Former 49ers and Seahawks quarterback Trent Dilfer fared best among Tahoe celebrity golfers with NFC West ties.

Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt played in the same threesome with Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, holding off Big Ben by a point in the final standings.

I watched long enough to see 49ers legend Jerry Rice drain a birdie putt while playing a star-studded threesome featuring Michael Jordan and Ray Allen. Allen also drained a birdie putt on the hole.

Rice improved by six points over his 2008 showing. Golfers get 10 points for a double-eagle, eight for a hole-in-one, six for an eagle, three for a birdie, one for a par, zero for a bogey and minus-2 points for a double-bogey.

Charles Barkley finished in 88th and last place at minus-97 points.
