Cowboys Ex Romo '8-Hour Golf Day' Leads To Pro Invite

Romo carries a +1.8 handicap, and he has competed in multiple pro events on exemptions. The former Cowboys QB is ready to try it again

Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo's competitive nature always showed up on the football field and now shows up in the CBS broadcast booth.

And all along? It's always been on display on the golf course as well, the four-time Pro Bowler recently telling the Subpar Podcast that he is often on the course practicing "for a good six to eight hours."

That practice might just come in handy in April when, thanks to a sponsors exemption, he will be competing on the Korn Ferry Tour in as he takes part in the 2021 Veritex Bank Championship.

Organizers of the Veritex Bank Championship announced Tuesday that Romo will play in the event from Texas Rangers Golf Club in Arlington.

This will mark the sixth career professional event Romo has played in since 2018. He has yet to make the cut in the previous five tournaments.
