of former Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams in second place with 67.

Hall of Fame pitcher John Smoltz was third with 58 points, followed by NBA superstar Steph Curry with 56 and NFL QB Case Keenum with 54 to round out the top five.

The 31st annual event was played without fans due to the coronavirus pandemic. All prize monies were being donated to COVID-19 relief and nonprofits in the Tahoe area.

By placing 16th, Rodgers improved on last year's finish by five spots. He has played in the tournament every year since 2005, with a top finish of eighth in 2017.

Former Packers linebacker A.J. Hawk finished tied for 51st with minus-18 points, and former defensive back Charles Woodson tied for 55th at minus-24.
