Jack Wagner Golf, The best golfer at Edgewood Tahoe last week did not play a single hole in 22 annual American Championship tournament golf celebrities of the century. But they do play an important role. PGA Tour player David Berganio Jr., caddy of his old friend Jack Wagner, and the great advantage when Wagner began to evaporate Sunday, Berganio helped lead to victory.
“It’s a combination of friendship and become a professional, you know, ‘Hey, buddy, through this work. You have to work through this,’” Wagner said after eking out a victory by three points Cowboys Tony Romo. “‘You are as good or better than anyone else here on the greens. You are the best putter in large part in the tournament. Enough in-” ”
“Today I was quite positive. That’s a lot to do with David, by the way.”
Wagner, who led throughout the tournament, had a lead of 10 points in the first nine holes in play partner Romo, but Romo’s six-point eagle on hole 11 closing the gap.
By the time the two reached 17 pars 3, the Wagner lead was down to two. He plunged 10 feet for birdie right after Romo missed his 12-foot birdie try to, then both players hit their second shot on 18 in Lake Laimbeer. Romo needed to make a 30-foot to force Wagner to rise and fall in three doses, but missed and Wagner said his second ACC title in five years.
He put the finishing touches to a quality golf day, with Wagner shooting three-under 69 and Romo shot 66. Wagner finished with 80 points, the second highest total in the history of modified Stableford scoring tournament (since 2003)
Wagner also became the first golfer since 2003 to go wire to wire, capture and verify the 125,000 in the tournament held a record crowd of 40,156 a week, 6.5 percent more than the previous record set the year past.
Check Wagner was very small, but compared to Joe Sakic received one. The star of retired NHL looked into the hole of 167 yards and 17 to earn 500,000, almost the total amount of the portfolio (and 600,000). The ace is worth and 1 million, half of which goes to charity, Lance Armstrong, Livestrong.
Wagner ended a week of great success for the ACC tournament and the owner NBC Sports, before the tournament announced a contract extension (until 2015) with American Century Investments sponsor.
He made it interesting, though.
Wagner birdied six of his first 11 holes, but Romo did not leave. Romo eagle on 11 took him to within six points, and birdie two holes later closed the gap to three.
“I knew that at some point we had to make an eagle,” said Romo, who was driving the green on the hole 315 yards and then made a putt over 25 feet. “It just will not do close-ups. It will not take a double bogey. …
“Jack deserves all the credit here. I mean, he played a great round of golf.”
It is likely that the last round with Berganio in the bag. Berganio played little in recent years, while recovering from an elbow injury and lower back. He plans to return to the tour next year.
“One and done,” said Berganio. “My percentage can only be downloaded from here.”
