RENO, Nev. Nike Tns Sale . -- Leave it to Charles Barkley to capsulize the challenges he and others will face atop the Sierra this weekend trying to keep their golf balls in the fairway, away from the galleries and out of the water during the 27th annual American Century Celebrity Golf Championship at Lake Tahoe.Golf is fun, until you hit somebody in the head, said Barkley, the Hall of Fame basketball player whos a 6,000-to-1 long shot to win but still draws some of the biggest crowds at Edgewood-Tahoe Golf Course in Stateline.Two-time NBA MVP Steph Curry, NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers, singer Justin Timberlake and comedian Ray Romano are among the 90 athletes and entertainers who tee off Friday in the 54-hole tournament running through Sunday near the California border, about 60 miles south of Reno.Curry, who finished fourth three years ago in the tournament with a $600,000 purse, will be paired with his father, Dell, who played 16 years in the NBA, and fellow Golden State Warriors teammate Andre Iguodala. He said it will be special to be the tourneys first father-son duo.It will probably get really competitive between us two, which is how it always is, Steph Curry said Thursday.Tourney regulars and Hall of Famers Jerry Rice, Emmitt Smith and Marcus Allen are back, along with more than a dozen past and present quarterbacks, including University of Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh, Carson Palmer, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Alex Smith, Doug Flutie, Jim McMahon, Joe Theismann and Steve Young. Others include former vice president Dan Quayle, NASCAR driver Brian Vickers, Larry the Cable Guy, former Saturday Night Live star Kevin Nealon and Willie Robertson of Duck Dynasty.The Harrahs and Harveys Race & Sports Book across the street has made ex-pitcher and defending champ Mark Mulder the co-favorite with recently-retired tennis champ Mardy Fish at 3-1 odds, followed by ex-quarterback Mark Rypien (9-2), ex-Cy Young closer Eric Gagne (5-1) and Curry (6-1).A month after losing the NBA championship to Cleveland, Curry said he feels good about his golf game but confided he has much less confidence on the greens than I do on the court.Everybody asks if putting is like shooting free throws, he said after Thursdays pro-am. It has a very similar kind of mindset. And its just you, the ball and the target.But theres a lot more variables in golf, Curry said. The biggest thing is just routine. I think thats the biggest correlation between golfers and basketball players.Barkley said he tries to help newcomers understand its quite different than playing a round at their local country club.It aint like regular golf, because there are people everywhere, he said during a recent conference call promoting the event. And like I say, most of the guys will tell you theyre pretty good until they hit somebody. And then they get really nervous, because nobody wants to hit anybody.This year marks the 10th anniversary of one of the most infamous shots at the tourney where yachts and speed boats anchor along Tahoes south shore next to the par-3 17th and par-5 finishing hole.Actor Matthew Settles slicing 5-iron on the 169-yard 17th broke a boat windshield in July 2006 -- a shot playing partner John OHurley called a flaming whoopsie.Ive seen broken windows on golf courses before but never on a boat, OHurley said.It wasnt that strange to former NBA star Chris Webber, who once won a $50,000 charity bet with Barkley on who would finish last.I hit somebody in a boat a couple of years ago and they threw the ball back out like it was a home run at a baseball game, Webber said at the time.Barkley said, I just hit people, I dont hit boats.

Green had bounced around the NBA when he wasnt playing overseas. The Pacers gave up on Plumlee after just one season. Now Green and Plumlee are key cogs in the Suns surprising breakout season. .

Sauber boss Monisha Kaltenborn says the teams vital result at the Brazilian Grand Prix proved it is moving in the right direction.Felipe Nasr finished ninth in Brazil for a valuable two points, moving Sauber above Manor for tenth position in the multi-million dollar battle for 10th in the championship. Manor had occupied that position since Pascal Wehrlein snatched a point at the Austrian Grand Prix in July.Sauber has undergone some radical changes since being acquired by Longbow Finance before the summer break, with the recent signing of technical chief Jorg Zander one of a number of personnel additions in recent months. Kaltenborn thinks the Brazil result proves those changes are having the right impact on the team.We know theres one more race, a lot can happen so theres no need to take it that easy [in Abu Dhabi], Kaltenborn told Sky Sports. Yes this is a very important race for us, it proves the direction we are going is right and sometimes you just needed that little bit of luck as well.We did everrything right, the driver did a fantastic job, the team was right in their decisions and then we had that little bit of luck as well and managed to get these points.

It proved to be a nervy race for Sauber, with Felipe Nasr sat as high as sixth early in the race, with both Manor drivers also lower down in the points at the time of the final race stoppage. Eventually Nasr did what he needed to claim a result he later claimed was like a victory for the team.Kaltenborn admits it made for a nervy afternoon on the pit wall. [It was] very tense because you never knew what was going to happen and we didnt want to get involved in anything. For us it was just hanging on in there, being there, and making sure that if anything comes or happens, we are in that race. Manor was taking exactly that kind of approach and they were not far behind. There was pressure from all sides.
