STATELINE, Nevada— Stephen Curry took a four-point lead Friday in the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament.

Curry had 27 points in the opening round under a form of the modified Stableford scoring system that awards a point for par, three for birdie and six for eagle and deducts two points for double bogey or worse.

The Golden State Warriors star had a fast start with two birdies and an eagle on the first four holes at Edgewood Tahoe.

Defending champion Tony Romo was tied for 13th with 16 points. Former LPGA Tour star Annika Sorenstam had 14 points.
