Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will take part in this week’s Web.com Tour Qualifying Tournament.
Romo, who is entered as an amateur, will begin play at Lantana Golf Club in Lantana, Texas, on Wednesday morning.
Romo competed at the PGA Tour’s Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship on a sponsor’s exemption back in March. He went on to miss the cut, posting rounds of 77 and 82.
Romo also attempted to qualify for the 2018 U.S. Open in April but failed to earn one of the eight sectional spots after carding a 5-over-par 77 at Gleneagles Country Club in Plano, Texas.
A four-time Pro Bowler during his playing days, Romo is the first former athlete to attempt to secure a Web.com Tour card since tennis pro Mardy Fish in 2014. Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry has played at the Ellie Mae Classic the last two years on sponsor’s invitation.
Romo, 38, retired from the NFL after the 2016 season. He is currently an NFL analyst for CBS Sports.
