Billy Joe Tolliver won the American Century Championship for the fourth time, beating Mark Rypien with a par on the third hole of a playoff Sunday at Stateline, Nev.

Both former NFL quarterbacks finished 54 holes at Edgewood Tahoe tied at 67 points in the modified Stableford format.

On the par-5 18th hole in the playoff, they had matching pars and birdies on the first two extra holes. Tolliver then took advantage of Rypien's pitch shot into the water, winning with a two-putt par from 25 feet.

"I have never been in a playoff like this before," said Tolliver, who won $125,000. "I can't feel my hands right now."

Former A's pitcher Mark Mulder was third with 66 points, and Warriors guard Stephen Curry tied for fourth with Chris Chandler at 64.

"I showed I've got what it takes to win here," said Curry, the second-round leader. "The more I play, the more comfortable I get. It's a great environment to play golf in."
