Tony Romo accepts spot in Korn Ferry Tour event

Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback, who is 0-for-4 in making cuts on the PGA Tour, will make his debut on the developmental tour next month in Arlington, Texas

Accepted: By Tony Romo, an exemption to play in next month's Korn Ferry Tour event near Dallas, where he spent his NFL career as a quarterback and still resides. Romo will compete in the Veritex Bank Championship on April 16-19 at Texas Rangers Golf Club in Arlington, Texas. It will be his first start on the PGA Tour's top developmental circuit. Romo, an amateur who works as an analyst for CBS on its NFL telecasts, has missed four cuts in as many starts on the PGA Tour. Romo, who will turn 40 two days after the tournament ends, played his entire 14-year career with the Dallas Cowboys. "Playing in the shadows of AT&T Stadium and having the tournament in my own back yard will be great," he said in a PGA Tour news release. "I have been working hard on my game and hope to make a little noise during the championship.” Romo's most recent start in a PGA Tour-sanctioned event came in late September at the Safeway Open in Napa, Calif. He opened with a 2-under 70 but then shot 78 and missed the cut by six strokes.
