Many people know Tony Romo the quarterback and Tony Romo the NFL color commentator. Not nearly as many people know about Tony Romo the golfer. Romo is actually a scratch golfer, good enough to compete alongside professionals, which he has many times in the past.
Romo made it to the second round of qualifying for the Web.com Tour, which is golf's equivalent of the minor leagues, along with playing in a number of pro-am invitationals over the years. He won the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament last summer at Lake Tahoe. He's even competed in one PGA Tour event (more on that in a minute). Now, thanks to a sponsorship exemption, he officially agreed to compete in his second.
Romo will play in the AT&T Byron Nelson at Trinity Forest Golf Club in Dallas from May 9-12. Romo is currently a member at the club.
Tony Romo Handicap
Romo's only previous PGA Tour appearance came last year at the Corales Puntacana Resort Club Championship in the Dominican Republic. He missed the cut in that event after posting an 82 in the second round. Romo has a handicap of +0.3.
Romo hopes he plays far better this time around and makes the cut. Although, regardless of where he finishes, for a former NFL quarterback to be good enough to share the course with some of the greatest players on earth is an impressive feat in itself.
