Mark Rypien wins American Century
STATELINE, Nev. -- Mark Rypien beat out Jeremy Roenick and Annika Sorenstam to win the weather-delayed American Century Celebrity Golf Championship on Sunday.
Rypien took the title for the first time since winning the inaugural event in 1990.
Lightning storms delayed play for more than three hours.
Rypien ran away from Roenick and Sorenstam, putting up big Stableford points on his back nine, going 5 under for a record-breaking third-round total of 33 points and 76 throughout the three-day event at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course.
After finishing in second place in the past two years, Rypien broke through with a win in the 25th anniversary of the tournament.
