ROMO TO PLAY PGA TOUR EVENT
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.
