STATELINE, Nev. (AP) — Actor Jack Wagner had five birdies in a 27-point round Friday to take a three-points lead over former hockey player Mike Modano in the American Century Championship.

Defending champion Mark Mulder was third at 23, tennis player Mardy Fish had 22, former NFL star Sterling Sharpe 21, and former NHL player Jeremy Roenick 20. Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers had 10 points, two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry and father Dell Curry each had seven, Justin Timberlake finished with six.

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh had minus-8 points. Larry the Cable Guy had minus-20, and Charles Barkley was last in the 84-player field at minus-36.
