The American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament draws huge crowds and has set attendance records each of the past three years.

With those large crowds in mind, tournament organizers have established rules and standards to help keep the event running smoothly, as well as ensure the celebrities want to return to Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course each year.

The 29th annual celebrity golf tournament is Friday-Sunday at Edgewood, with practice rounds and celeb-ams earlier in the week.
