Quinn wins American Century Championship

Sun 22nd, July 2012

Stateline, NV (Sports Network) - Dan Quinn birdied three of his first seven holes Sunday to pull ahead, then stretched his lead on the back nine to earn a 6-point victory over former NFL quarterback Mark Rypien in the American Century Championship at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course.

Quinn finished with 66 points. Rypien was second with 60 points and Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway finished third with 59 points. It was the fourth win at the event for Quinn, a former NHL star who will caddie for Ernie Els at next weeks Canadian Open. Els won the British Open earlier in the day.

Quinn, who collected $125,000 from a total purse of $600,000, started the day three points behind second-round leader Rypien, who had 43 points after 54 holes. The event uses a Stableford scoring system that awards graduated points for pars or better.

Billy Joe Tolliver finished fourth with 58 points; Romo was fifth with 56 points, and Joe Theismann was sixth with 53 points. Former MLB pitcher Mark Mulder, who shared the first-round lead with defending champion Jack Wagner, finished in seventh place with 52 points. Wagner slipped to eighth place with 51 points.

At the half-way point, Quinn held a 52-50 lead over Rypien. The former hockey player birdied the par-4 11th to move in front by four points over Rypien and five points over Romo with three good scoring holes remaining; especially the par-5 16th and 18th.

Quinn then made a 25-footer for birdie on 16 to close the door on his challengers.

"My thought was just to get that putt to the hole," said Quinn. "When I made it I thought, 'Unless I did something crazy I looked pretty solid."

Romo failed to birdie the 16th and then took a double bogey on the final hole to lose two points.
