Two Kansas City Chiefs players are participating in the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament this weekend: quarterback Patrick Mahomes and tight end Travis Kelce. Held in on the shores of Lake Tahoe in Stateline, Nevada, the event normally draws tens of thousands of spectators, but is being played without them due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The tournament uses a modified scoring system where points are awarded for different scores on each hole. A par gets one point, a birdie gets three and an eagle gets six, while a bogey is awarded none and a double bogey subtracts two.

After the first round, former Buffalo Bills defensive lineman Kyle Williams leads the tournament with 25 points after shooting a 70 in the first round. Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is in second place with 20 points. Mahomes and Kelce are way behind after shooting 88 and 90 respectively, which gave each a score of -3 on the opening day.

But they are clearly having fun!

All that’s missing from that celebration is Mahomes counting the distance of the putt on his fingers.

After an eagle, why wouldn’t there be a chest bump?

The beer clearly helped on that celebration!

The tournament will continue on Saturday and Sunday. On both days, it will be broadcast on NBC-TV (KSHB/41 in Kansas City) beginning at 2 p.m. Arrowhead Time, with a rebroadcast on The Golf Channel at 9 p.m. It may also be streamed at
