If you’re still itching to see more of Tony Romo on the golf course, you’re in luck. Romo will make his return to the PGA Tour at the Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship later this month.
On Wednesday, the Tour announced that Romo accepted a sponsor’s exemption into the event held from March 28-31 in the Dominican Republic.
Romo released a statement expressing his gratitude for the opportunity.
“Golf has been a passion of mine throughout my life, giving me another athletic outlet to hone my skills and compete. The opportunity to compete at the highest levels of golf, the PGA Tour event, was a dream come true for me. I’m thankful to the Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship for inviting me to join them once again this year, and I’m excited at the chance to compete against the best of the best.”
When most people hear the name Tony Romo, they usually think of football, not golf. Romo starred at quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys during a lengthy NFL career. Now he sits in the booth analyzing games during CBS Sports’ NFL broadcasts, including this year’s Super Bowl.
A lifetime golfer, Romo made his PGA Tour debut at last year’s Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship. But it didn’t go as well as he envisioned. Romo shot 77-82 to miss the cut and finish in last place.
He did show some flashes of stellar play later in the year, though, winning two amateur tournaments.
This won’t be your last chance to catch the former NFL star on the PGA Tour in 2019. Earlier this year, Romo accepted a sponsor’s exemption to play the AT&T Byron Nelson in May.
