Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, LB A.J. Hawk and former WR Sterling Sharpe each participated in the opening round of the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament at Edgewood Golf Club at Lake Tahoe on Friday.

The three-day, 54-hole tournament – now in its 25th year – is for current and former professional athletes and is scored under a modified Stableford format.

Sharpe is tied for sixth place in the 86-player field after round one, carding a plus-two 74 and accumulating 20 points. The highlight of Sharpe’s day was an eagle three on the par-five fourth hole.

Rodgers (T22) also had a strong showing on Friday, shooting a 77 and scoring 13 points while dropping in a pair of birdies. Hawk (T62) finished the day with a score of 90 (-3 points).
