NFL stars Travis, Jason Kelce talk about Tahoe’s celeb golf tournament that starts Wednesday

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce said he is expecting to play better golf at the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship Tournament this year.

Maybe his shots will be more Swift.

On the most recent episode of the “New Heights” podcast, which he hosts with his brother Jason, Travis said his previous scores in the last four tournaments have been “atrocious” but that was before he won his third Super Bowl and started dating Taylor Swift.

The Kansas City Chiefs won back-to-back Super Bowls in 2023 and 2024, as well as in 2020.

Karma is a guy on golf course, perhaps.

Swift, who is on tour in Europe, won’t be cheering on Kelce from the sidelines, say tournament directors.

But Kelce is likely to have more fans, many likely tweens, since the football star has being linked to the pop icon.

“The last Sunday is typically me walking straight for the parking lot to the green and just hoping I get through it without passing out,” Kelce said on the podcast. He said he stops even keeping track of how he is doing after the first two days of the tournament.

Jason Kelce will play in the celebrity tournament for the first time this year. The tournament brings out big names in professional sports, actors and politics to play golf at Edgewood Tahoe in South Lake Tahoe. The tournament begins Wednesday with practice rounds and runs through Sunday.

Kelce had advice for his big brother, who recently retired from 13 seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles.

“Just don’t feel bad if you hit somebody because they bought the ticket knowing it’s a bunch of amateurs out there trying to play golf,” Kelce joked of the tournament that brings out some interesting golf swings.
