(Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images) Tony Romo is in contention at the American Century Championship, a celebrity golf tournament at Lake Tahoe that finishes Sunday.

The former Dallas Cowboys quarterback and CBS broadcaster is in third place behind leader Joe Pavelski and Mark Mulder, who won last year for the third consecutive time. 

In the modified Stableford event, Pavelski leads with 48 points, followed by Mulder with 47. Romo has 44 with 18 holes remaining in the three-day tournament. 

Trent Dilfer is fourth and Aaron Rodgers is tied for 11th.

Romo tees off in the final group with Mulder and Pavelski at 9:50 a.m. local time.

Last weekend Romo won an amateur event in Wisconsin, shooting a final-round 69 to win by nine shots. 

In March Romo received a sponsor's exemption to play in the PGA Tour's Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship but shot rounds of 77 and 82 to finish in last place.
