NFL greats: What does the ACC mean to you?
STATELINE, Nev. (News 4) —
The American Century Championship rolls on at Edgewood Tahoe this Thursday as the final Celebrity Amateur Round comes to a close—but what is it that keeps these athletes and celebrities returning year after year?
News 4’s Bryan Samudio and Alex Margulies caught up with some NFL greats to find out what the tourney means to them.
For some, it’s a time of difficulty that yields indescribable reward.
“It’s really a nerve-wracking, very difficult, tiring week, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world,” said NFL Hall of Famer Tim Brown.
For others, Lake Tahoe’s beauty is a big draw.
“It’s one of the best weekends I have, just from beauty, and golf, and friends, and family. It’s just great. Can’t think of a better place,” said NFL Hall of Famer Marcus Allen.
For all, the honor of being invited to participate is worth the price of admission.
“It’s quite an honor to be invited to it, there’s about 15 guys who got a chance; and the rest of us—and I happen to be one of the rest of them—have no chance. But I enjoy it, I enjoy the fans, and the camaraderie, and the players,” said Herm Edwards, former NFL Head Coach.
