Tony Romo WDs from Korn Ferry Tour event after 4 holes

Former NFL quarterback also pulled out of a celebrity tournament 2 weeks ago, complaining of a similar pain in his left wrist

4: Number of holes that Tony Romo completed before withdrawing from the Korn Ferry Tour’ s Price Cutter Charity Championship in Springfield, Mo. Romo, 40, the former Dallas Cowboys quarterback who is an NFL analyst for CBS Sports, was playing on a sponsor exemption. He stood 1 over when he complained of an injury to his left wrist. “Last thing I want to do is to have to withdraw early from a golf tournament,” Romo said. “I feel like that's something that's not OK, and I'm very upset that I've had to." Romo also withdrew from the American Century Championship celebrity tournament two weeks ago with a similar ailment and had a cortisone shot in the wrist last week. Romo, an amateur with a plus-1.9 handicap, has made four starts on the PGA Tour, all on sponsor exemptions, and missed the cut in each of them. Americans Max McGreevy and Rick Lamb shot 8-under 64s at Highland Meadows Country Club to share the lead in the Price Cutter Charity event (scores).
