For­mer Dal­las Cow­boys quar­ter­back Tony Romo is mak­ing his PGA Tour de­but next month in the Do­mini­can Repub­lic.

As a player, not a broad­caster. Romo, an NFL an­a­lyst for CBS Sports, re­ceived a spon­sor’s ex­emp­tion to play in the Pun­ta­cana Re­sort & Club Cham­pi­onship March 22-25. The first-year event is held op­po­site the Dell Tech­nolo­gies Match Play, a World Golf Cham­pi­onships event that at­tracts the world’s top 64 golfers.

“You never know how good you are un­til you go play and per­form,” Romo said Wed­nes­day. “Ob­vi­ously, the odds go­ing against these guys are not great. I think we all know that. But I think that’s what makes it re­ally fun and en­joy­able. I also think that the chal­lenge that’s pre­sented is what a com­peti­tor re­ally wants.”

Romo has tried un­suc­cess­fully to qual­ify for the U.S. Open three times.
